Colossians 2:9-10 For in him dwells the whole fullness of the deity bodily, and you share in this fullness in him, who is the head of every principality and power.
“My children–be not afraid! He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. Remember always that I have conquered the world. So even if you have to suffer for a time, is it not so that the glory of God may be revealed in all its fullness? Children, you have been brought to this day for a reason and a purpose. Do not let fear rob you of achieving your destiny. There is no joy that compares with that of fulfilling the plan of God for you. It is a joy that surpasses earthly suffering to such a degree as to render it meaningless. I do not exaggerate. What you gain has no equivalent loss on earth. When you surrender completely to the will of God, all is gain–ALL is gain. Then, my children, fear nothing. Embrace God’s will in every moment. Enter into the Breath of Love that flows between the Father and the Son. Then you will know a peace that the world can never take away.”
O my Jesus! Now I know that all things work for good for those who love you. Give us grace, O Lord, grace upon grace so that God’s will may be done in us and through us. Help us to live only and always in your will for your glory and for the salvation of souls. Jesus we trust in you–for the glory of God! Amen.
