Life may seem illogical, unexplainable, even challenging but know that God is able. In all of our best efforts in our own strength we fail, however thru the power of God now we are talking. It is the Holy Spirit that enables us pours out His grace to fulfil our purpose in this life.
Did you ever wonder how you got where you are at? You started off in one direction took a u'ee and now you are somewhere completely different. Do you ever wonder where you should be and if you are living life with purpose?
Please know that God has saved us with a holy calling and purpose now all we have to do is believe it. Be persuaded that He is able. The question is are we willling? Paul says, I know who I believed and I am persuaded. How about us? What do we believe and does it persaude us?
I believe alot of us are held back because of fear. Fear is of the enemy and it paralizes us in our tracks. But can we believe this, v7 For God is not given us the spirit of fear, so if fear overcomes us we must identify it immediately as from the enemy and tear it down because we have been given the spirit of power, love and a sound mind. Do we believe this? Are we persauded that this is for us or do we think, Umm this is just for those who are really close to God it couldnt possibly mean me also.
V13 Hold fast the form of sound words which thou hast heard in faith and love which is in Christ Jesus. Believe the words written in the scriptures, believe them with faith and love for Jesus and allow yourself to be fully persuaded that they are for you.
Be not ashamed, you have been given the spirit of power, love and sound mind. Trust and obey, live out your destiny according to God's plan. You will naturally be drawn to your path of life by allowing the Grace of God to cover you, motivate you and guide you. If you know it and believe now committ it unto him, He will take care of it.
2 Tim 1:Be not ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner: but be thou partaker of the afflictions of the gospel according to the power of God; 9 who has saved us, and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began, 12b nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I believed, and I am persuaded that HE IS ABLE to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.
