God’s Nevertheless

December 10, 2018

Nevertheless,
there will be no more gloom
for those who were in distress.
Isaiah 9:1

“There’s always a however in life,” says a coffee-drinking buddy from a town where I used to live.

Only later did I find out he was quoting an AM Radio character named Frank O. Pinion.

Smashing into one of life’s However’s can be frustrating. Sometimes it knocks the wind out of us. Sometimes it’s almost enough to leave us wanting to quit.

You have your examples; so do I.

However, (see, there it is again! only this time it’s a good thing), over these past several weeks I’ve been relishing one example in particular. It’s like The Grand However that outweighs all the other Howevers —

Nevertheless,
there will be no more gloom
for those who were in distress.
Isaiah 9:1

— Several times I’ve started to reach for the proverbial towel and throw it in to signal that I’m giving up. Right about then Isaiah 9’s vault door swings open. Inside are some of God’s greatest treasures.

And that door’s hinge is the word Nevertheless.

We’ll get back here tomorrow.

But for now, as we start a new week together, what situation in your life needs a liberal application God’s Nevertheless?

Nevertheless,
there will be no more gloom
for those who were in distress.
Isaiah 9:1
