I’m putting 2 letters together to catch up a bit in the A-Z challenge.
“God was kind … and He kept me from being burdened down with sorrow” – Philippians 2:27. Paul’s friend almost died, but God spared Paul that grief. He loves us and wants to spare us sorrow upon sorrow, and look kindly/favourably upon us. It amazes me to think the God who made the universe is favourable towards (or pleased with) me, and not just me, but every one of His children. Remember this if there’s a fellow-Christian you struggle to get along with: God is for both of you, and you can pray His best for both of you, even if you don’t know what that’s going to look like.
“My dear friends, be glad that you belong to the Lord” – Philippians 3:1. God tells us in Isaiah 43: “I have called you by your name; you are Mine.”
If you’re a Christian, aren’t you glad you’re loved and you belong to the Lord?
