When Jesus Said, “It Is Finished” It Is Done. Didn’t He Complete The Work God Gave Him To Do? Believe Him!

God's Faithfulness JoaynnJesus says, “It is finished.” It is done. There’s no need to wait for something more to happen. No matter how hopeless the situation looks, believe him. Let His will be done. Let Him finish his work. Stop taking matters into your own hands trying to finish what God started.

Jesus came and finished what God sent him to earth to do. He completed the job God gave him to do. He didn’t take matters into his own hands. He followed God’s plan. He didn’t come to abolish the law. He came to fulfill the law.

Too often when we try to figure things out on our own, we want what we want when we want it and will do whatever it takes to get what we want. We become impatient and want immediate results. It’s easy to convince ourselves we can do God’s job better than him. We’re in a hurry. “God is taking too long.” Slow down. Be patient.

God is not man, that he should lie, or a son of man, that he should change his mind. Has he said, and will he not do it? Or has he spoken, and will he not fulfill it? (Numbers 23:19) He keeps his word. Believe him.

Whatever you are meant to have, God will give you the desires of your heart. Wait on God to complete it. When life doesn’t work out like you want it to, trust God’s faithfulness. It ain’t finished until He says it’s finished. It is done. Believe him!

Be blessed! – JD

When God Says It is Finished, It is Done. Believe Him. Count It Done

wpid-img_20141212_212014.jpgFor years I lived in fear, afraid of what people would say about or do to me if I followed God’s orders and did what I knew He anointed me to do. I kept fighting against God and at times, gave in to the enemy in my refusal to move forward.

There were times when I wondered if I was doing the right thing when letting the opinions of others affect my decision. In some ways I failed God. I was a people pleaser. I would please everyone but God or myself. Never once considering what I lacked but always had the best interest of others at heart.

I lived in darkness. I couldn’t see the light. I found myself alone. I lost sight of God. I lost some friends and family along the way. At times, I would question my own capability. Better yet, I lacked faith in God’s ability.

I could have chosen to be bitter but I didn’t. Instead it made me stronger, wiser, better. In spite of the negative opinions, haters, naysayers, and those who chose not to support me, it influenced my decisions that much more to do better. I refused to let it dictate my destiny. I persevered. It caused me to soar into my destiny.

While I know I may have a long ways to go before I see the fruits of my labor, I know that my labor is not in vain. God sees and knows everything. God has given me many great gifts even though at times I feel I’m not capable of standing up to the challenge. God knows my heart. It is through his strength I am able to meet every challenge. And for that I am thankful to God.

God sends me through tests to see how I handle things. He gives me little to see how I handle much to prepare for what’s coming. I may never understand the workings of God. But I am so glad I understand and know just how much he loves me and what he has equipped me to do.

God doesn’t call the equipped. He equips the called. I know in my heart that I have been chosen and called by God. No matter what people may do to me, I will keep walking in my destiny. God gave it to me.

Whenever you find yourself faced with a difficult dilemma, know that God is working it out in your favor. He will do what he promised to do. God is faithful. Have faith. God got you!

Be blessed! –JD
