When my son, Austin, was 16 years old, he fell asleep at the wheel and had a HORRIBLE accident. His car flipped over 6 or 7 times, crashed into a rock bluff and hit a big tree!
(Not the kind of call you want to get in the middle of church, early on Sunday morning.)
Amazingly, the doctors couldn’t find ANYTHING wrong with him, so they let him go. His grandparents took him back to his totaled car to retrieve one of his new flip-flops that had come off during the confusion.
The front of his little car was entirely smashed into the driver’s seat where he had been sitting. When Austin tried to reach down by the pedals to grab the shoe, his arm wouldn’t even fit through that space!
Austin is a tall, athletic 6 ft. 4 in. kind of guy. WHY were his legs not utterly crushed?
We’ve all seen the movies where the SUPERHERO swoops down and saves the day, and then never comes back.
So, we’ve kind of been trained to think about God that way.
But, God is not Spiderman!
He doesn’t show up just ONCE in our lives to save us, then disappear into the fog, forever. God is GOD 24/7. He’s ALWAYS there for us and His grace is sufficient.
What does that mean?
That means, His FAVOR is more than enough for any situation, past, present or future. Grace is not a onetime deal. (I used it back then…so I guess I’m all out.)
No! God was with Austin way before the accident. God was protecting him as his car rolled over and over.
And God is continually watching over him (and the rest of us) EVERY day!
We can, confidently, go from grace to grace and victory to victory, always reminding ourselves of how GOOD God has been to us!
Tell us about a time in your life when God showed up and rescued you! You can share a comment, below.
Soon after we released the “Hi God It’s Me Again” Devotional, people started coming up to me, asking for more. So I just finished writing a companion “Hi God, It’s Me Again – Journal & Study Guide” to compliment the book.
I invite you, to go further in-depth with each topic by filling out your own personal responses to the questions I ask. Also, I’ve allowed plenty of space for more of your thoughts and prayers you’d like to leave with God.
We’re expecting these “Journals & Study Guides” to arrive in the coming weeks.
