“My God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:19 “ Surely my soul remembers and is humbled within me. This I recall to mind; therefore I have hope. The Lord's gracious functions never cease; His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness. ‘The Lord is my portion,' says my soul; ‘therefore, I have faith under pressure.’ The Lord is good to those who trust in Him, to the soul who seeks Him.” Lamentations 3:20-25 RBT

Slide 31

We can derive some principles from this phrase: “that He who has begun in ya’ll” Let’s make this a bit more personal and just say: that He who began in you…” 1. God the Father, who supported the Philippian believers, a. supports us as well. b. He begins this support at the point of salvation. 2. If you are still alive, God has a plan for your life. 3. He makes absolutely sure that you will stay alive. His faithfulness is the issue here.
