A Flourishing Finish - Joel Osteen Ministries daily devotion 2 August Wednesday
"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." (Philippians 1:6, NIV)
A Flourishing Finish
goes through seasons of disappointment or difficulty. We all have
unexpected setbacks. Maybe you’re going through something right now that
you don’t understand. Here’s the good news: that disappointment is not
the final chapter. God never ends in a negative. If you will keep moving
forward with your life, God promises that He will bring you to a
flourishing finish. Not a defeated finish, a bankrupt finish, a betrayed
finish, or a barely-get-by finish. No, in your future, God has a
setback, disappointment or betrayal that seems like it’s working
against you, God knows how to turn it around and cause it to work for
you. The key is that when you’re in difficult times, don’t settle where
you are. Don’t put your roots down and think that things are never going
to change. No, for every setback, God has already lined up a comeback.
For every injustice, He has vindication. For every disappointment, He
has restoration. Right now, just begin to thank Him for what He’s going
to do. Praise Him for His faithfulness. Rejoice today because He has a
plan to bring you into a flourishing finish!
A Prayer for Today
thank You for Your goodness and faithfulness in my life. I choose to
cast my cares on You. I choose to trust even when I don’t understand. I
choose to believe that You have a good plan and will bring me to a
flourishing finish in Jesus’ name! Amen."
