Finish Well

Divider
This man began to build and was not able to finish.

Luke 14:30


Have you ever asked your child to clean the kitchen and they only put away the dishes? Or you ask someone to review a document and they stop after the first page? There’s something about doing a work halfway that breeds disappointment. Yet, we must be careful to complete the work that God has given us. What are the steps we follow in order to finish well?

Step #1) We ask God for wisdom in the work. (James 1:5)
In order to finish well, we must first begin with an understanding of what we are to do. When we pray and seek God’s wisdom in His word, He will give us an abundance of direction as we humble ourselves to do His will.

Step #2) We step out in faith to do the work. (James 1:22)
We can sit around and think about the work all day long, but it’s not until we get up and start moving that things get done. Our faith in God will be the driving force.

Step #3) We broaden our understanding of the work. (Proverbs 4:7)
As we set about doing the work of God, He gives us insight and direction that we didn’t have at the beginning. This deeper understanding of our work molds it to be better than our initial expectations.

Step #4) We listen to the advice of mature believers about the work. (Proverbs 12:15)
In the Christian faith, there are many believers who’ve been where we are going. We are unafraid to ask for wise counsel, so we can finish strong.

Step #5) We step back after finishing the work to make sure it’s complete. (1 Corinthians 3:14)
When God calls us to do His great work, we want to make sure we’ve done everything we know to do to present it without shame nor regret.

Prayer

Dear Lord, I want to finish Your work well. Lead me in the right steps so I can present my work in faith. Amen.

In His Service,
