God Has a Job to Finish on You

I saw a lapel button with these letters on it: PBPGINFWMY which stand for “Please Be Patient, God Is Not Finished With Me Yet.”

Jesus gathered His followers on a mountain side and shared with them transforming truths that He can use to continue the task of finishing us. Fortunately those truths have been overheard by the world. They are each noted here with a brief insight:

“Those who are poor in spirit,” those who are mentally humble, devoid of improper pride will be blessed.

“Those who are meek,” those who yield their possessions and self to God without greed will be blessed.

“Those who are merciful,” those who forgive, abandon bitterness and give love will be blessed.

“Those pure in heart,” those whose drives are controlled by God, and who remain morally pure will be blessed.

“Those who are peacemakers,” those who seek to make things right, and refrain from improperly condemning others, will be blessed.

“Those who spiritually hunger and thirst,” those who have a wholesome spiritual appetite, without inconsistencies will be blessed.

“Those who mourn,” that is those who are grieved by what grieves God, and avoid callousness, will be blessed.

“Those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake,” those who stand with Him, free from compromise, will be blessed.

Post those on the walls of your memory, and daily measure His progress of finishing you by them. (Based on Matthew 5)

“Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.”

It is the wise and faithful who regularly accept His invitation. He awaits our request for solving a physical or physical challenge.

When you have to take a challenge when the mandate is, “Thus, saith majority,” call on Him.

When exhausted by a physical task and seeing no solution, call on Him.

Don’t wait until the challenge is great. Stay in touch with Him so you can say, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13 

You can be sure He will work with you in doing all worthy things.
