But, again

Friday's post introduced the idea of the word "but" being an indicator of what we really believe. Here's some more:

To operate in the Holy But, we have to put the stuff first and God's truth last. You can't always change the stuff, but you can change whether you're going to receive it or not. What comes after the but is what you received...

Just because we know the truth and live from the truth doesn't mean the external situation is going to change. But we are changed. The Holy But moves you from the circumstance to the solution, and that solution is a Person. It moves you from without to within, the outer to the inner, the temporal to the eternal.— The Rest of the Gospel: When the partial Gospel has worn you out, pages 185, 186

So, put what God promised after the circumstances and stuff. The Psalmists did it all the time; we need to learn from them...
