Passage: 1 Samuel 6:1–6:21
You must deal with the reality of the severity of God’s grace and not just react to the pain of your life.
1. Seek God’s word alone for the reasons for his severity.
2. Draw near to the God of all painful circumstances rather than seeking comfort alone in changing them.
3. Remember that the the severity of God’s grace is displayed most clearly on the cross of Christ.
