God’s Eraser

God’s Eraser

January 28, 2016

The conversation began something like this, “Mike, you are a really good guy. I think the world of you. We couldn’t have done this without you …” While such words were certainly nice to hear, I began to prepare myself for the one word that would change the entire tone of this moment.

I could almost feel it coming — can you? We all know it. The word is, “BUT.”

In a situation like this, the word BUT acts as a verbal eraser. It eclipses the sunshine of affirmation and shadows our hearts with words that sting. It erases any memory of the praise we just received. The darkness of shame imprints our hearts as we listen to what we should be doing or what we should not have done in the first place. These are the words that stay with us — permanently engraved on our hearts. The words of praise and affirmation are but a mirage, a false promise that we have learned not to trust.

BUT, know this …God has an eraser of His own. Unlike the ones with which we are familiar in personal relationships, God’s eraser is a wonderful instrument of comfort.

While people use the word “but” to shadow words of praise and affirmation with those that wound and often scar, God’s eraser does just the opposite. His eraser permanently and forever replaces words of condemnation and judgment with eternal promises of hope and praise.

Romans 5:8, Romans 11:22 and Ephesians 2:4 are some of many places in Scripture where the words “but God” remind us He erases the bad and replaces it with the good. His eraser offers the promise of hope and the certainty of His love.

The challenge of the Christian life is reminding ourselves to live on the right side of God’s easer. If you know Christ personally, your sins have been forgiven — erased — and replaced with the promise of an eternal home with the One whose love never fails. God’s eraser tells those of us who believe in Him our sins have been forgiven and we have the promise of eternity in the presence of the One whose love for us is certain.

The story of Joseph’s reconciliation with his brothers shows how God also uses His eraser in the midst of human evil. Joseph was well acquainted with the evil things people do to one another and was now face-to-face with his brothers who’d treated him with unspeakable cruelty. He acknowledges this when he says, “You meant evil against me …” (Genesis 50:20b).

His next words reveal what Joseph had learned about God’s grace and the mystery of His ways … “but God meant it for good …” (Genesis 50:20c).

Joseph is now able to see how God had been at work to bring good — both to him and his family — in the midst of human evil. Joseph had come to understand that God is always at work to bring about what is ultimately good and will use the evil of mankind for His purposes.

Knowing the end of the story helps us see the whole picture of God’s purposes for Joseph’s suffering. But when the story is ours, how easily do we reconcile the idea of God’s goodness in the midst of our own difficulties? How do we rest when we see the incredible brokenness around us?

It’s easy to question the goodness of God when suffering in the present tense. In moments when it seems God is nowhere to be found and there is no answer to the question, Why is this happening? … look to the cross.

You might not get an answer to your “why” questions, but the cross — God’s grand eraser — tells us one thing about suffering: It’s NOT happening because God doesn’t care about us, or because He has forgotten us. The cross reminds us everything has been (and will be) made right.

Living on the right side of the eraser means we focus our hearts more on our Savior than our circumstances and trust His ways are meant for our good and His glory. Always.

Father, thank You for the comfort of knowing Your goodness is steadfast and everlasting. Forgive us for those times when we are tempted to allow difficult circumstances to tell us otherwise. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Jeremiah 29:11, “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.” (ESV)

Psalm 117:2, “For great is his steadfast love toward us, and the faithfulness of the LORD endures forever. Praise the LORD!” (ESV)

Deuteronomy 31:8, “It is the LORD who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not leave you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed.” (ESV)

  1. It’s difficult living without my husband who went to heaven 8 years ago tomorrow. I am struggling.

    • Let me share my mother’s story with you, Ida. After my father died, my brother sat down at the table with my mother and me and said, “Mom, all your life you’ve taken care of others. Now it is time to do what YOU want to do.” Mom responded, “I don’t know what I want to do.” “Take your time,” we told her.

      Much later, she called me: “What would you say if I went to Alaska?” I’m thinking “A cruise, how nice.” She continued, “I am applying to go for a year as a short-term missionary.” It was an extraordinary experience.

      Dear Lord, open Ida’s eyes to your plan–maybe not Alaska, but an opportunity she has never imagined. Your will be done in Ida’s life as it is in heaven. Amen.

    • Praying for you, Ida.

