The Author & The Finisher



So many people start off with big dreams excited about their future.  But along the way they hit some set-backs.  God is called the Author and the Finisher of our faith. He’s not only given you the grace to start.  He’s given you the grace to finish.

If it seems dark everywhere you look, you can become so discouraged, you might doubt whether light still exists.  But even if you can’t see the Lord, He sees you.

The faithful provision and sustaining comfort of God at work in our life depends on the character and heart of God and our willingness to trust Him and have peace in our hearts.

Peace is a calming feeling we have inside because we know God loves us and will care for us no matter what.  Peace is the opposite of worry.  When things in life don’t go well for us, we can still have peace by trusting in God.

Things don’t happen just by might, strength or ability.  They happen by the hand of God.  You may have come to the end of your might, strength or ability.  You’ve done everything you can.  Don’t get discouraged.  You have the most powerful force in the universe on your side.

Yes, you might suffer for a short time, but after the suffering, God will make everything right.  He will make you strong. He will support you and keep you from falling.  He is the God who gives mercy and grace.  He chose you to share in his glory in Christ.  That glory will  continue forever.

As you get closer to your destiny, the battles get tougher.  As God promotes you, the road will get steeper.  That challenge is a sign that you’re getting closer to your destiny.  That same God that gave you grace to start is the same God that’s going to give you grace to help you finish.  He knows exactly where your path is leading. Don’t ever give up, look to your Author and Finisher, Your Future.

Hebrews 12:2   Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
