Let me ask you a question… Have you ever had someone make a promise to you and in the end, they did not fulfill it? For example, many children had the parents promise to buy them something or to take them somewhere, but when all was said and done, they never came through. Maybe it was a promise from your boss or your husband. Maybe from someone else that you thought you could trust. Now how did you feel when they let you down? Angry? Sad? Disappointed? All of the above? I’m sure it wasn’t pleasant.

Of course, when you face disappointments so often in life, you start to think everyone is the same and everyone will let you down. But that is not true. There is one whom you can trust one hundred percent and will never let you down. That’s God. He promised that if He starts something in you or for you, He will be faithful to finish what He started. Look at this scripture:

“being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it” Philippians 1:6

Yes, He is not like your family, friends, co-workers, boss, lawyer, doctor, or anyone else that made promises to you and failed to come through. You can count on Him. You can trust Him. And you can be sure that He is always out for your best interest.

Now that you know this, you should offer your life completely to Him without holding back and follow His instructions and example. When you give your life to Him, He takes responsibility for you and begins to shape you inside and out into more than a conqueror. He not only completes what He started, but He turns you into the blessing itself so that you never feel incomplete again.

May the God of the Bible Bless You
