Whatever God has promised gets stamped with the Yes of Jesus. In him, this is what we preach and pray, the great Amen, God's Yes and our Yes together, gloriously evident. God affirms us, making us a sure thing in Christ, putting his Yes within us. By his Spirit he has stamped us with his eternal pledge—a sure beginning of what he is destined to complete.
2 Corinthians 1:21-22 Message

For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.
Philippians 1:6 NASB

Do you think about the fact that from the beginning, God knew you would be alive at this time in history, and that He planned to show Himself strong through you? He puts someone on your heart to pray for or visit or help, and then gives you the resources to do it.

We love God because He FIRST loved us!

This a reassuring post, Karen. I'm catching up on your last several posts. That was sweet of your son to send you such an encouraging message too. I hope you have a good week ahead.
