“God will take you where you haven’t chosen to go in order to produce in you what you could not achieve on your own. You know what the Bible calls that? Grace.
You may be saying, “Where is the grace that God has promised me?” And you’re getting it. But you’re getting uncomfortable grace because that’s exactly what you need.
You see, if you’re God’s child and you’re going through difficulty you’re going through an unexpected moment that you would have never chosen for yourself, you’re going through trial or suffering, you better not name those difficulties as a sign of his inattention and unfaithfulness. Those difficulties are a sure sign of a zeal of his redemptive love. You’re not being forgotten. You’re not being forsaken. You’re being loved. It’s grace. It’s grace.”
