Philippians 2:13 MSG
12-13 What I’m getting at, friends, is that you should simply keep on doing what you’ve done from the beginning. When I was living among you, you lived in responsive obedience. Now that I’m separated from you, keep it up. Better yet, redouble your efforts. Be energetic in your life of salvation, reverent and sensitive before God. That energy is God’s energy, an energy deep within you, God himself willing and working at what will give him the most pleasure.
Psalm 35:27,28 NKJ
27 Let them shout for joy and be glad,
Who favor my righteous cause;
And let them say continually,
“Let the Lord be magnified,
Who has pleasure in the prosperity of His servant.”
28 And my tongue shall speak of Your righteousness
And of Your praise all the day long.
Who wouldn't want to shout about the Goodness of God..
Working in, over and through your life..??
That's Gods Good pleasure..His pleasure is to prosper you and me!
It's a prosperous plan..
It's a Healing plan..
It's a redemption plan..
It's an eternal life plan..
It's a grand plan..
It's a glorious plan..
It's an awesome plan..full of life..
the abundant best kind of life plan..
It's His best plan..and it's designed especially for you
Child of God..you are a part of His plan..
Somebody ought to be shouting up in this place!
Those who favor His righteous cause?
