“Once we were dead in sin, BUT GOD made us alive!
Once we were captive to Satan, BUT GOD made us free!
Once we were children of wrath, BUT GOD has promised to spend eternity unwrapping the riches of his grace in kindness toward us!”

Ever notice while reading God’s word or even examine your own life that whenever we as people make a wrong turn in life, God does something to bring us back on course? That’s what is called a “but God” moment. The bible says, what people set out to be evil or harm against us, God uses it for good. A “but God” moment.

Are you in a situation where you are facing consequences for a choice you made? There will be a “but God” moment. Feeling like you are being attacked by someone for no reason. No need to fret there will be a “but God” moment. Whatever it is that we feel down, confused or depressed about, the word promises us there will be a “but God”moment.

Take a look at some scriptures that exemplifies God’s promise of us. The “but God” moment:

“You meant evil against me; but God meant it for good, in order to . . . save many people alive” (Gen. 50:20).

“Their beauty shall be consumed in the grave . . . . But God will redeem my soul from the power of the grave” (Ps. 49:14-15).

“My flesh and my heart fail; but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever” (Ps. 73:26).

“For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die. But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us” (Rom. 5:7-8).

“Eye has not seen, nor ear heard . . . the things which God has prepared for those who love Him. But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit” (1 Cor. 2:9-10).

Know what you have in God and understand that whatever tight struggle you are in, sets up The Lord to stamp a “but God” moment in the situation.
