“In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace,” (Ephesians 1:7, ESV)
God is not stumped by an evil world. He doesn’t gasp in amazement at the dearth of our faith or the depth of our failures. We can’t surprise God with our cruelties. He knows the condition of the world, and loves it just the same. For just when we find a place where God would never be (like on a cross), we look again and there He is, in the flesh. Wherever you are or whatever you are struggling with, rejoice in that God is there with you, understanding completely.
Prayer: Lord, thank you for taking me as I am and for not leaving me that way.
