New English Translation:
“For I am sure of this very thing, that the one who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.”( Philippians 1:6)
Contemporary English Version:
“God is the one who began this good work in you, and I am certain that he won't stop before it is complete on the day that Christ Jesus returns.”
Common English Bible:
“I’m sure about this: the one who started a good work in you will stay with you to complete the job by the day of Christ Jesus.”
Beloved, confidence means to be fully and firmly persuaded or convinced about someone or something. I am very confident, just like the Apostle in our text today ,that, the Lord, who has allowed us to see this year 2022 will make sure we see the end of it in peace, not in pieces. Have a trustful reliance on God, not in any man, money, health,etc because, all these things are changeable and can disappoint any moment. God has poured His grace on you, He doesn’t begin something and then abandon it, never! Why will He abandon it? Is it because He has no power to complete it, or because there are more enemies to be overcome than He had supposed; or because there are difficulties which He did not foresee, etc.He abandons nothing that He undertakes. So, be confident, certain, sure and convinced that He’s got your back.
