And the patriarchs moved with envy, sold Joseph into Egypt: but God was with him.
Acts 7:9 (KJV)
When God’s adored royal children
find themselves in heartbreaking
difficulties through no fault of
their own or perhaps because of
their own choosing, may we hear the
Holy roar of Heaven, for the Lion of Judah,
King of Kings and Lord of Lords
is on His way to defend His own.
Imagine with eyes of faith all of
the majestic angels with gold and
silver wings full of every bedazzling
gemstone that has ever been created being
sent to intervene and to bring the message
of God to all His royals called, redeemed.
And the message is this, but God!
For we all need to remember this
glorious and eternal promise.
Whether in a pit, but God.
Whether in a prison, but God.
Whether falsely accused, but God.
Whether in the wilderness, but God.
Whether in prosperity, but God.
Whether in poverty, but God.
Whether on the mountaintop of success, but God.
Whether in the valley of humiliation, but God.
Whether found in favor, but God.
Whether found in disfavor, but God.
Whether in a palace, but God.
Wherever we are or will be, but God.
This must be the royal anthem of
Heaven and all the Angelic Hosts,
but God, but God, but God, but God.
This is what the people of our Triune
God should always be rehearsing,
saying, praying, and praising
but God, but God, but God.
Stand in awe and wonder as we
all expectantly and victoriously
watch and pray for those“but God”
moments in our day to day activities,
a divine and Holy moment where
our triumphant Triune God divinely,
miraculously, lovingly, righteously and
gloriously intervenes in our hearts, souls,
minds, and lives. For truly we can always
rejoice for our all-sufficient Savior, our Jesus,
Jesus, Jesus, Emmanuel is always tenderly
with us and always omnipresently there.
