You never ask for it—but it’s a much-needed gift! Paul David Tripp calls it “uncomfortable grace”—and explains: “There are moments in our lives when we are crying out for grace, not recognizing that we are getting it. We are not getting the grace of relief or the grace of release, because that is not the grace that we really need. No, what we are getting is something we desperately need, the uncomfortable grace of personal growth and change.” Uncomfortable grace takes us through places we never intended, so we’ll arrive where we’re destined to be. It’s a “thorn-in-the-flesh” grace that develops and refines character (2 Corinthians 12:7-10; Romans 5:1-5). Let’s glory in God’s uncomfortable grace. It’s equally amazing and marvelous! Hallelujah!—Samuel Koranteng-Pipim
