God’s Grace is Working In Your Life

Sometimes we need to take the time to evaluate our lives and understand that, in good times and bad times, God is actively working in your life. We know that He keeps His promises, but He gives us constant reminders of His presence. In the family of God and within the body of Christ, we need to not be ashamed about our circumstances or about our testimony about God (2 Timothy 1:8). He wants us to seek Him and trust in Him in all circumstances in order that we can see the totality of how He works in our lives. He reminds us that He is greatest in our troubles and that His grace is sufficient for us (2 Corinthians 12:8-10). In difficult times, God comforts us and provides healing with His presence. In our humility and obedience to Him and to His Word, He shows Himself to us as a living God.