    • Melanie Steere says:

      I’m praying for you, Ida. Your brothers and sisters are here with you.

  2. Melissa Denis says:

    @ Ida. Hi. May God be your comfort my sister. Remember God is for you His plans are to prosper you. He sees your struggle and He sees the bigger picture where you’ve grown through the pain of losing you beloved husband. It’s hard now, but weeping endures for a night, your joy wil come in the morning.
    Will remember you in my prayers this morning.

  3. Kristin Necaise says:

    I’m struggling very much. My husband left my 7 year old daughter & I in June (for another woman). He filed for divorce shortly after. We’re awaiting court & our story is very complicated. I just see no restoration as he has made it very clear that he’s never coming home. I trust the Lord, but it’s so hard to see the good that will come from this.

    • Praying for you!

    • I’m praying for you & your daughter that God will give you peace in the middle of this terrible chapter in your life and send fellow believers to walk alongside you and give you both love & support.

    • Praying for you, Kristen!

    • Kristen you can’t see how God is going to use this situation to benefit you and your daughter and to bring Glory
      to His name right now…….it’s not time for you to see that. In the midst of this heartbreaking situation God is
      working, His plan is complete, He knows when to reveal it to you…….He is preparing you and your daughter for much
      greater things…..He holds your future in His hands…..Keep your eyes on the cross, keep looking up, hold on to His
      promise of Jeremiah 29:11 and rest assured they will be carried out. This situation is no surprise to God….He already
      knew what was coming……when all is said in done HE will bring the VICTORY!! Let the circumstances fall where
      they may, if you keep your eyes on the cross. stand strong in faith, hold tight to His promises and let the Lord fight
      the battle…..there is no way you will not come out a VICTOR in Christ. I will be praying for you and your daughter.

  4. @Kristin I’m so sorry to hear that. I’m praying for you. And God has His hand on you and your daughter and loves you both more than anyone ever ever could. It breaks His heart to see you hurting. He will comfort you and come close to you if you let Him God can bring beauty out of ashes and He can restore relationships. Even the ones that seem too far gone and impossible. He has amazing ways. I know it must be very very difficult. But God understands your pain and He cares about you deeply. He wants you to run into His open, loving and Fatherly arms He has a plan and I’m praying for you and your situation.

  5. My mother had surgery for an aneurysm several years ago. As a result of the surgery, she was paralyzed from the waist down and I have struggled with this. She is a God loving woman and had just married a strong Christian man when this happened. I just have difficulty understanding how God would allow her to reach such happiness in her life and immediately allow such struggle. I know all things work for good for those who love Him. It is just a struggle to understand.

  6. I’m struggling to keep my eyes above the waves. God has worked so much good in my life over the past 12 months: bringing me to my knees, surrendering me to Him, helping me to share His love and light so strongly that my teenage children have embraced Him into their lives – each of us soaking up His word with an unbelievable and voracious spirit. Knowing that we are living with Him and with the Holy Spirit in us is a huge source of peace….and, here is my but: but my husband, who is on his own spiritual journey, does not seem like he can get it together to do what is necessary to provide for his family. Some days he seems like he is looking to God, others it is clear that he remains pridefully focused on tying to control every detail…so much so that the big picture is falling apart. Our finances are a shambles, and I am trying to submit to my husband and refrain from indulging my own prideful inclinations to try to fix it…to let him go down his own journey with God and earthly consequences. It is so hard, though, and it is straining our marriage. Dear Lord, help me to stop inserting my own “but”, and instead patiently wait for redemption and the beautiful, eternal ending you have in store after this brief, earthly struggle.

  7. Charlotte says:

    I so needed to read this today and the Lord knew that! As long as I keep the Lord in front of me He will bring good from the evil that is happening in my life. It is extremely hard at this point in this time of my life, but remembering that the Lord has a lesson in this for me. When the time is right according to God, He will reveal His plans for me.

  8. I am grateful for the plans that God has for my life and to know that they are so much better than my own!

  9. I’m still waiting for the day that I no longer have to rely on strong and not so strong pain medication to get through my day and night. I’m almost two months into knee replacement surgery and still going through so much pain. I know God hears me when I cry out and that He is the great healer, but I’m still waiting for the suffering to stop.

