This Is My Prayer - Day 2


...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

God used Paul to plant the church in Philippi. Years later Paul found himself hundreds of miles away in a Roman prison, yet his confidence did not wane. He knew without a shadow of a doubt that God would finish the work he had started through him in the Philippian church.

What has happened to our confidence? This last year has shaken a lot of folks. We need to remember that it is not simply what God has done FOR us (i.e. our salvation) but also what God is doing IN us. We are not saved By good works but FOR good works. God's work in us is three-fold:

  1. Redemption: The work God does for us.
  2. Sanctification: The work God does in us.
  3. Service: The work God does through us.

What is happening around you cannot stop what God is doing in and through you. He who began a good work in you will be faithful to complete it! Today, allow your confidence to be renewed through worship.
