“This gospel unveils a continual revelation of God’s righteousness—a perfect righteousness given to us when we believe. And it moves us from receiving life through faith, to the power of living by faith. This is what the Scripture means when it says: “We are right with God through life-giving faith!”
Human weakness and inadequacy is something to celebrate, share, verbalise.
It puts us in the enviable place of creating a space for God to move into as the only option available.
It becomes an opportunity to let God see us and for us to see Him.
We come to a halt and have to consider what fits this space and gives God an opportunity to reveal a bigger picture.
There is a conflict between hiding our truth in shame.The whisper often of the enemy on our shoulder.
Or to take the choice of being totally found and transparent and available to become the part needed in the bigger picture.
Jesus knows anguish therefore He can identify with us.
We can be content with the fact that we are incomplete and at a starting point only and have confidence of being guided to a completeness at a finishing point.
Sharing our stories well gives clarity to what surrounds both us and others too.
How to receive well.
How to share well.
How to resist being a Job’s comforter.
How to be a Jesus imitator.
There is an exchange.
An understanding of how to go into the picture and out.
How to be transformed from unrecognisable to recognised.
How to bear the fruits of being authentic and building up what is there to be jigsawed together in the frame.
Create the now.
God, Jesus and The Holy Spirit are in the now.
They have an over arcing perception of what we are too low or close to fully focus and see.
Being led by them is our goal to expanding in fullness and clarity.
We have an invitation to depend fully on God and His awareness or to keep moving within the limitations of what fraction is in our sight.
We have free will to choose independence or guidance.
To have belief that the whole picture is beautiful but faith to know it comes together in His now.
We are being made into a new creation .
The illustration shows the over arcing knowledge of the pieces of the big picture to fit the spaces to create the light to push back darkness.
Four Scriptures that come to mind:
“This gospel unveils a continual revelation of God’s righteousness—a perfect righteousness given to us when we believe.

“fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.”Isaiah 41:10 ESV
“and in the wilderness, where you have seen how the Lord your God carried you, as a man carries his son, all the way that you went until you came to this place.’”Deuteronomy 1:31 ESV
“Like an eagle that stirs up its nest, that flutters over its young, spreading out its wings, catching them, bearing them on its pinions,”Deuteronomy 32:11 ESV
