Friends, when life gets really difficult, don’t jump to the conclusion that God isn’t on the job.
1 Peter 4:12, The Message.
I heard Jerry Savelle mention this verse in a sermon I was listening to and thought it was absolutely powerful. I know in my life I forget that God is on the job. Sometimes in the midst of our lives, we forget that we are a work in progress. We are not who we are going to be. And sometimes I, like most people, get stuck there. When will I get there? When will I be someone that I can be happy with?
But we tend to forget something huge…We are not who we were. There are more pieces filled in. The picture is clearer. The past has been redeemed. The Blood of Jesus has cleansed us of our sins. Victory is not obtainable, it has already been obtained.
We forget that. So we look at what we see, and let go of the promises of God. But we have a God who sings over us ! We serve a God who is not only the creator of the universe, but someone who has numbered the very hairs on our head. If we could catch a glimpse of what He sees….
“If you could see through God’s eyes the you He sees, you’d be excited about today and tomorrow.”
