God will complete His purpose for me, Hallelujah- Amen.

Psalm 138:8 (ESV) says: “The Lord will fulfill His purpose for me; Your steadfast Love, O Lord, endures forever. Do not forsake the work of Your hands.”

This verse tells us that God has a purpose for our lives, and He will accomplish it. Because His love endures forever, we can trust that He will never abandon His work in our lives.

The first thing we should take away from Psalm 138:8 is the simple truth that God has a purpose.

“The Lord will fulfill His purpose for me.”

God is orchestrating the events in our lives according to His good plan. In fact, even before we were born, He knew all the days of our lives:

Your eyes saw me before I was put together. And all the days of my life were written in Your book before any of them came to be. ~ Psalm 139:16 NLV

God has a purpose for us that reaches beyond what we can imagine. Even if we dream up great things we can do in life, His purpose is greater. That’s because it’s His purpose, not ours, that will be accomplished. His purpose is bigger than ours, and it will stand firm no matter what happens to us.

Everything Is For His Glory

We get a glimpse of the all-encompassing purpose of God in these verses:

In Him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of Him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of His will, in order that we … might be for the praise of His glory. ~ Ephesians 1:11-12 NIV

Ultimately, His purpose is bigger than ours because it’s not about us, it’s about Him! He has chosen us to be a people to bring Him glory. Everything we do is ultimately for His glory.

So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God. ~ 1 Corinthians 10:31 NIV

God Fulfills His Purpose, Not Us

God knows how each of our individual lives will bring Him glory. Going back to Psalm 138:8, we see that He fulfills this purpose, not us.

The Lord will fulfill his purpose for me.”

God is intimately involved in our daily lives to accomplish His purpose. If every day is in His book, then His purpose must be very detailed! We don’t know everything that He has planned for us. But, we do know that He works out every little detail according to His plan, for His glory.

And we know that God works all things together for the good of those who love Him, who are called according to His purpose. ~ Romans 8:28 BSB

Also, there is another verse in the Psalms that says something similar to Psalm 138:8. Allow me to draw your attention to several different translations of this verse, Psalm 57:2:

I cry out to God Most High, to God who fulfills his purpose for me. (ESV)
I will cry unto God most high; unto God that performeth all things for me. (KJV)
I call to God Most High, to God, who completes his plans for me. (EHV)
I will cry to God Most High, To God who accomplishes all things for me. (NASB)
I cry out to God Most High, to the God who does everything for me. (NCV)

Isn’t it amazing? He completes his plans… He does everything… He accomplishes all things for me. Everything I have. Everything I am. Everything I’ve ever done—it’s all from God! He is the one who sustains me and gives me every moment’s breath

As Christians, we have been called to touch the lives of everyone around us. Think of salt. What does it do? It adds flavor and value to the food in which it’s placed. We have been placed in this world to make an impact for God, not to be ineffective like salt that loses its tastiness. Make sure that in every situation you are placed, you are adding value that will glorify God’s name.

And we pray:

Dear God, I ask that you help me be a person who adds value in any situation that I am found in. May I never strive to be ineffective. May my actions always point to You, Lord. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.

God Will Finish What He Started

What a good reason to give Him the praise, honor, and glory! His detailed involvement in our lives demonstrates His grace, Love, and goodness.
