Glimpses of grace seen in the everyday

Why Can I Trust?

Circumstances seem to be rushing our world toward certain despair.  Our only hope can be in God—but why?  The combination of three of His attributes are my assurance:

God is wise and all-knowing.  He truly knows what is best and how it will all come out.  (Without this, power + love could be ineffective.)

God is all-powerful and sovereign over all.  He is able to do anything and has it all under control.  (Without this, wisdom + love could be impotent.)

God is good and loving.   He has our best good at heart.  (Without this, wisdom + power could be evil.)  He has promised to “cause everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.” (Rom 8:28, NLT)

Therefore I can trust Him!  My heart echoes Peter’s words, “Lord, to whom else would we go?”  (John 6:68)
