    I truly believe there is something in all of us but we must stir it up. If we get pass what people think of us and take root what God says we are, then and only then, we can set the course for greatest.
  • Gail on Philippians 1:6
    I think it means that if you have salvation and then walk away from God, that he will bring you back to him at some time, because he did start a good work in you and he will complete what he started in you, I find this scripture a bit confusing though.
  • Bankole Moses adaralegbe on Philippians 1:6
    The integrity of whoever is promising you anything matters. God as we all know has never abandoned any of His project before. If He has said it,then it is settled. Your circumstances now is never a factor, because whatever He has started , He will finish it,just trust Him He is going to finish that thing He has started . That dream of a brighter future is coming to past very soon. If He has said, go and relax , just follow His instructions, He will not fail you . You are going to shine again, you are not going to die an unfulfilled fellow IJN .

  • Ellie on Philippians 1:6
    If God has called you to be His then no matter how far away you try to run He will, in the end, bring his plan for your salvation to fruition. My son believed when he was young then got mixed up with ratbags and wrong crowd.We just kept praying for him and visit him in jail and when he got out he still prefer drugs etc. Then one day he was so close to death and says that story is between him and God we 'll never know full story but now he 's living for God, telling everyone about the power of God for salvation...He GOD who began a good work in our son 10 years ago will complete what He began.Praise the Lord!
  • Kathy - in Reply on Philippians 1:6
    Hi, I am so blessed to hear your son is now serving the Lord! My son is now in about the same situation. He was near death's door because of his past drug use and present drinking. I am praying God will be gracious to him one more time and he will repent and turn to the Lord. I believe the seed of faith was planted in him and this situation is the way the Lord will return my son to himself.
