How to Finish what You Started

Divider
He who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.

Philippians 1:6


Have you ever started on a project or idea but never finished it? Many of us have been called by God to follow through on His promptings. Some of us have started books that have no endings, started school but without passion to graduate, or we have started ministry, but lack the endurance to see it through. It’s difficult to sense the compelling of the Spirit and yet lack the desire towards completion.

As long as there’s a connection to the Lord, you can finish what you started. Through faith and perseverance, the Holy Spirit will use your gifts and talents to complete the calling on your life. You can F.I.N.I.S.H. what you started:

F – Find out clearly from God what you should be doing.
“Lead me in your truth and teach me, for you are the God of my salvation.” (Psalm 25:5)

I – Initiate with small, but faith building action steps.
“I have chosen the way of faithfulness.” (Psalm 119:30)

N – Never take your eye off of the goal.
“I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.”
(Philippians 3:14)

I – Include people of accountability who will encourage you to move forward.
“Where there is no guidance, a people falls, but in an abundance of counselors there is safety.”
(Proverbs 11:14)

S – Savor the small victories to build greater expectations on them.
“But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
(1 Corinthians 15:57)

H – Have an open mind when assailed by self-doubts.
“But this I call to mind, and therefore I have hope: the steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.”
(Lamentations 3:21-23)

Prayer

Dear Lord, I want to finish what I’ve started in faith. Grant me the endurance, patience, and wisdom to move forward even in the days of adversity. In Jesus’ name, amen.

In His Service,
