“My help comes from the LORD, who made heaven and earth.
He will not let your foot be moved” Psalm 121:2, 3
Have you heard the saying, “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade”? Sounds good but I think a better saying would be “When life throws lemons at you, trust God to make lemonade for you”.
Life can be tough. People who you thought were trustworthy may end up betraying you. Those who you thought you could count on in the hard times, may desert you. And the things you used to take comfort in can change without warning, and you end up feeling like you have lost your footing and you might fall flat on your face at any moment.
Instead of getting angry or planning on how to get revenge, why not trust God to be God and allow him to stand up in your defence.
When you defend yourself, you might end up hurting others or being more hurt than you were before the situation turned sour. But God has strength, wisdom and the whole of Army of Heaven at His finger tips ready to come to your rescue.
In my experience, when people are the least deserving of love and forgiveness, that is the precise time when they need love and forgiveness the most. After all, that is what God did for us. When we least deserved His love, He sent Jesus into our lives to show us His heart for us.
And that my friend, is what Grace is all about.
Do you agree?
