Who said your case is over and finished? It cannot be over until God is done with you or YOU say it is over. The problem is that many people give up when God is still at work with them. Beauty and glory will not be seen on you if you quit before God is finished with you. This article emphasizes the essence of Easter-the finished work of Christ
So when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, "It is finished!" And bowing His head, He gave up His spirit - John 19:30 (NKJV)
And when I saw Him, I fell at His feet as dead. But He laid His right hand on me, saying to me, "Do not be afraid; I am the First and the Last. I am He who lives, and was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore. Amen. And I have the keys of Hades and of Death - Revelations 1:17-18 (NKJV)
Being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ - Philippians 1:6 (NKJV)
If you are short of glory and beauty in your life, then God is not done with you. The doctors, society, family and friends may call your case a closed one, but if God says it is not over yet and you dare to believe Him, I tell you, you are the next to share a testimony.
Easter celebration is the time to remember and celebrate the finished work of Christ on the cross: His victory over the enemy. He is risen, alive forevermore and has the keys of hell and death to set free anyone who believes in Him. He says, you should not be afraid of that challenge because He was before it and will still be after the challenge is no more.
On the cross, Jesus declared, "it is finished!" It is finished with that challenge! Therefore, until that declaration is fulfilled in your life, God is not done with you yet. The good news is that the resurrection power of Christ is available to have it fulfilled in your life. So, tap into it and receive your beauty and glory.
You may be at the sandpapering stage, not funny, I agree but you will soon radiate beauty. Joseph went through a couple of stages that were not palatable. And when he interpreted the king's butler's dream, he thought, it was over finally but the butler forgot Him. But God was not done with him. When God finished, Joseph didn't only get a release from the prison, he also got a throne.
Furthermore, God does not start a thing and then abandon it later. No, what He starts He surely will finish if you believe Him till the end. Therefore, that good work that He started in you, you need to be rest assured that He will complete it - Philippians 1:6. God is not done with you, don't mind the negative things you see or hear! Delay is not denial.
Therefore, in this season of Easter celebration, look at that challenge and laugh at it because it will soon be finished and your glory will be seen. When God is done with you, you will become a masterpiece to behold. HAPPY EASTER CELEBRATION!
