He Can Perform Powerfully in You until Complete

Perform It

God is able to perform a wonderful transformation in us. God is the first and the last, the Alpha and Omega, and because He has always existed and will always exist, when He says as the Creator that He will finish what He has begun in us, we can trust Him to perform His divine will in us until we reflect His amazing image.

“And I am convinced and sure of this very thing, that He Who began a good work in you will continue [perform it] until the day of Jesus Christ [right up to the time of His return], developing [that good work] and perfecting and bringing it to full completion in you.” ~Philippians 1:6 AMPC

God always performs what He promises. We can trust Him because He is Faithful and True. As our Good Shepherd, He leads us ‘in green pastures, beside still waters, and in paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.’’ God is faithful to “walk with us through the valley of the shadow of death, to guide and comfort us, feed us and protect us from our enemies. He blesses us with goodness, mercy and lovingkindness and we will dwell in His holy Presence forever.”1

“Faithful and absolutely trustworthy is He who is calling you [to Himself for your salvation], and He will do it [perform it; He will fulfill His call by making you holy, guarding you, watching over you, and protecting you as His own].’” ~1 Thessalonians 5:24 AMP

Because we trust in Who God is and believe He is able to perform what He has promised to do in and through us, we experience the power of delighting in Him and Him delighting in us.

 “Yet, looking to the promise of God, he didn’t waver through unbelief, but grew strong through faith, giving glory to God, and being fully assured that what He had promised, He was also able to perform.” ~Romans 4:20-21 WEB

Lord, we choose to believe what You say about us.

  1. I love that you included this song with your post. It is so fitting to remember our identity is what God says of us and not what our performance says. I’m visiting from FMF. Great post!

  2. I am so grateful for the way God works in each of our lives. It is astounding when we think about His faithfulness from start to finish, fulfilling all He has purposed for us since before the foundations of the world.

  3. In the valley of the shadow,
    in the endless-seeming night
    when the good dreams all lie fallow
    and you think there really might
    be no hope for a tomorrow,
    no chance left that you can take,
    turn around and face the sorrow,
    let it hit you, and then break
    upon the great Rock that protects you,
    Rock of Ages, from the song.
    When you’ve done that which you can do,
    hide in Him, for you belong
    not to night, but to the morning
    that is even now a-borning.

  4. I’m so thankful for God’s faithfulness in my life, Lisa. He will perform all He promised concerning me-presenting me faultless before the Throne.

  5. Lisa, Phil. 1:6 has been a favorite verse of mine for as long as I can remember. Such a comfort to hold on to this promise for ourselves and our loved ones. This was a timely post for me to read this morning.
