“But the Lord is faithful, Who will establish you and guard you from the evil one.” 2 Thessalonians 3:3
All this week during the Feast of Unleavened Bread I’ve been struck with how good our God is. I’ve felt His presence so tangibly.
I’m so thankful because there have been a few ugly challenges. A false accusation here, an assumption and misunderstanding there. Yet, somehow, He filled me with enough grace to answer them with kindness. Certainly not with perfection, but considering the 100 angry zingers I could have shot back with, I think it turned out pretty well.
He’s been merciful - He always is - but it’s more than merely extending grace and mercy to me. He became my Grace and Mercy.
He made a way, in the mysterious way He works in our lives, that allowed me to experience a different path. Embody a bit of His grace and mercy, so that perhaps I would have a better chance, an easier choice, of taking that path again the next time a difficult challenge comes along.
Because now that the heat has cooled, I’m so very grateful I took His path. There’s so much less to clean up afterward!
