Inspired by Rev 7:9-12

“But God” by Susan Barnes, an Australian pastor’s wife

"Day after day Saul searched for him but God did not give David into his hands." 1 Samuel 23:14

Quite often in the Bible we come across the little expression "but God". Somehow God interrupts the normal sequence of events and showers us with his grace and mercy. Saul chased David for many years and the reason he was never able to track him down was because "God did not give David into his hands."

In a sense sending Jesus was God's biggest interruption. We all deserved hell but God interrupted the just consequences of our actions by sending Jesus to take the punishment in our place. Romans 5:8 tells us "But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were sinners, Christ died for us." It was God's initiative to send Jesus and interrupt history forever.

Our own testimony should include "but God…" Once my life was heading in a certain direction "but God" interrupted my plans with his grace and mercy. As we go on in the Christian life we find more of God's interruptions. Once we acted in a worldly way, "but God" gave us a new life. Once we thought in a worldly way "but God" gave us the mind of Christ. How grateful we should be that God takes the initiative and interrupts our lives with his love and grace.

Susan likes to write inspirational articles, book reviews, and devotional thoughts on Bible passages. Contact

Indeed! "But for the grace and mercy of God..." As I reflect on the foolish years of my youth and the ways and the people that my Father God used to interrupt my life so that I did not get into deep trouble. That is but a small way that He has `helped' me {Psalm 121} `But God'- He always has a better plan and I thank Him daily for not only helping me but keeping me from harm and sheltering me. What a Great Father! What a wonderful Father He is!
