Finished? Closure on a project is certainly the goal each of us ought to aspire to whenever we attempt something. However, due to our own human weaknesses, that’s sometimes easier said than done. Sometimes even important things in life, can lack the finishing touch.
Think about it. “It is finished!” How thankful we ought to be that God is not like us, challenged to completely and totally finish everything that He started.
God’s Word tells us: “When Jesus had received the sour wine, he said, "It is finished," and he bowed his head and gave up his spirit. 30 When Jesus had tasted it, he said, “It is finished!” Then he bowed his head and released his spirit” (John 19:30).
“It is finished!” Jesus could utter these comforting words from the cross because there wasn’t a detail missed or part of the job He skipped or abandoned. It was all perfect. What He finished is a work begun in us that will be completed when each of us stands in the presence of God at death. Thankfully it was already completed for us, that He always finishes what He starts.
We pray. “Heavenly Father, please reveal to me more clearly the work you have for me to do; and then, dear Father, please give me the power through your Holy Spirit to do it. I want my work to be finished when my time has come to leave this earth and go home to you. In Jesus' name, I pray. Amen.” pray. .Amen!”
“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself.
Each day has enough trouble of its own” (Matthew 6:34)
