Philippians 1:6 (NRSV) I am confident of this, that the one who began a good work among you will bring it to completion by the day of Jesus Christ.
When we watch suspense movies we try to figure out the end of the story, based on what we see at the beginning. Yet what we see in the beginning of the movie and even in the middle is not necessarily a clear picture of what will happen at the end. Most of the time there is a change of events that we did not think would happen.
Perhaps you are reviewing the events that have happened in your life, and you have determined by your current state that you are not where you should be in your journey of faith. God has the power to complete whatever he has started in you, and it’s not over. God knows the beginning, middle, and the end of the story of our life. When you made the decision to receive the gift of salvation, you started on the journey of faith to be what God has intended. For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters (Romans 8:29 NIV).
Regardless of the season that you are in, it is not over until God says that it is over. The good work will be accomplished. It will not be on your time, but on God’s time table.
It’s not over!