  10. The words today have spoken to my heart. What was intended to be evil in my life God has turned into good. Almighty Father has release me of Depression and Fear. Witch I have been listening to for so many years and it completely tore my entire life apart. BUT MY GOD is a forgiving,loving father with abundance amount of compassion and don’t deserved. By grace HE has saved me and now I’m free from all that use to live inside of me. I give all my fears and struggle to God so He can guide me. There is truly nothing God can’t heal. Walking faithfully and truly close at all moments is the Key to life! Thank you Lord I praise you in all. I Love you my Jesus

  11. Father I pray that You would touch each of these women today with Your comfort. Lord each one is facing difficulty. You know the hearts of these women. They are your daughters- my sisters in Christ Jesus. Give them a sense of hope and peace that everything will be okay. God You are good. You sympathize with us in our weakness. Give us strength for this day. May Your grace and mercy abound. Fill us with Your Spirit Lord as we submit to You. Replace our doubts with faith. Replace our fear with Your peace. You go before us. You promise to never leave us. We need You Lord. Hear our cries this morning.

  12. Those bits can butt into our lives.
    They do give us the statement of what it IS that we must surrender completely.
    They define what is keeping us from
    Seeking First The Kingdom of God.

    So simple for me to text….BUT
    So hard to live

    Think I’ll surrender in prayer and believe i my next step will follow in His guidance.

    I know that the sigh I give after I’ve expressed the content of my ” but exclamation” is the surrender which turns my heart to God.

    Ida, praying for you .i can relate to your pain…the 22nd of each month I am reminded my husband went to heaven
    June 22,2012.

  13. Debbie W. says:

    BUT God is faithful
    BUT God loves me
    BUT God forgives me
    BUT I trust in the Lord
    BUT God has a plan for me
    BUT God is sovereign


  14. God has been sooo good to my and my family…and here’s my BUT we just cannot seem to have any true peace ever. Each month is a struggle and even now as I write this our landlord has once again gave notice. We are two months behind and can’t even pay our utilities this month and barely have food. We are trusting God tobring us through again this month but right now iI have only been brought to tears. We have exhausted all resourse but we still have faith that God will see us through. Only 3 days left…

    • I’m praying for you & your family, Ruth. May our Abba, the God of peace and abundance, touch the lives of you & your family in a great and unmistakable way, dear sister.

  15. Last spring I graduated as an RN. After raising my kids, I wanted to continue in a field of caring and nurturing. My first job was very difficult and one review started with how great my patent care is But… and so the questioning begins. “did I hear God right?, why is this so hard”, like the story with Joseph, I’m believing good will yet come from this. I interview this morning for a different position where I am praying that good comes. This devotion was perfect for me today. Thank you!

  16. Debbie Doucette says:

    This devotion hits home to me a lot. I have a sister who is very good at finding fault with people and constantly reminding them of their failures or personality defects. Then justifies it by saying “well I ‘feel’ like you are selfish and don’t care about anyone but yourself”. She also says what she thinks. When she does apologize, which is not often she always follows it with repeating the offence towards me again. Everytime she gets ticked with me or my daughter she sends these long text messages accusing me and/or daughter of very hurtful things but when I say anything to her about how me or my daughter feel she shuts me down with more hurtful words. We are both Christians but it is hard when she thinks she does no wrong. Her biggest offence towards us is we don’t spend enough time with her and my daughter doesn’t spend enough time with her daughter. They are cousins obviously. I recognize I am a hermit. I have a lot of insecurities and don’t have a car to go anywhere. It’s hard for me to reach out to people because I recognize I have a huge problem with feeling rejected. My daughter has issues too. She is having a hard time dealing with stress of not having a father in her life since she was three. She is 17 and struggles with drinking, pot and cutting. With all that we are dealing with all my sister complains about is we don’t show them enough love. My sister has hurt my daughter and me many times and it is getting harder and harder to even be around her. Right now I’m only doing it because of my mother. She is 90 and siblings not talking would kill her. No guarantee after she dies. I might just move far from my sister. Please pray for us. Today’s devotion reminded me that my Heavenly Father can erase all the hurt in our hearts. Any words of wisdom for my specific situation?

