He Will Do It

“The one who calls you is faithful, and he will do it.” [1 Thessalonians 5:24 NIV]

I have seen and heard this Scripture around my home church for years and yet, this week it has been renewed upon my mind. Last week I talked about how we can only live out our calling in God’s perfect time, not in our own strength. This week, it seems befitting to encourage that it will come to pass, even when time seems to stretch out before us with little change.

Once God has given the call, handed over the vision and dream, He does not take it back again. Even if we make huge mistakes in trying, much like Moses did, and though we might wander in the proverbial ‘desert’ for what seems an eternity, God will bring us back to the fulfilment of the promise.

That’s one of the great things about our God. He is faithful. You can depend on His word. But again, it doesn’t happen in our own time or strength. Like the verse above says: He will do it. So, in that promise we can rest and enjoy the journey. We don’t need to strive or strain to reach the goals He puts in our hearts. We just have to walk in obedience to Him and loving Him, and He will make it happen when the time is right.

Isn’t God awesome?!
