Finish What You Started

Finish What You Started by David Brandon

"Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:" Philippians 1:6

It's easy for me to start something but difficult to see it through to the end. Today's verse has sustained me many times over the years. God has started a work in every Christian's life and He will finish what He started.

As Jesus hung on the cross He cried out, "It is finished." We're not to grow weary in well doing but to keep at the work and will of God for our lives. One day there will be rewards and whatever they may be, I look forward to laying them at the feet of Jesus. My desire to hear the words of Jesus, "Well done my good and faithful servant."

There are those around us who need good examples of someone who can start something good, but also see it through. You may be a Sunday School teacher, a Deacon, or a leader in your church. Stay at the good work Jesus started in you. No matter what you are going through, don't give up. Stay true to Him who never sleeps nor slumbers, He's always available, He will empower you, and equip you for the work He has begun in and through you.

Daily Prayer: Pray that God will enable you to finish well. Pray for discernment and sensitivity to areas in your life that you have started, but need to finish.

On The Go Prayer Focus: Middle Tennessee Outreach this week.  Pray for the team as they minister to children, youth, and adults of all ages in inner-city Nashville.  Pray as we minister and share with them the love of Jesus Christ, that God will bring forth a Bountiful Harvest for the Kingdom.

Thank you for taking the time to pray for this important division of On The Go Ministries. For more information on any our ministries here at On The Go, you may send your questions to info@onthego.org.
