4 But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, 5 made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved.

  • We were dead. But God loved us.
  • We deserved wrath. But God loved us.
  • We were His enemies. But God loved us.
  • We were in bondage to our sin. But God loved us.
  • We were children of disobedience. But God loved us.

I am so thankful that God put a “but” in there! I am so grateful that He didn’t leave me where I was. God had mercy on us! We are no longer dead but have been made alive. We have been saved, sanctified, set free, and set apart. We are loved, chosen, and adopted by God.

  • What have you faced in your life that could have been the end but God made a way?
  • What are you currently going through that you need a “But God” addendum to?

But God suffered him not to hurt me (Gen.31:7). But God shall be with you (Gen. 48:21). But God meant it unto good (Gen. 50:20). But God led the people about (Ex. 13:18). But God delivered him not into his hand (1Sam. 23:14). But God will redeem my soul (Ps. 49:15). But God is the strength of my heart (Ps. 73:26). But God is the judge (75:7). But God overthroweth the wicked (Prov. 21:12). But God was with him (Acts 7:9). But God raised him from the dead (Acts 13:30). But God gave the increase (1Cor. 3:6). But God is faithful (1Cor. 10:13). But God had mercy on him (Phl 2:27).

No matter what life brings, our God has the answer!

    I was in a serious financial problem where were about to have the lights get cut out, mortgage was about to go under. I was in hardcore sports gambling and drinking for numbing inner wounds . A now mentor of mine was able to get me a interview for a job in the maintenance field . Something I had never done before. I had to step through the fear and God spoke through me and gave me favor. I was hired not knowing anything and had to trust through the storms. 10 years later , he blessed me a job that I am supervisor over myself and manage a property of 200 homes and spend most of my day doing outside work able to praise the Lord while doing it. He never stopped putting out his hand while walking on the waters. I’m glad he cared enough to save me.

    But God is : FAITHFUL AND IS FULL OF MERCY AND GRACE FOR A WRETCHED SINNER LIKE MYSELF. The more I stay in Him EVERYDAY the more I realize who I really am and share that love with the world so they can know what I know.
