Manna For Today: Tuesday, July 11, 2017
Revelation 22:13 – “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.”
Our Lord has numerous names and titles given to Him in the Bible, all of which reveal some way in which we benefit from them. In this scripture He is revealed as the Alpha and Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End. This is in consideration of everything that He has responsibility for, including you and I.
The Bible says in Philippians 1:6, “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 2:13 – “For it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose.”
There is a sense in which His credentials and His titles give Him the authority to function in our lives within the credentials or titles confine. I enjoy that Philippians 1:6 encourages our certainty of the beginning work of Christ in our lives with an equal certainty or confident view of the end of Christ’s work in our lives.
My friend, in all of our stumblings, failures, successes, ups and downs, know that God is at work in you daily. As it is on any construction project, things may look really messy before you see the end product but the work doesn’t stop the contractor from doing his job.
Our Contractor works best in messy environments. He is not at all repulsed by our junk but inspired to bless us in the midst of our mess. He started the work and He will finish it.
Remember, you are loved!
Peace and blessings!
