There are a lot of unknowns in this life.
And when the hypotheticals and the “what-ifs” start swirling through my brain (read: attacking with the vengeance of a thousand Trojan fighters), this truth is put on repeat:
“We don’t have grace for that yet.”
God gives grace, sufficient, beautiful, breathtaking grace, for right now. This moment. Today.
We don’t have grace for hypotheticals, because God doesn’t live in the realm of what-ifs.
But, because He changes not, He will give the grace necessary for us to survive all the days He leads us into.
When the what-ifs become reality or when the curveballs come, the grace we need to follow Christ also comes.
Yes, there are a lot of unknowns in this life.
And all of them are fully known by the grace-giving, covenant-keeping God who fully knows us and provides everything we need for every circumstance He ordains for His highest glory and our deepest joy.
Because of the cross, we can now rest and rejoice in the middle of unknowns. We don’t have grace for those yet, but we have Him, and He will hold us fast.
