Philippians 1:6New (NLT)
“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.”
We commonly fail to complete certain projects and give up easily on things that we started. There are people who gave up on us and we ourselves gave up on them. (sabi nga nila walang forever) Most of the time we fail ourselves and fail some peoples expectations.
Surely we fail God as it said in Romans 3:23 that we fall short of His glory, we frequently offended Him through our failures and sins. Broken promises to God and our love ones are piling up.
But in spite of all these failures and shortcomings, there is one thing remains true and steadfast and that is God never fails. Paul said that it is certain that God will never give up on us, He will finish what He started, He will continue to work on us until the second coming of Christ.
What a comforting truth. With this we can not afford to stop and quit, knowing that He will never leave us. With this we should strive more to continue and persevere, looking forward for that glorious day where God finally makes us perfect for His own glory and for His own praise.
Come to think of it:
We can’t change anything from our past, just keep moving with the present because our future is already certain and decided with Jesus, our Lord and God who never fails, to Him be the glory and power forever and ever, Amen.
