“There has never been the slightest doubt in my mind that the God who started this great work in you would keep at it and bring it to a flourishing finish on the very day Christ Jesus appears.”
Some people are great starters but can’t finish anything. Others seem to be able to complete everything they’re given. There’s always a great sense of accomplishment & satisfaction whenever we fully complete a task. When all the loose ends have been tied up and there is nothing else to do, we feel good.
Today’s verse lets us see a little of the character & nature of God. Paul teaches us that he has no doubt that God is a finisher. Whatever God starts in us He’ll keep at until it’s complete. What a powerful characteristic this is. Not only does it show perseverance it also shows outstanding stewardship on God’s part.
Remember that every work that God starts is a great work. The purpose and plan that God has for us are great works. God has already started them in us & He’s going to complete them without question! God is a finisher of everything He starts.
This week let’s allow God to perform His great work in us rather than us pushing back against it. Let’s lend our voice to Him in agreement by speaking out “Yes Lord, I allow your great work in me to progress!” Before long the fruit of our yielding will cause our lives to move rapidly towards a flourishing finish. We’ll notice the swift change & so will all those around us.
