Under Construction

"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." Philippians 1:6 (AMP)

We live our lives day to day in a constant state of growth and change. Whether we realize it or not everyday we are changing from one place or phase of life to another. Progression or regression, growth or reversion. Life is defined by movement and it is constantly going somewhere. Either this is a place you desire to go or somewhere you rather not be, as you are living, there is movement happening in your life. As we experience the phases of life, why not experience betterment? The "good work" that Paul was describing in Philippians is the growth of your life, which is continuously "under construction".

God desires for us to be structures that are used for his glory. This is why he is constantly molding, shaping and building our lives into what he wants them to be. We are always a work in progress, reaching for the perfection in life that is only given by God. As we function in him, the movement of our lives causes us to be better and ultimately fulfill the purpose that he has for us to impact the world in which we live. As you consider your life and God's plan for it, consider yourself, "under construction" and allow God to continue to perfect his greatest work of all time: You.

Prayer: Lord, allow me to see the areas of my life where you are working. Help me to understand that I am a work in progress and you are performing a great work in my life at this very moment. I desire to live out your purpose for me and declare growth and progression as a part of my journey. Thank you in advance, Amen.
