Albert Einstein once said that insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
If this is the definition of insanity then our God is insane. He is bonkers. He is out of his mind. He is mad. He is crazy. He is cuckoo. He has a screw loose somewhere.
Why do I say that?
He keeps loving us, providing, fighting, protecting, directing us YET we keep failing, sinning, messing up, rejecting, ignoring, and frustrating Him. He keeps on doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results. Sometimes I think He is like that person that stays in an abusive relationship hoping things will change. I know this is too simplistic but it is true of our God.
It actually seems as if the more we do crazy stuff, the more insane He becomes. Where sin abounds, grace superabounds. (Romans 5:20). In whichever area of your life where there is sins, weaknesses, failings, doubts watch carefully. Those are the same areas where you experience tremendous overflow of grace.
He is loyal to us.
He fights for us.
He defends us.
He provides for us.
He loves us.
He guides us.
He is faithful to us.
Grace is insane. Grace is counterintuitive. Grace doesn’t make sense.
That’s what grace looks like.
