CARRIED TO COMPLETION


By:  Blackaby


In the Book of Revelation, John describes Christ as the Alpha and the Omega, meaning “the beginning” and “the end” (Revelation 22:13). In other words, God is eternal; He is not bound by time. God doesn’t just see the future; He’s in the future, just as He is in the past and the present. When God begins something in your life, He already knows how it will end because He is there.

When you became a Christian, God’s Holy Spirit began the work of making you like Christ. He continues to work in your life to bring about holiness, and He will continue to do so until you arrive in heaven to spend eternity face-to-face with Him. You can be absolutely confident that whatever Christ begins in you, He will finish.

If you’ve received a word from God about something He wants to do in your life, trust that He will make it happen. Don’t let circumstances discourage you; God isn’t intimidated by your circumstances. Obey Him with confidence because God always completes what He starts. If you sensed God telling you He would make you into a missionary one day, believe that He will. He has seen the future. He knows what will happen. If you sensed God saying that He would use your life to encourage others in some way, know that God is perfectly capable of doing what He says. When God says something to you, immediately adjust your life to what He has told you and then watch to see how God makes everything He said become a reality.

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. – Phil. 1: 6 (NIV)
