Colossians 3:3-4 For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory.
Our spirit man is new but our flesh is old
We have the favor of God
We are His righteous, His workmanship

No, in all these things we are more than victorious through Him who loved us.

God's ways and thoughts are not ours.
Now unto Him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us. (Ephesians 3:20)
