Finish What You Started

Divider

Better is the end of a thing than its beginning.

Ecclesiastes 7:8


Many people like to make a big deal of a really good idea. Yet the idea doesn’t mean anything unless there is some kind of drive to make it happen. Many of us start projects that we never get around to finishing. Perhaps we don’t finish because we realized early on that it wasn’t our gift. It’s okay as long as we own up to that truth and not make it habit.

Sometimes we don’t follow through because the work to completion is more than what we knew at the beginning. There’s the time factor, energy depletion, work and family obligations, etc. Some of us never finish because we are lazy and easily distracted from staying on course. Yet there are also those of us who can’t continue because of our lack of faith in God.

If finishing an idea, a project, or a calling continues to nag our hearts and minds, we need to first get before God. Taking out some time for fasting and prayer will help us to align our motivations and desires with what God wants us to do. Perhaps we were a little off course in our ambitions—honest prayer and confession before God will bring renewal and clarity.

After spending time with God, Who sends His Holy Spirit to guide us into all truth, we should have a better sense of what we are to do and how we are to complete it. In Christ we live, move, and have our being. He will not let us down, not just to start a job but more so to finish it well, as the Lord is the giver of our strength, wisdom, and ability.

Prayer

Dear Lord, I’m tired of wasting time and not completing what You’ve called me to do. Renew a right spirit within me to finish what I started in Your name. Amen.

In His Service,
