Sometimes the hardest part of starting something new is the starting of it. Even so, there are some people who are really good starters. They are able to start this project and that project and can often have five or six started projects at any given time.

Completing the project can be another giant hurdle. “Starters” are occasionally really poor finishers—they have no problem starting the something new, but rarely (if ever) see it through to completion.

Not so with God. He not only starts good projects in the lives of people, He is faithful to see the new work through to its completion. In the 1980s, the Christian group The Imperials sang a song that begged God to “finish what You started in me, Lord.” The good news is that we don’t have to beg God to finish the good work that He has begun in our lives. He can and will always finish that which He began in our lives.

“And He said to me, ‘It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give water as a gift to the thirsty from the spring of life.’” – John, quoting God from a vision (Revelation 21:6)
