Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed—not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence—continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose. (Philippians 2:12, 13 NIV)

Thank You dear Father, that we have the assurance from Your Word that we have a sure hope and a great reason to persevere; and that is, as a people whom You have mercifully called out of darkness into Your marvelous light, it is by Your gracious and mighty hand, and not our own feeble strength that we are in fact able to do anything good at all, and that since it is Your sovereign plan at work in our lives, we cannot help but rest in Your victory and proclaim Your glory in our lives. All praises to You Almighty God!!!
