And I am sure of this, that He who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ. Philippians 1:6
God never stops working for the GOOD. He tugs at our hearts and makes His presence known. He readies us to welcome timely rewards and reminds us we are lovingly known. He gives opportunities to welcome JOY and discover a plan of purpose. God knows what we need to find fulfillment in our lives. We are valued and loved.
It’s easy to become frustrated when things don’t go as planned and we live of our own accord. But God wants us to remember who’s in charge of our days and TRUST Him completely. He wants us to remember His timing is not our own.
There are lessons to learn while we WAIT. God helps us welcome gratitude for what has already been done. He provides STRENGTH to endure and arms us with everything we need to be readied for His greatness. He prepares us to serve Him with all of our hearts and recognize He has a purpose for our days.
FAITH is so much more than a wish for something to happen. It is precious BELIEF that no matter what, God WILL bless us. If we truly believe in the power of His plan, it won’t matter how long we wait. As we begin to see God’s work in us, we will recognize some of His greatest gifts come from patience.
We must keep stepping ahead and be faithful. God knows where we will arrive. TRUST He will move us. God will reveal His will when the timing is right. He will help us see what He sees in us; a heart that is willing to TRY even when it’s hard AND love for Him that will last forever.
We will experience important lessons along the way. JOY will come from our willingness to step in truth. We must STOP talking ourselves out of the things God is calling us to do! He will bless our lives and use us in mighty ways. God will equip us to serve Him with gladness. Isn’t that a beautiful plan? In patience we'll learn HOW to TRUST and never doubt His ability to give us strength.
Dear God, You give us desire to fulfill Your will. Thank you for the power of Your love. Help us remember who plans our days so we will focus on our faithfulness. Thank you for ALL You provide. We will embrace each day with a grateful heart and remember who IS handling ALL things. Thank you for the plans You have for our lives. Thank you for what happens when we choose to TRUST and stop trying to figure out everything on our own. Amen
