God’s promise to keep working on you

September 21st, 2012

I was reading Philippians 1:1-11 just now. It is the introduction to Paul’s letter to the Philippians church. This section is titled “Thanksgiving and prayer”.

I have read this a number of times over the years, but today verse 6 jumped out at me.

It says, “Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.”

I really love the promise of God to keep working in us until He is finished.

It is normal to sometimes feel as though we aren’t making progress in our spiritual life? But we can be assured that when God starts a project, He completes it!

As with the Philippians, God will help you grow in grace until he has completed his work in your life.

When you are discouraged, remember that God won’t give up on you. He promises to finish the work he has begun.

It is a great promise from the King of the universe. It has a warranty that will never run out as it is eternal. Be encouraged by this today!

God Bless,
