There is a place to go with grief, despair, and suffering. When grief gnaws, despair drags, and suffering suffocates, there is a place to breathe, when the hope of breath seems lost. It comes to us in our overwhelming need – the Kingdom of Heaven. In this place of grace, confusion and anxiety are replaced with peace and trust. There is no need to understand and nothing to fear. God is sovereign and trustworthy.
“God’s Kingdom is in our midst” (Luke 17:21) – Jesus Christ is with us and we are not alone. Our Rescue, Rock, Fortress, Stronghold, and Prince of Peace keeps us in our weakness. We are kept by grace until the power that moved Christ to the Cross and kept Him until the work of the Kingdom was done conquers our grief, despair, and suffering.
Kept in the Kingdom we wait resting, breathing, trusting until Love arises. We realize our greatest need has not been relief but restoration in the Resurrection Power of Christ. In our weakness God keeps us in His Kingdom of Grace. He is in our midst until the day the Son rises again.
