Have a Plan and Finish It

And He said to them, "Go and tell that fox, 'Behold, I cast out demons, and perform cures today and tomorrow, and the third day, I finish my course.'"  Luke 13:32 ESV

Many obstacles frame our path every day. Being busy is one thing, but being busy without a goal to achieve is another. Many days, I’ve sat and wondered about my situation and my family’s future. But only when I rise up and take hold of the job at hand, do I ever accomplish my goal. There is a saying I learned a long time ago, “If you want to get something done, ask a busy person.” Over the years, I have seen that statement in action. Many people may say to you, “I’ll help,” but they never show up when it is actually time to work.

To a cowboy, multi-tasking is ridin’ and ropin.’ Christ’s work was finished on the cross. Death was defeated, and sin no longer rules our lives. The price was paid whether you accept it or not. The job for you to finish is to take His gift of salvation and put it to work in your life daily. As you finish this dance called life, you will be greeted by your heavenly Father who will say, “Your work is finished. Well done my good and faithful partner. Enter into my house and receive your rest.”

Find out what God’s plan is for you, and then finish it.
