There are times when we set out to do a project, remodel our homes, start exercising, read a book or read and study the bible through the year, attend early morning prayer, begin saving for that special trip, etc. and we have such high hopes and we are filled with such excitement and enthusiasm to begin the journey. Then life throws us a curve ball and everything STOPs. We put on the breaks of life and lose our momentum and commitment.
One example is that through all that Jesus endured for us, He laid his life down so that we may have eternal salvation. Jesus never quit, never stopped, and never lost hope. He completed his assignment to the end of a completed journey. He did all that the Father sent him here to do. Our Father loved us so much before the foundation of the world, that he worked hard for six days to create a beautiful world for us to live in. We have that same creative mind and strength to work hard and finish the work we have been assigned to.
We are ambassadors of Christ and he has given us the power and strength to endure and persevere to completion. Whatever you have put on hold or delayed, go back and finish the task and assignment, because there is always a blessing in the work. God is waiting for you to finish writing that book, rise early for prayer or complete your degree. Your blessing is in the completion of a finished assignment.
What is your assignment and have you begun the journey? God says I will alway be with you to guide and instruct you. Step out on faith and trust your inner voice. Be strong and be courageous.
“Thus the heavens and the earth were completed in all their vast array. By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work. Then God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done.” Genesis 2:1-3 NIV
“When he had received the drink, Jesus said, “It is finished.” With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.” John 19:30 NIV
