God Will Finish What He Started
Lord, your love is eternal. Complete the work that you have begun. Psalm 138: 8
If God’s love is eternal, it is always with us. If He called us to start on this journey of faith, we can rest assured that He will continue to draw us to Him. God will never abandon us. He will guide us and do for us what we can’t do for ourselves.
We co-operate by doing what we can. As we do the footwork, we become open to receive more guidance and continue being led, one step at a time. If we could see what the end looked like before we started, where would be the need for faith? God is to be trusted, because His love is eternal. If we have experienced–or even glimpsed–His loving care, it cannot disappear. Even when we feel like we’ve lost sight of Him or the purpose of the journey, He hasn’t lost sight of us. He has a plan for each of us and He will complete it, if we are willing to let Him.
Prayer: Lord, You are with me now. I trust you to complete the work you have begun and take me where you want me to be.
Reflection for sharing: Do you sense some unfinished business, a “work” within you that only God can complete? How can you open yourself to His Presence working within you today?
