For years, every time I read two particular words in Scripture, especially as found in Ephesians 2:7, but God, my heart leaps within me! It is a resplendent sound of joy, assurance, perspective, and calm no matter what questions or circumstances of life may come my way! But God!
Try this. State your condition or question, then add the words, “But God!” For instance, “I don’t understand why I lost my job, . . . but God!” Go ahead, try it.
Soak your soul in just these few passages alone and then listen to the link to follow. Indeed, there is no other answer.
But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive (Genesis 50:20).
David stayed in the desert strongholds and in the hills of the Desert of Ziph. Day after day Saul searched for him, but God did not give David into his hands (1 Samuel 23:14).
My flesh and my heart fail; But God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever (Psalm 73:26).
But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us (Romans 5:8).
But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, 5 even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), 6 and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, 7 that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. 8 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, 9 not of works, lest anyone should boast (Ephesians 2:4-9).
