2 Corinthians 12:7-10 reveals God's Grace for us,

…or because of these surpassingly great revelations. Therefore, in order to keep me from becoming conceited, I was given a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me. Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.

Despite privileges from the Lord, we still need trials in order to seek for God. The Grace of the Lord is all about His love and mercy for us. He is giving it freely to us because it is His desire, not because we have done something to earn it.
