More Than Bread Devotional for 6/6/11

6And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.  – Philippians 1:6

Have you ever had that urge to know when God is going to be finished with whatever thing it is that He seems to be working on in your life?  Perhaps your patience has failed and you just wanna know when the trial will be over.  Paul offers encouragement that God doesn’t leave unfinished business and He doesn’t forget us in our time of need.  But I never much paid attention to the fact that Paul gives us a definite completion date for God’s work in all of us.  He will be done at the day of Christ Jesus.  When might that be would be an excellent follow up question and you may be asking yourself that right now.  The only answer I have for you is “I don’t know.”  What I do know is this; it is coming.  It might even be today.  But regardless of when it is, we can rest assured in Him that He will continue to do the work in us that He started and that He will see it through to the finish.
