Has the hand of providence been amputated?
Do we grope alone in a hostile indifferent universe?
No! We’re progressing through every unscheduled, unplanned & uninvited occurrences
From glory to glory,
Everything that happens to us & around us is a glorious eternal welcome from Jesus
We are living on the cusp where
The sorrow &
the groaning of creation around us &
the groanings within us
will finally be no more.
The ransomed of the Lord shall return & come to Zion with singing;
everlasting joy shall be upon their heads;
they shall obtain gladness & joy,
and sorrow & sighing shall flee away
Not only that, but we shall be gloriously perfected.
The whole person—body & soul—
will be made completely new, flawless.
Beloved, we are God’s children now, and what we will be has not yet appeared;
but we know that when He appears we shall be like Him,
because we shall see Him as He is
1 John 3:2
The seeds of Christlikeness are planted in us at the moment of conversion.
Colossians 2:9-10 says that in Christ
“the whole fullness of deity dwells bodily,
we are complete in Jesus
He is in us by His Spirit
We let Him in our hearts
We want Him at home in us
He continuously asks to fill us & we are filled in Him
filled up with all the fullness of God.
Now for us, everything is used for us to transform us
“all things that pertain to life and godliness”
2 Peter 1:3
God dwells in your soul, & with Him we have all that we need
The principle of eternal life is in us,
Our title to heaven is our present possession.
The real estate of our eternal mansions has been bought & paid for
It is all ours. A dwelling in glory.
We are daily in every experience going from glory to glory
We are daily in every experience going from faith to faith
We have already passed from death to life
We are a new person
2 Corinthians 5:17
We are no longer enslaved to sin,
We have now become a slave of righteousness
Instead of receiving the wages of sin—death—
We have received God’s gift of eternal life
We have eternal life & we have abundant life
We live before an an eternal artesian well of spiritual power within us by God’s Spirit in
He is continuously satisfying us & enabling us to live the life He’s called us to
The old has passed away; behold, check it out, the new has come
2 Corinthians 5:17
God’s hand is not amputated
God’s hands are everywhere working good for us
Since God is for us nothing is against us
