“I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished…”
When roadwork commence on a highway it’s easy to become frustrated. We have to slow down and crawl along while they work to upgrade the road. Eventually it is complete and we are speeding along in safety again. We soon forget that it had ever happened.
Likewise our verse today tells us about the work God has planned in us. He says He has already started it and that it is going to continue. It will keep going until it is complete just like road works. At that time we will again speed along in life and get to the planned destination safely.
The powerful key to victory here is to never allow frustration to set in. God is doing a perfect work in us so we need to slow down and yield to His mighty hand. It may seem slow, bumpy and dirty but as soon as it’s complete we’ll forget the difficulty & frustration that was there. We’ll be speeding along with a smile on our face.This week let’s remember that God is doing a work in us and in everyone around us. Decide not to react in frustration & anger but reach out to others with love and concern. As we do this we’ll reap the same back as a harvest in our life. Rather than people reacting to us they’ll be supporting us.
