You Are Safe and Secure
Philippians 1:6 " And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ."
Are you in a hurry today? In the words of Taylor Swift "What's your end game?" Paul is reminding the Church of Philippi that just as Jesus Christ did the work of salvation that we could not do, Jesus Christ will also complete the work that He began in us at His Christ's return. Trouble in our lives begins when we step in to help God out while never really consulting Him. We get tired of waiting on someone or something so we take back control of our lives because we know better and don't want to wait on anything, let alone God.
Today you are living the dash. That is the dash that bridges the start date of your life and the end date of your life. If you are reading this devotional, you don't have an end date yet! lol. So as you live the dash, in the words of another female artist, "let Jesus take the wheel." He is the one how began the work in you and He is the one who will finish it as well.
So what is your job and my job today? Focus on the one who was before there was even a beginning and the one who will be when there is no more. He loves you, He knows you, and He has a plan for you today. Be encouraged and walk in Him today.
