Author and Finisher

Hebrews 12:1-2 AMP
1 Therefore then, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses [who have borne testimony to the Truth], let us strip off and throw aside every encumbrance (unnecessary weight) and that sin which so readily (deftly and cleverly) clings to and entangles us, and let us run with patient endurance and steady and active persistence the appointed course of the race that is set before us, 2 Looking away [from all that will distract] to Jesus, Who is the Leader and the Source of our faith [giving the first incentive for our belief] and is also its Finisher [bringing it to maturity and perfection]. He, for the joy [of obtaining the prize] that was set before Him, endured the cross, despising and ignoring the shame, and is now seated at the right hand of the throne of God.

Philippians 1:6 AMP
6 And I am convinced and sure of this very thing, that He Who began a good work in you will continue 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.

Psalm 40:1-2 AMP
1 I waited patiently and expectantly for the Lord; and He inclined to me and heard my cry. 2 He drew me up out of a horrible pit [a pit of tumult and of destruction], out of the miry clay (froth and slime), and set my feet upon a rock, steadying my steps and establishing my goings.


TODAY whatever you are facing, may you be reminded to fix your eyes on Jesus. Wait expectantly on Him and follow His lead. Jesus the Author and Finisher of your faith will establish you on firm ground!

Praise You Lord Jesus – You are able and faithful to finish what You start!


Lord Jesus, it’s so easy to become distracted, help me to keep my focus on You the Author and Finisher of my faith!

1 Thessalonians 5:23-24 AMP
23 And may the God of peace Himself sanctify you through and through [separate you from profane things, make you pure and wholly consecrated to God]; and may your spirit and soul and body be preserved sound and complete [and found] blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah). 24 Faithful is He Who is calling you [to Himself] and utterly trustworthy, and He will also do it [fulfill His call by hallowing and keeping you].

Lord, when I feel discouraged, help me to remember Jesus the Author and Finisher of my faith. Let my weakness turn my eyes from self to Christ. Help me to remember His faithfulness, He is more than able to finish what He began in me.


#ScripturePrayer LORD-When I am weak-Help me turn my eyes from self toChrist=>Faithful Author&Finisher of my faith!
