God’s Promise

Psalm 138:8 The Eternal will finish what He started in me.  Your faithful love, O Eternal One, lasts forever; do not give up on what Your hands have made. (VOICE)

Whew!  I feel so unfinished today.  It seems like there’s not enough time in this life for me to feel like I’m making progress.

This verse is such a comfort because when God promises something, I can be assured that He will do it.

He’s got His hands full with me.  Sometimes I have to repeat the same lesson over and over and it still isn’t quite right.

But God never gives up on me.  He isn’t a harsh taskmaster standing over me with a ruler to thump my knuckles when I goof.  He’s a loving mentor, leading me by the hand.

Psalm 139:5 says, “You have surrounded me on every side, behind me and before me, and You have placed Your hand gently on my shoulder.”

That’s the kind of God we have.
