Spiritual Strength For Each Day

“But God is faithful…” (1 Corinthians 10:13).

The word “but” often occurs at turning points in the Bible. Where the Lord is concerned, it often means glory. When Joseph was in great distress in Egypt, we read of him, “But the Lord was with Joseph, and shewed him mercy, and gave him favour in the sight of the keeper of the prison” (Genesis 39:21). This fact turned his cell into a palace, for where the Lord is it is light and clear; it cannot be dark.

When the children of Korah turned against Moses, it says, “But if the LORD make a new thing, and the earth open her mouth, and swallow them up, with all that appertain unto them, and they go down quick into the pit; then ye shall understand that these men have provoked the LORD” (Numbers 16:30).

The same thing applies to us. When we lived under the power of darkness and were children of wrath, hopelessly caught in the claws of the enemy, God’s almighty “But” sounded through the universe, “But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ” (Ephesians 2:4-5). Should not our lives be lived to the praise and worship of our Lord?
