“And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns. (Philippians 1:6 NLT)”
God is worker that finishes what He starts.
He does not tire with time.
He is not dissuaded by set backs.
He does not give up in the face of rejection or shy away in the face of shame.
It is not because he feels nothing or because he is feels nothing.
He paused in the face of unimaginable pain and asked for a way out. But there was no other way to pay for sin except for the cross.
There was no other way to redeem mankind to God except to fully pay sin’s price so he could fully offer salvation.
The same God that did not give up in the face of such great pain, will not give up on those who live steeped in sin’s shackles.
He will not leave you to your brokenness, your destructive habits, or the shackles of shame. He will work, remind, call out and challenge sin. He will give not give up on you.
He will not override free will but he will pursue you with passion nonetheless.
“Where is there an instance of God’s beginning any work and leaving it incomplete? Show me for once a world abandoned and thrown aside half formed; show me a universe cast off from the Great Potter’s wheel, with the design in outline, the clay half hardened, and the form unshapely from incompleteness.”
– C. Spurgeon
It might feel like things are too broken to be fixed.
To God there is no such thing.
