STANDING ON THE PROMISE!


“I am sure of this, that He who started a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.” Philippians 1:6

Do you ever wonder what God really promises us in scripture? 

There are a lot of things God doesn't promise us:  Perfect lives.  Nope.   No Trials.  Nope  No Tribulation.  Nope.  No promises like these.  No Sickness?  Not a promise.  No mean people in our lives?  Not in the Bible anywhere!    Immense wealth?  Nope!  (Good news is that it doesn't promise us poverty either)    There are thousands of things people think they have found in scripture that really isn't a promise from God. 

Paul knew one of the promises - one that I think is really important to us today as we continue considering how to enjoy life every day:     “I am sure of this, that He who started a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.” Philippians 1:6

The promise of God is this:  What God starts – He finishes. He does not leave you out on a limb. You do your part and God will do His part. You do your best and He'll do the rest.   Don't give up. Don't give up on life. Don’t give up on your dream.  Your calling.  You will reap a harvest at the proper time if you do not give up. God wants you to live a successful Christian life. Fight the fight – run the race – put you faith and hope in God and let the one who started this good work in you bring it to completion.  That my friends is living the successful Christian life!

And this promise means - God's not done with you or me yet.  And that is good news.

Standing on the PROMISE!
