FINISHING WELL (1) - GENESIS 1:31, 2:1-3

Everything that God starts He finishes. There is no abortion, abandonment or frustration with God. If He is your father and you are His offspring, your case must not be different. God wants you to take advantage of His power and nature to finish all that He orders you to start. What you start yourself without God may not withstand the oppositions of the devil but if God authors what you are doing, you will be able to finish it no matter the opposition from hell. 

There are two major enemies of finishing or completing well:

1. Abandonment 

This is where something is left uncompleted as a result of a person’s will or attitude. It is an internal thing. It could be as a result of unwholesome friends that break or alter the person’s focus on the project, laziness, complacency, lack of the sense of timing or not being mindful of the author and source or giver of the assignment – God. Where this happens, a person may treat it as something that occurred to him, which he is free to do or not do at any time. God can tell you to do things; He wants to get involved and order your life, even your private affairs if you allow Him.

If God leads you to start something, He wants it accomplished and not abandoned! But if God is not there, by mercy He can withdraw your drive and zeal for it. So, you should watch out for divine withdrawal of interest, passion and attention from a project or pursuit. Don’t confuse this with your own doing.

I want you to know that whatever God asks you to do, He has already made ready all you need to accomplish it, be it human element, money, opportunity, the health and even the devil. Everything you need to finish God’s mandate for you is ready before God brought the assignment your way. You can only harness these divine provisions by walking in obedience and taking yourself serious. 


Take some time to think over your life. Are there areas of abandonment not orchestrated by God? You should be ready to get back on the track and finish your God given purpose and vision. May the oil that empowers men to finish well mantle on you as you face a new day in Jesus’ name.

Prayer: Lord, I receive the anointing of a finisher resting on my life in Jesus name. Everything God authors through my hand and life, I receive divine drive and focus to finish it well in Jesus’ name. Amen.
