…being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus (Philippians 1:6).
Hear that, Beloved. God, the creator of the universe, is at work in you.
He’s the Contractor, and he’s building a temple for his Holy Spirit. He calls that temple You. Of course he’s not finished—he won’t be until the day you stand before him. So don’t stress because you’re not “there” yet. You don’t even know where “there” is. Just let God keep doing what he’s doing.
Reasons why God is more trustworthy than your average contractor:
- God knows everything. Your contractor may know more than you, but that’s not saying much.
- God is totally in control of your situation. Your contractor is limited by your budget, local building codes, and those pesky laws of physics.
- God loves you completely, and wants only that which will be the best for you. Your contractor—well, I hate to break it to you, but he’s in it for the money.
So you’ve got a few rough edges—OK, so you’re a mess. It won’t be forever.
As a matter of fact, your forever is going to be amazing.
Happy Tuesday, Beloved.
