|One of my grandmother's patchwork quilts.|
Just because the words of the King James Bible are on a modern iPad which is sitting on top of a cotton quilt made in the early 1900s, does not mean that all of these things don't often belong together in the same room at the same time.
So you have not received a spirit that makes you fearful slaves. Instead, you received God's Spirit when he adopted you as his own children. Now we call him, "Abba, Father."
Then "all things are possible" (Philippians 4:13) and "peace beyond comprehension" can be ours (Philippians 4:6-7), because He who "began a good work" will be faithful to complete it (Philippians 1:6)!
Do you know an adoptive family? a foster family? a patchwork family? Maybe it's time to see if you can help with a few unraveled edges.
