Father Will Finish What He Started in You

There are many experiences which we have in life that have altered our behavior. Sometimes we have learned from them but in some cases we have allowed certain experiences to dictate changes to us which have, in turn, affected progress to our destiny. Some of those effects will not be immediate but they hold long-term results for us. Some of us have had experiences where we have trusted God in certain matters and, when expected results did not take place, we stopped believing God in those areas. There have been instances when we trusted in fellow Christians and in ministers who let us down and we adjusted our behavior for future reference and self-preservation. There are people who were once convinced that they had a true prophecy from God or that they had received a burden or a vision from God that was their life’s call and nothing ever materialized on the matter. When that happens we determinedly embrace a “paradigm shift” and woe be to anyone who tries to talk us out of it. Once we were convinced that God’s intentions toward us were large but because we experienced a repeated hindrance, we can end up believing we never did hear from God. Then we wind up believing in our disappointing experience more than we believe the Word of the Lord. But, let us lift up our heads and trust to Father God who desires our fulfilled destiny more than we do, for ”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].” (Phil.1:6, Amp)
