This Day in History: 0000-09-13
September 13 – Philippians 1:6
And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.
Certain. That’s what it says.
Not, I think that God will, not I’m guessing that God will, but I am certain that God will.
Our great God is the Author and Finisher of our faith. He started it when He chose us and called us and drew us to Himself. Have you ever thought about that? The High King of Heaven chose you!
No matter who betrays us on this earth, no matter who abandons or forsakes us, no matter who treats us like we’re worthless, God Almighty chose YOU and me!
He called us, and we answered. We are His. His dearly loved daughters. And unlike people, He will never leave us, He will never abandon us, and He will work in our lives every single day, every single minute, to purify and sanctify us.
He won’t ever stop until that glorious day when Christ, in all His glory, returns to earth to put an end to sin and death once and for all. That day when He’ll wipe away all our tears and make us perfect and complete. That day when He will finally finish what He started when He spoke those first words, “Let there be light.”
Thank Him today for loving you. Thank Him for choosing you and calling you. Thank Him for His faithfulness and for his meticulous work in your life. Thank Him for the promise that He will finish what He started. Believe Him that He will dear sister.
It is certain!
