Read Philippians 1:3-8
“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” (v. 6).
Perhaps, like myself, you have a cache of unfinished projects. These are projects I have laid aside to complete at a later time because something else required my attention, I ran out of supplies, or I was bored and needed a change. When I look through my stash of unfinished projects, I remind myself God always finishes what He starts!
Today it may seem God has forgotten you. You may feel like God is never going to finish the work He began in you. Perhaps despair is stalking you with the thought your case is too hard for God. Don’t ever think for one moment God is unable or unwilling to complete the work He started in your life. Your situation is not too hard for God! Don’t quit before God has a chance to finish His work in you. God always completes what He starts. He is faithful to bring His work in your life and mine to perfection if only we will cooperate. God does not have “unfinished business” or “unfinished projects.” (Lee Ann Davison)
“Then I’ll dread not the future, and fear not the foe.
I am safe in His keeping wherever I go;
For no soul that has trusted Him will He forget,
For He never has failed me yet.” — W. J. Henry
God will continue to work until all is perfectly complete.
