Transforming Grace

“God will take you where you haven’t intended to go in order to produce in you what you could not achieve on your own. You know what the Bible calls that? Grace. I think there are moments when we’re going through difficulty and we’re crying out, “Where is the grace of God?!” and we’re getting it. No, it’s not the grace of relief and it’s not the grace of release. Yes, we get those in pieces but largely those are to come. It’s the grace right now that we need, the grace of personal transformation, the grace of personal refinement.”

---Paul David Tripp
