Good Morning Gorgeous Friends!!!
It’s a brand new day. A fresh new start. A new day to allow Jesus to work in your life in ways only He can.
Today is December 1st!!! We are officially 25 days to Christmas, possibly 24 depending on how you count it!
Last year, I shared a name of Jesus from the Bible each day leading up to Christmas day. I am going to share those messages again and add to them as God leads me.
May you be richly blessed as God opens your spiritual eyes wider and in more awe of all the facets of Jesus!
Jesus has many names throughout the Bible and each name reveals a facet of His character along with a promise for us as a His people! Jesus was there at creation as the Word that everything was created by and He will return again as the Lion of Judah. He is the beginning of all things and the end of all things! Praise be to God!!!
Today’s Names for Jesus are AUTHOR and FINISHER!
If you have accepted Jesus as your personal Savior then you can trust that He is doing a beautiful work on the inside of you!
And if you haven’t yet accepted Jesus, He is pursuing you with His love so that you can step into the most amazing story that He is writing for your faith walk!
Paul said that Jesus is the AUTHOR and the FINISHER of our faith.
He authored YOU!! He authored your faith in HIM. He has been writing your story since before the foundation of the world. Pause and reflect on that. Jesus has begun a good work in You and as You rest in Him, surrender to Him, lean on Him, and choose Him, He is FAITHFUL to complete what He started!
He is writing a story filled with breakthroughs, gifting, anointing, and calling! He is writing in divine appointments and God given friendships. He is adding in fruits of the Spirit and positioning you to be a mighty vessel for the Kingdom of God!!
And through it all, we are IN PROCESS!
Some days I wish I could speed up the process of being finished already.
I get so frustrated with my slow growth, my hang ups, and my weaknesses..
But then I remember…
I am in process.
He who began a good work in me promised to complete it.
His power is shown when I am weak.
And He is the author and the finisher of my faith.
He is faithful and He will continue to grow up my spirit as I seek Him in all things.
Rest Gorgeous Girl! You too are IN PROCESS. But, He who began the good work inside of you will be faithful to complete it.
And to be in process means you are in the most amazing Hands! You are held in the very Hands that created you, formed you, fashioned you, and chose you. He is molding, crafting, shaping, and growing up your inner spirit so that you can bear MUCH fruit for the Kingdom of God.
Rest and allow Him to work in you and through you. Trust that He is working even on the toughest of days.
Blessings as you lean into Jesus and trust Him to finish the good work He began in you.
