One of my favourite Bible verses is Philippians 1:6: “being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.” I find it tremendously reassuring and encouraging to know that God finishes what He has started and that the faithfulness which is an integral part of His character means we can trust Him to complete all He has begun. He truly is both the ‘promise maker’ and the ‘promise keeper’.
Promise maker, promise keeper,
You finish what you begin.
Our provision, through the desert,
You see it through to the end.
The Lord our God is ever faithful,
Never changing through the ages
From this darkness You will lead us
And forever we will sayYou’re the Lord our God
In the silence, in the waiting,
Still we can know You are good.
All Your plans are for Your glory
Yes, we can know You are good.
We won’t move without You, we won’t move without You
You’re the light of all and all that we need. (‘The Lord Our God’, Kristian Stanfill)