    • Someone who cares says:

      Hello Debbie. I am praying for you. Throughout many trials, I have learned to turn to scripture for all my wise advice. Luke 6:17-49, and 1 Corinthians 5 can be helpful in your situation. In a nutshell they say: turn to Jesus for His healing power, listen to what Jesus has to say, follow His teachings, Jesus’s opinion is more important than the opinion of other humans, be kind to your enemies, don’t judge others when you yourself are sinning; however, don’t keep Christians who are actively sinning within your circle of influence. I pray the Lord reveals Himself to you and your daughter during this chapter of your life; there is nothing that can separate you from His love.

  17. Great devotional Mike, thank you for sharing these wise words. “But” has always been one of my favorite words in Scripture and the Psalms are replete with “But God,” “But You O Lord,” “Yet the Lord.” It reminds me that in the hands of God, those hard things in my life swing in the other direction on the hinge of God’s faithfulness. For unbelievers, the “buts” in the Bible are terrifying, but for those who trust in the Lord, “but” is a word filled with hope and endless possibility. Again, thank you for this excellent word today.

  18. Great Words.
    thanks for reminder that “but” its and eraser of all negativity and badly

  19. thank You Lord..I have kept journals for 30 years…I could right a book on how wonderful our Savior is .because He is..and so worthy to
    be praised.I love Him and depend on Him for everything..He likes it that way . God bless you and this beautiful ministry!!!!

  20. This is just fantastic. I’ve never thought about the contrast that you so beautifully put forth, “While people use the word “but” to shadow words of praise and affirmation with those that wound and often scar, God’s eraser does just the opposite. His eraser permanently and forever replaces words of condemnation and judgment with eternal promises of hope and praise. ” That is one of the most insightful things I’ve come across in a while! Wow. God completely does a reversal in His “conversations” with us through His word. Love that.

    I also love this phrase – “we focus our hearts more on our Savior than our circumstances ” Another wow. I’m going to be repeating that to myself many times today! Thanks, Mike, for your insight and wisdom. This is timely for me to read and I will be sharing it.

  21. Lynette Hughes says:

    When we are facing difficult circumstances, it is so hard to see God’s hand at work. Our focus is so limited. It is when we can look back & see how He has carried us through that we see the “but God” that was there all along. The challenge for me is to not become discouraged & give in to doubt. I believe that God allows us to go through these times to teach us to look for His hand. The more I can look back & see the deliverance He has provided, the more apt I am to trust Him during my next difficulty. I am so thankful for the “but God” moments from my past. I am realizing more & more how much I truly need Him. God is Faithful.

  22. I am in the middle of a divorce as well that I feel like isn’t right. My husband is not a true believer and does not know the faithfulness and grace of God. He’s full of ‘buts’, “I loved you so much, but this last year has been so bad”, he is focused on the difficult part of our lives and mistakes made and wrongs done, that he lets ‘but’ overshadow God’s blessings in each other. He has hardened his heart to the point I don’t think I could ever reach him. I’m praying God does, I’m praying that He restore our marriage and out of this make us both stronger believers that know “but for God’s grace”, “but for God’s love”, “but for God”.
    I will pray for each of you on here, and I pray that God bring his comfort and healing in your lives.

  23. Elizabeth Engama says:

    I’m so glad that my Father in Heavens tells of His love in the book Hebhas given, wonderful things in the bible l read when l am reminded that Jesus lives me.
    What a wonderful devotional Mike, what a wonderful way God has used you to speak to my heart this morning. Thank you for this wonderful piece which has touched my heart. May our God continue to use use you to speak to us.
    It’s in Christ

  24. Through my tears from reading God’s eraser I am blessed. This was written from experience and I just couldn’t stop reading.

    Thank you thank you thank you! This would be am incredible bible study or church sermon either one of those huge erasers.

    You blessed me and I will be sharing and the next time I hear but which is daily,I will think of this!

    God bless and keep you!

  25. Beautiful devotion as I go through my day I will remember but if it was not for the Lord on my side where would I be.Continue all to walk in faith and remember God has a plan for all of us.

  26. Thank you for your words today! I’m struggling with some work conflicts today and have been very anxious. Didn’t sleep well last night and am feeling very alone. Your words reminded me that I’m not alone at all and that God has this! It’s just what I needed to read today!!
    God Bless your ministry!

