But God

4 months ago

Every time I read a verse that says “But God,” it is great news that follows. To the left of ‘But God’ in Sacred Scripture appear some of the worst human atrocities, characterized by disobedience and rebellion. To the left of ‘But God’ is hopelessness, darkness, and death. But to its right, following ‘But God,’ readers of Sacred Scripture will find hope, light, and life. With humanity some things are impossible. With God’s intervention, all things are possible. The story of Sacred Scripture becomes one of grace, righteousness, and justice.” God doesn’t just redeem us for Himself. He redeems our stories for Himself as well. And what the enemy means for evil, to destroy our faith, God uses for good. Joesph from the Old Testament is an amazing example of this great truth.
