Whenever you base your faith or “good standing with Christ on your adherence to The Law, you are no longer under grace.
No one could observe The Law in it entirety then, and no one can today!
You are saved by grace, not by works less anyone should boast – Ephesians 2:8!
Accept this grace, for it is a gift, live from this premise and you will not be condemned.
To praise God through our trials is to tell the enemy our God is able
It shows gratitude to our Saviour for his ultimate sacrifice for us
It reveals the depth of our faith and trust in God
It reveals God’s strength being made perfect in our weakness
It speaks confidence in the capability of Jesus Christ our Lord
It gives more grace to stand firm to see the salvation of our God
It gives heaven and earth permission to intervene
To make all things beautiful for us even in the midst of the chaos
It allows all things to work together for our good through it all
It doesn’t matter how far gone things have degenerated
Praising our God for who he is does have a transforming effect
Restorative and recreative effect on everything
And it gives us peace, peace that surpasses all understanding
Isn’t that amazing?
