But God…


But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us…made us alive together with Christ (by grace you are saved) and raised us up with Him, and seated us with Him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus.  -Ephesians 2:4-6 NASB

Speaking what you believe from God’s Word will help you overcome challenging circumstances. Never deny the existence of a problem. Face it, instead, with the truth about God’s character, what He’s done, and what He promises to do.

Strategically placing these two words -BUT GOD- can bring victory to every battle you face. Perhaps you’ve been feeling unloved and unworthy. When you discuss your situation with someone, the key to staying focused on the truth and gaining victory is to end with “But God”… followed by words of faith.

Here’s an example… If you say, “I know God loves me and accepts me, BUT I feel unworthy and unloved”, the problem gets the focus and the final say. Instead, end in faith and power. “I’m feeling unloved and insecure, BUT GOD loved me so much. He’s given me the very life of Christ, raised me up together with Him, and seated me with Him in heavenly places. I’m loved, worthy, accepted, and secure.”

God’s word gets the last word. OR…“The medical report says my body has cancer, BUT GOD says Jesus, Himself, took my sicknesses and carried away my diseases. No weapon formed against me can succeed.

My Father will grant me a long, satisfying life, and fulfill His good plans and purposes for me. “In every battle let God’s Word have the final say!

Prayer Focus

Thank God for His powerful Word that never fails and to help you speak His word in faith.

Ask the Lord to remind you to strategically place, “But God”, in your sentences and end with the promises of God.
