The other side of “But”

The Lord speaks to us in many different forms, through His word, songs, visions or people to name a few.  We often seek to hear from Him for direction for our lives.  The Bible tells us, “In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths smooth. (Proverbs 3:6 God’s Word).  If we do this as directed, wouldn’t our lives be so less complicated?

Faith, trusting in God unconditionally, is disrupted by a self-inflicted battle that many have created for themselves. It often means letting go of what is comfortable and grasping hold of the single thing that blocks us from trusting God, that infamous “But.”

We say, I know God can, “But.”   I prayed about getting the job, “But.”  God said in His word I’m healed, I am more than a conqueror, “But.”  I know God can save them, “But.” If we could relieve ourselves from the bondage of doubt and focus on what is on the other side of “But,” our lives would be totally different.

On other side of “But” is God.  He is there to wipe the “But, “away.  He will wipe away all the doubts, fears, hurts and pains.  God is there to relieve us of worry, to give us peace and to help us sleep.  On the other side of “But,” God will wipe our crying eye and turn our sorrows into joy.  He will give us light even during our darkest hour and be with us when we are lonely. On the other side of “But,” our bodies, souls, and spirits can be healed.  On the other side of “But” forgiveness is real.  On the other side of “But,” our needs are supplied and those in bondage are set free. It is then that it becomes possible to trust God unconditionally.


Be Blessed
