Heb. 12:2 looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
The Lord has promised to finish what He starts, He always does. I think one of the things that makes all of us nervous is the fact that the Lord never is nervous. He proceeds the same way in the worst of times as in the best of times. When I look at my circumstances and see a mountain of unanswered prayers and unfulfilled promises and expectations, my tendency is to try to make things happen myself or slip into discouragement and fear. I was in one of those moments in 1990 when this scripture was given to me as a prophesy. It always amazes me how a scripture verse that is received and believed can change everything. That has been 25 years ago now and this promise is still being realized in my life and ministry. The immediate work the Lord performed was in me, I was no longer afraid but I began embracing all the Lord was doing in my life. Here are some thoughts from Matthew Henry on today’s verse.
“The same hand that has begun this good work will perform it: He shall bring forth the head-stone; and again, The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this house, be it spoken to his honor (perhaps with his own hands he laid the first stone), and though it has been long retarded, and is still much opposed, yet it shall be finished at last; he shall live to see it finished, nay, and his hands shall also finish it; herein he is a type of Christ, who is both the author and the finisher of our faith; and his being the author of it is an assurance to us that he will be the finisher, for, as for God, his work is perfect; has he begun and shall he not make an end? Zerubbabel shall himself bring forth the head-stone with shoutings, and loud acclamations of joy, among the spectators. The acclamations are not huzzas, but Grace, grace; that is the burden of the triumphant songs which the church sings. It may be taken as magnifying free grace, and giving to that all the glory of what is done.”
So maybe you have some unfinished business in your life; its going to be okay. He always finishes what He starts. If the Lord is at work in you, completion is certain.
