“I am the Alpha and the Omega—the beginning and the end,” says the Lord God. “I am the one who is, who always was, and who is still to come—the Almighty One.” - Revelation 1:8

Scriptures say in Proverbs 23:18 that "surely there is an end; and thine expectation shall not be cut off." Which means there is always an end to a beginning. No matter how long the end lingers, "surely there is an end..." It is certain and nothing can change it. Jeremiah 29:11 says: "for I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end." God promises to give us the end that we are anticipating. It will definitely come.

But what end am I referring to? In Romans 8:18 scriptures say: "for I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us." The end is where glory is. At the end of every race, there is a winner's prize or medal that is given. No wonder Apostle Paul said "I press toward the mark for the PRIZE of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus" (Philippians 3:18). The end of the work God has began in your life is full of glory and celebration. There is a prize waiting for you at the end. This is why you must allow the Beginning and the End finish His work. If not you will miss out on the prize.

Some folks are impatient. They want the end to come as soon as the beginning starts. While some take their eyes from the Lord when there is delay they did not anticipate. But scriptures advice us to look "unto Jesus the author (beginning) and finisher (end) of our faith..." (Hebrews 12:2). Keep your focus on Jesus, don't take your eyes off Him, like Peter did, which made him began to sink. The Lord will complete and perfect His work in your life, and I can assure you that it's going to be a glorious ending. You are going to celebrate the prize at the end.

Keep winning daily.

Prayer:

Dear Lord, thank You for I am assured of a glorious ending, as long as I keep my gaze on You. Thank You for Your good thoughts of blessings and victory at the end of Your work in my life. Be praise, oh Lord, in Jesus' Name. Amen.
