This little three letter word “BUT” is used to introduce the reason why something didn’t happen. For example – “She stumbled but she didn’t fall.” “It’s a nice dress, but it creases very easily.” If there’s one three letter word in the English language that I am truly be thankful for each and every day is the word “BUT” .
If a sentence starts out in one direction, ‘but‘ can change that direction.
As Christians we have many “BUT GOD” moments. Children’s stories ends with “And they live happily ever after” — in the real world our stories end with “BUT GOD”.
BUT is my favorite word in the Bible. Throughout the Bible we read “but God” or “but when”, or “but God made a way”. Every time we read ‘But’ in the Bible we should pay attention to what comes next — “My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.” Psalms 23:26 ESV
We bring ourselves to become so confident in God’s supernatural ability that regardless of the twist and turns of events, just one ‘BUT’ from the Master is enough to change the outcome.
No one is immune from difficulties, but God gives His children peace in the midst of the uncertainty. A prayer a day will create the right environment for a miracle.
There’s always a but in God’s plan for anything that life throws at us — stay patient and trust the outcome. Jesus have prayed for us that our own faith may not fail – we just can’t give up now. Jesus is praying for us. And when we become physically strong again, we must encourage others.
Genesis 50: 19-21 The Message (MSG) Joseph replied, “Don’t be afraid. Do I act for God? Don’t you see, you planned evil against me BUT GOD used those same plans for my good.”
