God is committed to me and my journey from mess to masterpiece. God is more committed to me than I am to myself. God will give me everything I need for my journey from mess to masterpiece. The journey is hard and sometimes I stay in the mess, but God wants to move me along. Discouragement comes when I think I am missing something I need.
Philippians 4:19 states:
And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.
It’s not finding the missing piece, but getting God’s perspective that I need.
God will meet all my needs, not all my desires; God will meet all of my needs, not all of my greeds.
Luke 11:13 states:
If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!”
I really don’t need what I think I need. What I think I need won’t meet my real need. What I really need has been given to me, but I am ignoring it.
God will always be with me in my journey from mess to masterpiece. He is always with me even if I don’t sense His presence.
1 Corinthians 3:16-17 states:
Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in your midst? If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy that person; for God’s temple is sacred, and you together are that temple.
God is always with me even if I don’t sense His presence. I’ll never get to the place where I outgrow God and I will always need him. God is always with me even if I ignore Him. God is always with me even when my journey is hard.
John 16:33 states:
I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.
God will complete His Work in me in my journey from mess to masterpiece. Masterpieces take time, especially mine. Somehow, we all think we are exceptions to the rule, but I am just a normal person and my journey takes time as does everyone else’s. God’s timing is perfect. My understanding of it is not.
Galatians 4:4a states:
But when the set time had fully come, God sent his Son
I don’t know God’s times, dates, and plans – only he does.
Acts 1:7 states:
He said to them: “It is not for you to know the times or dates the Father has set by his own authority.
Philippians 1:6 states:
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.
God’s goal is my eternal salvation not my temporary comfort.
Galatians 6:9 states:
Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.
