"For I am certain of this very thing, that He by whom the good work was started in you will make it complete till the day of Jesus Christ" Philippians 1 vs 6.
Here is a good verse that should help someone understand that the God we worship is not the one to take you halfway. He can only take you all the way to the very end where you intend to be.
Regardless of what you are going through, always know that He who started something in you will give you the means to complete it. It may seem a farfetched dream but it will surely prove to be a good ambition after all. You could be failing to pay school fees or to properly look after your family, just know that He who began a good work in you will make it complete. If your business is failing or your marriage is falling apart, have faith that the Lord will see you through the hardship.
One musician sang that do not give up on the Lord because he will never give up on you as He is able to do just what He says He shall do. If you want a miracle in your life have faith in God; speak positive and with boldness and also with confidence. Say the Lord which hath begun a good work in me - business idea, university, dreams, marriage and career - will perform. Have faith in God and believe in Him in all your situations.

How will a mere man, in all his sinful nature, be able to please a holy, omnipotent and omnipresent supreme being? The Bible says it is impossible to please God without faith. Do not ever tell God how big your situation is but tell your situation how big God is. Do not let the whole lot know that you are struggling but walk tall with your head high, shoulders up saying you are a child of God.
We do not lack because the Lord is our shepherd and provider as David sings is that famous psalm of his, ‘The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.’ He shall supply our needs according to his riches and glory, and in his endless wisdom. Let us make it our habit to speak positive words!
Christians do not say ‘zvakaoma, zvakadzvanya, ndiri pamahwani, mazino’. Instead, they say ‘all is well, zvakarongeka’. Always know that He who began a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ. Regardless of the difficulty of the situation you could be facing, just say it in your heart that you have a mighty God before whose presence everything and everyone crumbles to nothingness.
If you do such kind of a prayer with absolute faith in your heart and believing that He is able, you would surely be saved, and all things will start falling into line with opportunities emerging before you. It is true that help is never far from us but we ourselves tend to often be far from help due to our minds and hearts that lack real faith.
We are Kings and Priests
"And have made them a kingdom and priests to our God, and they are ruling on the earth" Revelations 5 vs 10.
A king rules and as Christians, we must know the power we wield over the world and everything that happens in it. As priests, the duty that is expected of us is to intercede on behalf of our neighbours; praying for our families, parents, relatives, country and others.
We are being told here that He has made us kings and priests; meaning here on earth meaning we are the chosen children of the high God. Kings and priests are known to be respected leaders whose word is listened to and that is a privilege which God has put upon us. Everything, therefore, should be at our service. Romans 5 vs 17b says reign like a king in life.
If you do not read the Bible, you cannot understand this good privilege that God has bestowed upon us. We are suffering due to this lack of knowledge and we are perishing due to this dearth of knowledge just as the Lord laments that my people are perishing due to lack of knowledge. We must therefore be Christians that know the word of the Lord and we must be able to meditate on it.
Joshua 1 vs 8 says this book of law shall not depart from your mouth but you shall meditate on it day and night. If we do not meditate on it, we would never know the power and the authority we have. As kings, we just speak a word and things will happen. As Christians we must know the power and authority we were given.
