HE WHO BEGAN A GOOD WORK
Obedience is always the key to a life pleasing to Me. I see your heart when you decide to do the right thing, even when your feelings are not in line yet. I will pour out My abundant grace, for I know that you long to please Me more than have your way. Pray that no sin would have dominion over you.
Every time you hear My still small voice and obey, you are growing stronger spiritually. As you do this, you are training yourself to respond quickly. As you go throughout your day, talk to Me about everything. I never tire of hearing your voice. If you need wisdom and guidance, I will supply it. If you need strength, I will sustain you. If you just want to hear Me say I love you, I’ll be right there to whisper in your ear.
You are coming along fine and I will continue to do all that I have purposed in your life. Put your trust in Me. If I began the good work in you, I will most certainly complete it, for I am faithful to My promises!
Psalm 119:132-135 New Century Version (NCV)
132 Look at me and have mercy on me as you do for those who love you.
133 Guide my steps as you promised; don’t let any sin control me.
134 Save me from harmful people so I can obey your orders.
135 Show your kindness to me, your servant. Teach me your demands.
Philippians 1:3-6 The Message (MSG)
3-6 Every time you cross my mind, I break out in exclamations of thanks to God. Each exclamation is a trigger to prayer. I find myself praying for you with a glad heart. I am so pleased that you have continued on in this with us, believing and proclaiming God’s Message, from the day you heard it right up to the present. There has never been the slightest doubt in my mind that the God who started this great work in you would keep at it and bring it to a flourishing finish on the very day Christ Jesus appears.
