Sometimes it’s the little big things that keep you going…
Have you ever thought that? Or had that happen? Or are you wondering what I am talking about?
What I mean is that sometimes you run across a little thought, verse or encouragement and that is all you need to make a big impact on you and provide you with the push you need to keep going.
Social media (Pinterest or Facebook to name a couple) portray many clips and sayings – some that encourage, some that bring on the tears, and even some that invoke anger or another emotion.
But despite all the time I have spent scanning through Pinterest pins, I have found that the Bible is the most encouraging, life-saving, true statements that promote life – and not only life – but a full life. Did you know that?
There have been times when we wondered “did we do the right thing?” or “did we hear God correctly?” Those questions would sometimes come during times of challenge. And it has been a challenge to make the changes we have made. But despite those challenges, the Lord is building a faith in us that I would never trade!
So what is a little big thing that keeps us going? Well, it’s found in the Bible at Philippians 1:6 and it says: “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.”
It’s a little sentence with big meaning: “being CONFIDENT (to be fully and firmly convinced) of this, that He (Jesus) who BEGAN (started) a good work in you (fill in the blank here – ours is Biblical Counseling) will CARRY IT ON (continue it) to COMPLETION (until it is finished) until the day of Christ Jesus (the time of Christ’s return).
What the Lord has started, He will not leave unfinished. There will be a beginning, a middle and an end. So any challenges that we face as we go though this change in our lives, we do not need to wonder if God will see us though – because He will.
What challenges are you facing? Seek the Lord, for He will see you though!
