But God

My flesh and heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever.

Psalm 73:26 (KJV)

What I’m going to say really doesn’t have to do with this verse, but I included it to make this easier. šŸ™‚

You see those two little words located after the colon? Those words “but God”? Aren’t those wonderful words? Okay, sometimes they’re beautiful, depending how they’re used. Like in this verse, it’s saying something negative, then it goes “but God,” and something positive.

And there’s so many other times in the Bible when it goes “but God.” Maybe not using those words but that’s the idea you get.

  • The children of Israel were slaves in Egypt BUT GOD sent Moses to lead them out.
  • The Israelis were trapped at the Red Sea BUT GOD parted the water for them to walk through.
  • Lazarus had been dead for four days BUT GOD called him out of the grave.
  • We were lost in sin, condemned to die, BUT GOD died to save us and rose to give us hope.

The list could go on and on and on.

What are the “but God”s in your life? I’d love to hear your stories! šŸ™‚

We know it well. . . Do we perhaps know it “too well”? Have we become calloused to it? Do we just let the familiar words/thoughts wash over us?

I had no power over sin, no true hope, and a lost and disconnected relationship with Jesus, But God-gave me a unfading hope, the Holy Spirit, and a true relationship with Him! Hallelujah!

“… Ye walked according to the lust of the flesh… and were by nature the children of wrath… BUT GOD, who is rich in mercy, for His great love wherewith he loved us, even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ (by grace ye are saved)”! -Ephesians 2:2-5

This passage constantly reminds me of the power God has to change my life and the lives of others. It tells the whole reason we can be saved, and how we can turn from our natural sin to receiving” exceeding riches of His grace”.
