Philippians 1:6 Amplified Bible (AMP)I am convinced and confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will [continue to] perfect and complete it until the day of Christ Jesus [the time of His return].
The Apostle Paul was convinced that, without doubt, Christ would bring assurance with every act of love and kindness towards us. This is the case today. Nothing has changed. God’s Will is done in our lives! God knew you and I before we were even formed in our mother’s womb. There’s nothing that escapes Him.
What He started, He will finish! He’s making us better. He’s molding us through every life experience. We don’t always understand His Will at the time that the situation arises; it’s somewhere in the middle to end of the circumstance that we begin to gain an understanding of why something took place. Sometimes God will allow something to happen to you so that He can show you how He has all power and can do what is seemingly impossible.
What if we took more time sitting at Christ’s feet to learn about Him, thus allowing Him to reveal to us things about ourselves, to gain clarity and insight?
What if we put our phones down for at least 30 minutes a day and use that time to communicate to Christ through prayer, praise and worship? What do you think the impact would be if we said no to going out and instead we stay in to do some Biblical studying?
The more time we dedicate to Christ, the more we are perfected. The more time that we dedicate to Christ, the less time the enemy can run circles around us trying to trap us in lack of faith; the more we become positioned to win the fight set before us.
Take some time during the rest of the week to give Christ more time. I guarantee the return on investment!E. Nelson
