THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
HAVE FAITH AND KNOW THAT GOD WILL FINISH WHAT HE’S BEGUN IN YOUR LIFE
At that moment when Jesus spoke the words on the cross, “It is finished,” it certainly looked like the end. It looked as though it was over. But maybe that wasn’t just a statement of fact; it was a statement of FAITH. He was saying to His Father, “I’ve done My part. I’ve fulfilled My DESTINY. Now, I have total trust and confidence that You are going to finish what You started THROUGH Me.” Even though it looked like the end, in reality, it was only the BEGINNING.
When it looks dark in YOUR life, when things aren’t going your WAY, dare to make that declaration of FAITH just like Jesus, “It is FINISHED.” What you’re really saying is, “God, I know You are going to FINISH what You’ve BEGUN in my life. You are going to turn things around. I know that You are giving me the BREAKS that I need. Let YOUR will be done on earth as it is in heaven!” Always remember to speak VICTORY over your circumstances because He is FAITHFUL, and He WILL complete what He’s STARTED in you.
“And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.”
(Philippians 1:6, NLT)
