Being confident of this very thing, that He which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ. —Philippians 1:6
In the safety of My care you may rest your soul. No harm can reach you here where My power and protection prevail. With lustful eye, you have often looked beyond that safety, fantasizing how much better life would be apart from the narrowness of My way. You have robbed yourself of much peace that was available to you.
My work is still going on in your soul. Yes, it is “repair work,” and therefore slow and painstaking. But it is My work, and it must be done according to My design, not yours. If My ways seem strange, recall often My tender mercies. Stand on solid ground, look up, believe, and you will see the glory of God.
