Philippians 1:6 “. . . 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.”
I get really impatient with God sometimes, just wanting Him to go ahead and do whatever it is He plans to do in my life. And I get impatient with myself, because it seems I’ll never be the person I want to be, that God wants me to be. Doesn’t God have a blueprint to follow, or something?
He’s not a quitter, either. He began His work in us on the day of our conception. From the moment we had life, He began drawing us to Himself, longing for us to someday choose a relationship with Him. And He’s been whittling away at our souls since long before we knew He existed. He’s molding, sculpting, carving, . . . discarding the needless, ugly, useless parts, leaving behind only what is lovely and true and perfect. And He’s taking His time doing it, because He already knows the finished product, and He wants it to be just right.
God is the master architect, and He holds the blueprints of our lives. Trust Him. He will not leave His work undone. Let Him have His way, and the final results will be stunningly, breathtakingly beautiful.
I know You are always working to make me more like You. Thank You for not giving up on me.
