Rhythms of Grace -Weekly Devotional

Not as it seems

The world is blinded by lies, that God is not real or under powerful against the demands of life.

Forgetting where life originates from “whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them.

So as we encounter the troubles of this life, the hope we hold onto is that even though, the Grace of God causes righteous get back up right on their feet again, Praise the Lord.

II Corinthians 4:9 NKJV  “We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; “persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed—”

So as I encourage you, even before you were aware of your troubles God was at work to do His good work and His good will in you and for you.

II Corinthians 4:4, 8, 16-18 NKJVTherefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.”

Nb! Remember nothing is at it seems because God is working all things together for the good of those who love Him.