  27. Marilyn young says:

    I read these every day but today’s message just sang to my heart!

  28. Last week I was stranded in a big city over night because my car broke down. I live in a small town, and this was quite scary for me. I was asking God why I had to break down so far from home, I was almost 4 hours away, and then I would feel overwhelmed, and stressed. I had to purposely put God in my thoughts – I know you are here with me, You have everything under control, I know You will keep me safe and get me home, etc. I felt a little bit of peace when I kept God in my thoughts, and I would just sit there and soak it up. It reminded me of scripture – Be still and know that I am God. Sometimes I would forget and stress over my situation, then I would remember that God has it all in hand and He would erase some of my stress. God is good!
    The lesson for this day, keep God in the forefront of my mind with thanks and praise, He has everything under control. itty bitty problem, great big God

  29. God showed he was faithful to me by giving me a beautiful scripture when I needed it the most. My ex had just been arrested. I had my daughter at the fold which at the time seemed like the right place for her. At least I knew where she was and she was safe. Just as I laid my head on my pillow I received a call telling me I needed to pick up my daughter. I reached for my bible and read Habakkuk 3:17-18. Loosely translated it said though the fig tree does not bud … And the sheep have left the fold … Still I will praise him. I didn’t need to be concerned with the circumstances I needed to praise God. So through tears and fears that is exactly what I did!!

  30. A woman in our church has written a book entitled just that: “But, God! My Story of Divine Redemption”. Amazing! Thank you for the scriptural references of times that were “but God.” It’s been one thing after another for my family this year, but we have kept moving through. Thank you for the reminder to also keep looking ahead.

  31. This was so needed today! I have been having such a tough time this week. Like the enemy is yelling so many wrong things, making me doubt myself and getting over the circumstances. I am trying to cling to God. To hear Him…..it’s tough….But God! Yes, thinking on the things He has gotten me through is my mission for today. Not focusing on my situation and focusing on Him is what I need to do. Drown out the enemies words!

  32. Great devotional!!!

  33. I have a special moment I remember when God was faithful to our prayers. My husband had been looking for a new job for many years. He applied to this particular one and heard nothing for 2-3 months. So one night, I got up, drew a circle on a piece of paper and wrote: My husbands new job in the middle. I hung it on the fridge and said a prayer. The next morning My husband saw it and said, “it cant hurt”. That afternoon, he got the call for an interview for that particular job and got the job. My husband and I are believers in Christ but on that day, it made my husband an even BIGGER believer that prayers do work! As a matter of fact, underneath my writing in the circle, my husband wrote the word “WOW”. now that’s something@

  34. Proverbs 31 has been a blessing to me each time I read it. Thank you to all the wonderful contributors as your stories reflects times in my life that make me want to scream, cry, be sorrowful, joyful, happy and find solace in Our God!

    I am thankful for each of your missions in life.

  35. What a wonderful devotional. So very insightful and helpful for anyone who travels this earth. Thank you.

  36. This devotion entered my life when I needed God’s eraser. Yes, I thank you, Mike, for sharing. And I thank God! Where would any of us be without His eraser? He has proven to be faithful in my life. So many times… My precious daughter nearly died at birth, nearly died at age 10 when incorrectly diagnosed (she had undetected type 1 diabetes), nearly died from severe hypoglycemia at age 22. God’s hand resuscitated her! Now she struggles with panic attacks, anxiety, depression, loneliness. Would those who read this PLEASE pray that she would know “It’s NOT happening because God doesn’t care about us, or because He has forgotten us.” She doubts God can love her for she feels so guilty. Please pray for my girl. Thank you, friends in Christ, and thank You, God.

  37. Ruby Salazar says:

    So it’s been 6 months that I lost my job due to the facility closing down. I have been fortunate enough to collect unemployment however, as we all know that comes to an end after 6 months. My six months is coming up soon and I’ve been applying everywhere for an accounting job. Yesterday I went to a job interview for a position and the person that I interview with was a Christian woman. We did the interview portion and then started talking about God and at that moment I knew everything was going to be ok . If I get the job I would love to work there but what I took from that interview yest. was the confirmation I was praying and seeking from God . He let me know that I have nothing to worry about, that he is my provider and all I have to do is trust him and believe .

