Finish what ya start...
“For the Lord God almighty has purposed, and who can thwart him? His hand is stretched out, and who can turn it back?” Isaiah 14:27
This is amazing to hear. God once he starts the ball rolling, no one can spoil His plan. No one can turn it back. Once he gets things in motion the only person who can stop God is God. This can be encouraging or discouraging depending what side you fall on. For those that fall on the favor of God, then really you have so much promise right in your hands. However, if you fall on the other side, things will be pretty bad.
So besides wanting to find favor with God, how can I apply this to me. For one, it’s not that I didn’t know, but God once He starts something, only He can stop it. Once he starts rolling on a plan, only He can stop it. This is a wonderful promise. A promise that God no matter what, will finish what He started. That is I have to learn, to complete things and stop at nothing to complete it. It seems that often in my life, I tend to drift and not complete things. But here God is saying to me, “follow my example, finish what you start.”
Lord thank you for this reminder: Finish what you start. Thank you Lord for modeling that for me.
