“Being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ.” (Philippians 1:6 NKJV).
READ: Psalm 127:1-2; Philippians1: 6
The end of a matter is better than the beginning. Once it is not better, the person who started the beginning has failed in life. Hence, you must ensure that whatever you start has the backing of God at the beginning. Whatever God begins with you is what will end well. Many people failed because they began their beginnings themselves.
To personally build anything is to build on sinking sand. It will collapse. You should build only what God initiated. That is the secret of finishing well. The greatest tragedy in life is to rise and fall. It is better never to rise than to rise and crash. Hence, those flying airplanes ensure the engines will be able to fly and land well before embarking on their journeys. It is unbiblical to once drive and own a car and later become a trekker. It is a taboo to once be a property owner and then become a tenant again. I always told God not to allow me to rise to a higher glory that I will ever crash from.
It is known that only one out of every ten successful men finish strong. The other nine usually end up badly. Hence, it is easier to succeed than to maintain it. To finish strong you must allow God to start with you so that He will finish with you. Secondly do not lose sight of the original vision, maintain and sustain it. Do not change principles that are helping you to succeed. Fear God by living a holy life. Then raise others to be your successor. When you leave the scene of success without successors, it means you are not finishing strong.
Lord You are not a God that start what You cannot finish, help me to finish well in Jesus name amen.
