My phone app sent me a note this morning:
Romans 5:20 – But where sin increased, grace increased all the more.
Ain’t this good news? Over my life I have learned that I am in need of grace…and will need it for the foreseeable future. The wonderful truth is the more I need grace the more grace abounds. What good news. If nobody else is thankful, I’m thankful. I’m humbled…I don’t deserve the good that I have. I know me.
*Philippians 1:6 (NKJV) being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ*
God is working in your life and He is faithful to finish His work.
Have you ever noticed on campus the scaffolding and blue tarp that go up around the exterior of a building? While at times it may be dusty and look messy, I know that it’s the scene of a renovation or restoration. Men are at work improving a valuable space. Then, after some significant time, there is the big and gorgeous reveal. I instantly don’t remember the mess.
When I consider my life and your life, especially at times when there may seemingly be “dust”, I know that I am watching a divine scene where God is working.
Today, I encourage you: let God complete His work. His work in you is perfect. God is a Master Craftsman.
**When all is said and done—when we reach the big reveal—I bet you’ll be stunning in the glory of the Father and His Son.**
*1 John 3:2 (NKJV) Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.*
Not only did God give me a word to share. But the word was right on time for people listening.
I am thankful for the divine intervention that goes beyond coincidence.
