God’s Work Policy And You   Leave a comment

In Ecclesiastes 9:10, we find our God’s work ethic: “Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might…”

Yes, that is instruction for us, but it also does show us how He does things; His work ethic.

Now think about this when we read the following promises from God:

Ephesians 2:10 – “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.”

And so we should have utmost confidence in His capability.

Philippians 1:6 – “…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.”

I take that as a promise. Christ began this work in me and He WILL complete it. Salvation begins with God. He started it. He takes personal responsibility to carry it out with ALL HIS MIGHT to the completion. And He expects us to do so as well. (Ecc. 9:10 is instruction to us.) He will not be deterred….Will we?

Praise God!
