It has taken me almost my entire life to understand Grace. I spent a year unlearning every false teaching I’d been given over the course of 44 years. Sometimes, though, my mind flits over there. It goes to the place it has known for its entire life. It’s natural, I suppose. But it’s dangerous.
I need to recall my admonition to my children at those times…know Scripture, it will keep you from the lies some people try to tell you about God. Even if you can’t memorize the passages, read every day so it’s in your head. God will call the words you need to your mind when you need them.
I am always grateful when He does.
