Philippians 1:6 Confidence in Logistical Grace

Scripture Reading : 

Scripture Reading “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 3: 

“And God is able to make all grace abound to you, that always having all sufficiency in everything, you may have an abundance for every good of intrinsic value production.” 2 Corinthians 9:8 RBT “My God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:19
