Read: Hebrews 3:4-6
“For every house is builded by some man; but he that built all things is God” (Hebrews 3:4 KJV)
God is the Master Builder; Jesus is the Chief Cornerstone. God is the one who has to build and equip us for the work of the Lord Jesus Christ. In Philippians 1:6 the apostle Paul writes to assure us that He Who began a good work in us will continue until the day of Jesus Christ [right up to the time of His return], developing [that good work], perfecting and bringing it to full completion in us. What he was saying to us is simply this: “It was God who started this work in us, and it is God who will finish it!”
There are certain things only God can do. We are to do our part and let Him do His. We are to handle our responsibility but cast our care on Him. We are to confess our sins and failures to the Lord, confident that He will forgive us for those sins and failures and cleanse us from all unrighteousness, as He has promised in His Word (1Jn 1:9).
We are to entrust to Him the job of perfecting us for the work He has for us to do in this life. That takes the pressure off of us, which relieves us of the worry and anxiety we feel as often as we try to perfect ourselves.
Prayer: Lord, I wholly offer my life to you. Make me what you will in Jesus name I pray. Amen.
PEACE ON EARTH!
