God is in control of everything, not just when things are going well but also when they aren't. We see this played out as Jesus was dying on the cross. Reading through Philippians 1:1-11, we will see nothing can prevent God from completing his good work in us, it is something we can be confident of. This will prevent us from being passive. We will want to respond by growing in our knowledge and love of him.
