Word for the day When God says ‘It is Finished”

18 Nov

John 19:30 (NKJV) When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.

Here is a life lesson from Jesus on the cross: the most important thing in your life is God’s will for your life; you are not finished until you can say, like Jesus, “it is finished.” I am at a place where I realize more than ever that I want to be in the will of the Lord! Where are you in life?

Jesus “gave up the ghost,” or died, according to his own time and pleasure. Unlike us, Jesus’ life was in his own hands. Yet, our Lord refused to depart this world until he had accomplished the purpose for which God had sent him. Jesus endured the cross and cruel mocking until his business here on earth was finished. What are you enduring in this season of your life?

The apostle Paul wanted to die. He even said “to die is gain.” But in the end he concluded that “to abide in the flesh (meaning to keep on living) is more needful” (Philippians’ 1:24). Why? Because God was not through with him yet. Paul knew that as long as God had him here at all, then he was here for a purpose. I wonder do you recognize that God has you here for a purpose?

Point to ponder- Whether young or old, rich or poor, happy or sad, the most important thing in your life is God’s will for your life; you are not finished until you can say, like Jesus, “it is finished.”
