by Joel Osteen
"I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns" (Philippians 1:6, NLT).
It's interesting that the last thing Jesus said on the cross was "it is finished." It certainly looked like the end. It looked like it was over. But I believe that wasn't just a statement of fact; it was a statement of faith. He was saying to His Father, "I've done My part. I've fulfilled My destiny. Now I've got total trust and confidence in You that You are going to finish what You started." Even though it looked like the end, in reality, it was only the beginning.
When it looks dark in your own life and things aren't going your way, dare to make that declaration of faith just like Jesus. "It is finished." What you're really saying is "God, I know You are going to turn this situation around. I know You are going to heal my body. I know You are going to restore my family. I know You are going to give me the breaks that I need." Don't go around complaining. Speak victory over your circumstances. Trust that He is faithful and that He will complete what He's started in you!
Father in heaven, I thank You for Your faithfulness in my life. I thank You that You will complete what You've started in my life. Today I choose to put my trust and hope in You knowing that You are working behind the scenes to bring victory to every area of my life! In Jesus' Name. Amen.
