Daily Devotional with Pastor Jon

July 4

And David said to Solomon his son, Be strong and of good courage, and do it: fear not, nor be dismayed: for the LORD God, even my God, will be with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee, until thou hast finished all the work for the service of the house of the LORD.

1 Chronicles 28:20

Paul was “confident of this very thing, that He Who began a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ” (see Philippians 1:6). Therefore, as sure as a promise was made to Solomon, so the same promise is given to you. You can come to a point in your life where you realize that the dreams you had, the goals you set aren’t going to happen. That can, if you’re not careful, send you into an introspective crisis. But if you’re a believer, there won’t be a crisis because the promise of God is that what He wants to do in you will be completed. Period.

Zacharias was a priest. His wife, Elisabeth, was a priest’s daughter. For years, they prayed that they might have a child. Suddenly, as Zacharias was serving in the Temple, an angel appeared and told him his prayer had been heard (Luke 1). Now, I bet Zacharias had stopped praying when Elisabeth passed the age of childbearing. I’m sure he had forgotten all about the prayer he had prayed. Maybe you can relate to that. At one time, you felt you were praying in harmony with God’s heart - but nothing happened. Don’t give up. The promise is that the work will be completed. It might take an entirely different course than what you thought, but God will complete His work for your life.
