DEPENDABLE,   “WORTH CONSIDERING”      4/20/19     (Across my desk today and pray that you are having a wonderful morning in celebration the resurrection of Christ Jesus as LORD.)

Today’s Scripture
“And 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 Is Finished
At that moment when Jesus spoke the words on the cross, “It is finished,” it certainly looked like the end. It looked as though it was over. But maybe 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 have total trust and confidence that You are going to finish what You started through Me.” Even though it looked like the end, in reality, it was only the beginning.

When it looks dark in your life, when 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 finish what You’ve begun in my life. You are going to turn things around. I know that You are giving me the breaks that I need. Let Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven!” Always remember to speak victory over your circumstances because He is faithful, and He will complete what He’s started in you.

A Prayer for Today
“Father in heaven, 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!”

My Comments:

Through the Holy Scriptures it is easy to see that our Creator is constant and dependable and likes it that way.   Just look at the stars or check out an atomic element chart and the precise way things are put together, even you and me.   But the hard part for me is that HE wants to teach me to also be DEPENDABLE,  That my word is my bond.  That what I say that I do.   I have had dealings with so many Christians whose word was more like an ice cube on a hot side walk in the hot sun.     So if we will allow HIM to,  HE will make us in HIS Image,  He has not given up on that intent.   Jesus came to make that possible for us.  But the big issue is can we get the vision to have faith for HIM to help us become a FATHFUL DEPENDABLE people.    The World is very quickly headed in to darkness due to the Christians not being dependable in sharing God’s Holy Truth AS DIRECTED.  So are we learning to become dependable in all that we say and do or yealding to the call of the flesh at the times?  The witness of Christ Jesus is given when you keep your word.   And when it is finished, as Jesus did.  The Holy Spirit will be glad to help us with this if we ask Him to.    Yours, in HIS great love and wonderful grace and mercy,   Ken<><
