God Brings to CompletionHave you ever sat back in awe as you recalled numerous instances when God helped you through a challenge, equipped you to accomplish a goal, or rescued you from a disaster? As I was recently reflecting on such things, the Holy Spirit brought to light a phrase that meaningfully describes Godís loving ways: "God brings to completion." Let's explore what each of those words mean.
"Brings" - God Leads
We all know that God leads us, but do we understand why his guidance is so important?
Life is a continual motion of change, improvement, and development. Without motion, life turns into death. When we listen for the voice of the Holy Spirit and obey Yahweh's promptings as they come to us, we allow God to lead us, or to "live through us."
In other words, the reason we do not die is that God keeps us moving through his guidance.
"To" - God Has A Goal, A Plan
In order for a leader's guidance to be effective, it must have a purpose. Thankfully, this is how Yahweh works. He guides us to a desired destination. It could be away from disaster, or it could be into a challenge that strengthens our character. Or it could be to the accomplishment of a righteous goal. These are all legitimate purposes that God may have for directing our steps.
"Completion" - God Fulfills His Plan
Completion is a very positive word, as it implies fulfillment and achievement of a particular purpose or goal. While it does mark the "end" of something, it does not imply failure like the word "termination" does.
Rather, when God completes a purpose or goal, he uses all of the steps that were taken - all the ways that you obeyed him along the way - and he turns them into a beautiful painting that demonstrates how Yahweh's strength and wisdom work together with our passion for God and his righteousness to produce a wonderful effect: completion.
Yahweh constantly helps us achieve victories. These victories glorify his name!
If you haven't recently pondered the many ways in which Yahweh has lead you from victory to victory, I encourage you to spend some time reflecting on your own life. If you can't think of victories right away, it's probably not that you haven't experienced them. Sometimes, we need to adjust our attitudes to become more grateful, and then we can remember the good things that Yahweh does for us. comments powered by Disqus
