Not Finished Yet

God with all that I am, I’ll keep believing that You’re not finished yet.

Who is God to you?

Who you believe God is will determine what you believe God can do. Who do you believe He is? What do you believe He can do?

Saviour. Father. Restorer. Miracle Worker. Friend. Mountain Mover. Healer. The One Who Does Impossible. Counsellor. Redeemer. The Great I Am.

These things need to be at the forefront of our minds. As Tozer says, what we believe about God is the most important thing about us, and I’m realizing this more and more as I’m in this spiritual attack of the enemy.

The devil knows Scripture, and that’s why it’s important that we know it even better, because at times the devil will use Scripture against us. God has been unexpectedly placing people in my life to really speak into me and show me a variety of truths when I can’t see them or believe them myself. I’m so thankful for that.

My marriage failed. Satan has been whispering lies to me in light of that. You’re not good enough. Your husband didn’t want you. You’ll never be good enough. You’re a disappointment. You’re a failure.

There are moments when I start to believe what the enemy tries to whisper to me, but again, my worth is not situational. My identity is in Jesus Christ. Did the Lord want my husband to leave me? No (Malachi 2:16). Did He want my marriage to end? No (1 Corinthians 7:10-11).

Even though I’m in the worst season now, I am choosing to believe that God’s not finished with my story yet, and that somehow He’s writing something beautiful. A story of redemption. A story of restoration in the face on debilitating loss. I don’t know what it looks like. I don’t know how I’m going to get there. But I trust that He’s at work in my life.

My Father cares about what has been lost and stolen from me.

The enemy came to destroy but Jesus came so that I could walk in life abundant.

It’s true for you, too.

Ephesians 3:20 – Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever.

The reason we doubt God’s ability to do far more abundantly than “all that we could ask or think” is because we underestimate the power at work within us. The same power that raised Christ from the dead now indwells us by His presence and Sprit. Wow.

What are you believing for in your current season? Do you need God to do a mighty work in your life? I’m right there with you.

No matter what you’re walking through right now, no matter what your life looks like, I pray that you can position yourself in a posture of expectation. An expectation that He’s not finished yet. An expectation that He has called you to life abundant.

What’s next, Papa?

Praying a special blessing for you,
