He who began a good work

Phil 1: 6 ‘I am confident of this, that He who began a good work in you will be faithful to complete it ‘
Is there something God has told you to do that seems just too difficult? You can be sure that if He has called you, He’s going to be faithful to accomplish it; through the Holy Spirit living and working within you. So if you tell Him, “I can’t do that, Lord-what if I fail?” What you are really saying is, “God doesn’t keep His word.” You see our total expectation needs to be in Him and not our own strength, energy or ability. When we doubt God’s trustworthiness, that unbelief becomes a kink in our spiritual armor, and we can be sure that this is exactly where Satan will attack us.

That kink in the armor starts with a seed of doubt, which will then grow larger and larger. You might feel that you do not have enough faith to obey, but the Lord isn’t asking you to have faith in favorable circumstances. He’s asking you to trust that He is who He says He is. You see it really is about His character more than it is about ours. It’s really that simple: either He is truthful or He’s not. If you believe that faithfulness is His character, then you can do anything He asks. You’ll be strengthened by your dependence on Him; because He is the true source of our strength.
