God graciously blesses us in distinct ways. But the greatest way He has shown us mercy is through the death and resurrection of His Son, Jesus Christ.
May God be gracious to us and bless us; may his face shine upon us.Psalms 67:2
These are troubling times. With the pandemic at a full assault, we have to wonder where God is in all of this. Is God there to shower His grace upon us? Will God bless us after this is over?
Some say that God isn’t around. He’s too busy. Our troubles do not bother him. Perhaps God even wants us to die from disease. There are some that say God is punishing us for our inequities.
It’s hard to say when God is punishing us. When God is fixing things for us. When God is allowing us to figure things out on our own. Or when God is working through each of us.
God Gives Us Blessings Because of Grace
Grace is the undeserved kindness that God gives to us. None of us deserve anything from God. A clay pot does not demand things from a potter.
We cannot say that God has not blessed us, or has turned His back on us, because there is a disease in our midst. We accept that even though death surrounds us, that we walk through the valley of the shadow of death, but we fear no evil (Ps. 23:3).
Because of God’s kindness and fondness of us, He has blessed us. The greatest blessing He has given us is the life of His Son, Jesus Christ.
Because of Jesus Christ’s death on the cross, each of us who accepts His sacrifice, will have the reward of eternal life. This is undeserved and is the epitome of God’s grace.
