Do you ever wonder what in the world God is doing? I do.
I wonder what He’s doing in our world, in our country, and in the lives of those around me.
And I often wonder what He’s doing with me. I wonder what He’s doing in me.
Philippians 1:6 gives insight into those questions: “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.”
Other Scriptures say it this way:
“I cry out to the God Most High, to God who fulfills his purpose for me” (Psalm 57:2).
“The Lord will fulfill his purpose for me; your steadfast love, O Lord, endures forever. Do not forsake the work of your hands” (Psalm 138:8).
“[God] who calls you is faithful; he will surely do it” (I Thessalonians 5:24).
God began a good work in me when He redeemed me by His grace and sent His Spirit to live in me. And this good work will be finished someday, because the Lord who is faithful will surely do it!
I love this quote about how God uses our suffering to complete His good work in us:
“God is faithful; he will use the brokenness of the world that is your present address to complete the loving work of personal transformation that he has begun” (Paul David Tripp, New Morning Mercies, March 8 devotional).
When I feel discouraged by the sin that runs rampant in this world and the sin that runs rampant in my own heart, I can take comfort in knowing that the Lord will fulfill all His purposes for me.
No matter what, you can trust your faithful God to complete the loving work of transformation He has begun in you.Share
