But God

a-to-z-letters-bBut God. Two of my favorite words in the Bible, widely used throughout both the Old and New Testament.

I don’t mean, you ask God for something and He says no, and in toddler-arguing fashion, you reply with, “But God *insert whine here*…”

No, this term either denotes a contrast or states that something bad was going to happen BUT GOD…intervened. Changed the course. Rescued…

BUT GOD is like having an omnipresent but invisible hero on your side.

I love a good story. A rescue. The beaten down & worthless feeling hope again. Mostly when it’s me.

Maybe because I do feel beaten down by life. Sometimes I’d clearly concede. BUT GOD steps in. Rescues, refreshes and renews my strength.

“My flesh & my heart faileth, BUT GOD is the strength of my heart, and my portion forever.” Psalm 73:26

Do you have a BUT GOD story to rejoice in today? If not, ask Him to give you one. Then thank Him for it.

  1. But God is pretty awesome. I’ve been waiting for a But God moment today, because it’s been a pretty crummy day. And then reading your post reminded me that I HAVE God, which makes any day a good day.


  2. It is one of my favorite phrases in scripture as well! Today, I have been sick and lying on my couch. But God in His goodness has given me sweet kids and a husband who have taken care of me (and themselves!). So thankful for His never ending faithfulness!
