Hello my dear friends and family through Jesus Christ. I am sharing a different devotional today by Kevin Gerald. It honestly helped me this morning. Maybe it can help you guys as well. You’re welcome to share your thoughts about the excerpt. Enjoy!
“God is not done. God’s not dead and he’s not done! Your life may look or feel like an unfinished painting—a huge mess with pieces missing.
God wants you to know that although you may not be able to see it, He is still at work. He’s still doing a creative and brilliant work in your life and in the lives of those you love. Just because you can’t see the finished product doesn’t mean that it’s not going to be a masterpiece. Philippians 1:6 refers to the unfinished work of God and tells us to be confident that He who began a good work will complete it. So, rest assured: God is still active and hard at work in your life.
Nothing and no one can stop God’s favor in your life! Even if you feel like your painting is a mess, God can use that mess to bless the people in your world.
There is more in mind for you—more favor, more blessing, and more good things!
Think about it: How does knowing God has unfinished work in your life give you hope?
PRAY: Thank you God for starting a good work in me and promising to bring it to completion. Your favor is flowing into my life and I pray you will help me recognize when it is flowing through my life to help others. Give me an opportunity this week to encourage someone in their journey. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.”
My personal reponse to the “Think About It” question: Truly knowing that God has unfinished work in my life gives me extraordinary hope. If I did not serve a purpose here on earth, I simply would not be here. I spend a lot of time pondering on my destiny. I know I want to become a full-time missionary in third world countries. Spending the gospel of love and hope. There are times that I wonder if I will be able to get that chance. As time goes on, the closer it becomes for the Lord’s bride (church) to come home. No matter the case, I will continue to rejoice because my name is written in heaven.
What would your response be to that question?
“11 For the Lord God is a Sun and Shield; the Lord bestows [present] grace and favor and [future] glory (honor, splendor, and heavenly bliss)! No good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly.” Psalms 84:11 (AMP)
Thank you for reading! Stay blessed my loves.
