"..for it is God who is at work in you, both to will and to work for His good pleasure." Philippians 2:13

"Our sanctification can't be deterred. The same God who justifies, who wrought justification will bring about sanctification. That is an undeniable inevitability. It is God who is the one at work. The immutable, unchanging glorious sovereign majestic righteous holy gracious merciful God, the God who rules all things and always accomplishes His will is never frustrated, always does what He desires. The God who is never thwarted, He is at work in us.

Our god is a God who loves us with an everlasting love. He who holds toward us an eternal kindness, He alone keeps us with an everlasting covenant based on everlasting promises, He is a god whose gifts and callings are without repentance, a god who says that whom He justifies He glorifies, a god who sees us through to the end. Our creator, God, who unendingly, unswervingly commits Himself to us to supply all our needs in Christ Jesus, that God is the one in us. He is the strength of our life...the God who made the world, the God who upholds the world by the word of His power, the God who is sovereign over everything for all eternity,

He lives in us."

God at Work in You
John MacArthur

What an astounding realization.
