God's plan is not for His people to fell powerless
- power and
- love and
Why not be anxious, Paul?
God is personally invested in you - as your 'Patron'
He has put His Holy Spirit in you
Defeated death the ultimate enemy for you
And it's all predicated on the faith that is in you
Paul's whole chat with Timothy on this matter rests on the issue he's already referred to:
“I am reminded of your sincere faith, which first lived in your grandmother Lois and in your mother Eunice and, I am persuaded, now lives in you also.”
2 Timothy 1:5
