In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, 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.

Philippians 1:4-6

Sometimes it’s hard to find the motivation to do even necessary things. We rely on habit and muscle memory to get through some days. So then we can truly understand the great benefit we receive from having the Lord on our side! We ourselves may do a half-baked job from time to time but God never does.

Here’s the best part: we are not just working with him on the same project, we ourselves are one of God’s projects! If God has a plan for his church and the work he wants to complete in us, we can be confident that he will succeed!
