“For I know that as you pray for me and the Spirit of Jesus Christ helps me, this will lead to my deliverance. For I fully expect and hope that I will never be ashamed, but that I will continue to be bold for Christ, as I have been in the past. And I trust that my life will bring honor to Christ, whether I live or die.” Philippians 1:19-20 NLT
Paul was confident that his life was in God's hands either way, whether he lived or died. He trusted everything into God's hands. Regardless of the circumstances, Paul had the assurance of God's presence and peace. He trusted God. In Romans 8:28 he wrote this familiar verse - “And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.” NLT Do you trust God regardless of the circumstances of your life? Are you so confident in His care of you that you are experiencing the assurance of His presence and peace? I challenge you today to simply place it all in God's hands and trust Him. He is able!!!
