From There is No Room For Luck in God’s Sovereign Plans God – Discover His Character by Bill Bright. (Pg. 116-117)

  1. Created in God’s love and image We are uniquely and wonderfully made
    So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them;?male and female he created them. (Genesis 1:27)
    I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;?    your works are wonderful I know that full well. (Psalm 139:14)
  2. In Christ, I am rescued, redeemed, forgiven and made new
    For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, (Colossians 1:13)
  3. I am God’s workmanship
    For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.(Ephesians 2:10)
  4. God will finish the good work that He has started in me
     
    being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. (Philippians 1:6
  5. God is always at work in my life
    In his defense Jesus said to them, “My Father is always at his work to this very day, and I too am working.” (John 5:17)
  6. God will not give me anything I cannot handle in Christ
    No temptation, has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it. (1 Corinthians 10:13)
  7. We do not need to be anxious about anything
    Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! 5 Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. 6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:4-7)
  8. If God is for us who can be against
    What, then, shall we say in response to this? If God is for us, who can be against us? 
    (Romans 8:31)
  9. God will never leave us or forsake us
    Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you. ”So we say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?” (Hebrews 13:5-6)
  10. Nothing can separate us from God in Christ
    neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:39