  38. I feel like every post each day has something for me! It can be hard, but I am trying more to open up to what God wants me to do with my life. I have always struggled with criticism my whole life…Staci you are doing good in this area…BUT…I tune out I get upset and angry. In my eyes I am either good at it or not. I don’t want to be in the middle. I have built up a lot of unresolved issues in my life.. hoping that they would just go away, but if someone criticizes me specially someone that I am close to I can snap. I try so hard to be what everyone wants because I want everyone to like me, but if that person who I am trying to make happy gives me criticism or any kind of negative feedback I through a wall up and get upset.. I can’t turn to God or the cross and ask to let it go, I want to but I struggle with it a lot. And in my eyes I feel like and have been told I have damaged relationships with family members, at the time I felt like they really hurt me, so I didn’t care if I hurt them and if God really was there for me why didn’t He prevent all of it in the first place. This devotion showed me again what I kinda knew, but didn’t always want to hear. God is here for me right now! He may not prevent a situation, but He can bring me through it, BUT I have to look to Him. I pray he continues to remind me that He is here for me and will bring me through and my life will be better than I can imagine once I turn it over to Him.

  39. Has there ever……………..many times. More times than I care to admit. What I didn’t realize at the time of my
    questioning is that HE KNEW…..He knew what was going to take place, He knew what the reactions would be, He knew
    what the results would show…..HE KNEW. I piled question after question after question to Him….why this, why that,
    I prayed, cried, prayed some more…..even got angry and threw out the you don’t love me anymore or this wouldn’t
    be happening to me…..yep, poor Vicki God was withholding His goodness. In His time when He unfolded His
    plan to me…..all my questions had been answered. Every single one of them…..Every doubt that I carried had been
    diminished……the goodness He brought forth was overflowing…..I stood before Him ashamed, embarrassed,
    and humbled…..Today, I don’t question God anymore….He knows what is going to happen, how it’s going to
    happen, when it’s going to happen, who it’s going to happen to….He already knows what my future holds and it’s
    going to happen as He has planned….I can question Him all I want it’s not going to change His plans….so I gave
    up. When unpleasantness or difficulties arise….I run to Him, holding on to the fact that there is a lesson in the turmoil
    if I question anything it’s what am I to learn from this situation…..what do you want me to see, what do you want me to do
    Father….then comes the prayer…Father God, help me to keep my eyes on you….so the mess around me I can not see, help me
    not to doubt You when I have no clue of what’s going on….I know you can turn a mess into a blessing…evil into goodness
    if my mess brings You Glory, then use me Father to Glorify You….In Jesus Holy Name, Amen

  40. Who made you king?

  41. Amanda Stoner says:

    Thank you, Mike. What a beautiful way to describe the story of Joseph and his brothers, and God’s perfect way of accomplishing his perfect will.

  42. Mike, this came in very timely. Now I see that this is truly God’s message for me. I am struggling right now whether this person who betrayed me is sincere with his apologies.
    But (there’s the word) I realized whether he is sincere or not, it is not up for me to decide or judge. God’s love is amazing. Through ask the negative and heart breaking things that happened, I should just continue to pray for him that God will take care of him.
    As for me, I often question why God allowed such thing to happen to His children, BUT I realized there is good in bad. Otherwise my eyes will not be opened to the truth, and I will not change.
    Thank you. You are a blessing Mike. May God use you more for His glory.

  43. This was very uplifting, this is a daily reminder to me to trust in the Lord even through hardship knowing He will bring me out if it.

  44. What an awesome thought! Now I’m going to focus on finding those verses in my bible. Thanks!

  45. Thank you for the words. I just was laid off for a job I’ve had for over 10 years this week. When they said “but we have to let you go” I thought my heart stopped. Trying to listen to God for the next step

  46. I’m consumed with addiction to a prescription drug. It started with my doctor’s suggestion and has spiraled into a full blown addiction after 8 years. I’m dt newly wed and it is about to break my marriage. PLEASE bleed the blood of Jesus over my marriage and the MERCY I do not deserve but so desperately need from my Creator and my husband. I want to be a good wife and one day a mother but if I can not get this under control I will be alone. Blessed be the name of Jesus and all I can ask is for His GRACE.
