Confident

For I am confident of this very thing; He who began a good work in you will finish it until the day of Jesus Christ!  Philippians 1:6

Philippians 1:6 is my life verse.  God in His mercy gave me this verse shortly after He saved me because He knew I would need it!

I’m thankful God didn’t leave it up to me to complete the good work He started in my life.

When I struggle and stumble, falter and fall, face doubt and discouragement, I am confident God hasn’t given up on me!  He keeps His Word!  He started His good work in me, and He is going to finish it!

Paul asked the question, “How foolish can you be? After starting your new lives in the Spirit, why are you now trying to become perfect by your own human effort?”  Galatians 3:3.

Don’t waste time by your human effort, trying to finish the work God started.  It’s foolish and cannot be done.  Only God can complete what God has begun.

  1. It is a blessing that the Lord will finish the needed work in us. Sometimes it’s easy to get discouraged but remembering that He sees our efforts and is working in our hearts brings hope and peace.

  2. So timely to read this Deborah, I was just having a conversation about this and my struggling in trying to do everything right, not realizing that I can only do what God has called me to do, and even then with his strength and comfort with me. God Bless you 🙂
