Finish Strong

Jude 1, King James Version (KJV)

24 Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,

25 To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.

Ephesians 3:17-21, KJV

17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,

18 May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;

19 And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fullness of God.

20 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,

21 Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen

Believers fall into two categories, as we take time to reflect on the scriptures concerning the promises of God and what He has stated He will do in our lives.

Either God has blessed us so much this year that you think He has completed His blessings for your life. Or you are wondering, Lord, when are you going to bless me? When are you going to fix this situation in my life? 


Today’s meditation moment will serve two purposes,

1. Clarification of who you are in Him and the destiny He has for your life.

2. Reminder as to whom God is in your life.


I need you to get the most impossible thing in your mind, it could be forgiving someone, advancement in your career, finishing your education, you may want to get married—whatever seems so impossible to you, your uncontrollable emotions, your continues setbacks—turn it over to God because He is able.


Now in Jude 24 refers to this present time, meaning while we are feeling like this is not going to work out, while we are feeling like this is over, God is saying, give it over to Me now, and watch my power work this situation out for you, watch my glory and how it will be revealed in your life. Watch my power overtake you, and set you up for success. Watch me use you for the Glory. . . . Now . . .


Now unto Him who is Able, meaning is as follows—having the power, skill, money, and so forth, that is needed to do something, not prevented from doing something: having the freedom or opportunity to do something, having the wisdom to achieve something. 

We are putting limits on God in our minds and in our hearts, and God is requiring us to take the limits off Him.


1. Don’t rest on what God HAS DONE for you this far—I have not finished opening the doors for you.


2. There is more In store.


Some of you may be sitting here right now wondering, when is it going to be my turn, Lord—I dare you to let it go, and Let God handle it.  As soon as you do, I promise you He is going to fix it for you . . .


The question you need to ask yourself, “Am I really ready to experience the glory and majesty in Jude 25 . . .

If you are then this scripture is for you . . .

1 Peter 5:10, King James Version (KJV)

10 But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish , strengthen, settle you.

No one can restore you like God can, No one can establish you like God can,

No one can strengthen you like God can, No one can support you like God can.

If you are a fitness person, a runner, a basketball player, any type of athlete, you know the best part of your workout is not in the beginning but when you are nearing the end of your workout. Today I want you to understand how important it is for you to trust God and allow Him to Finish Strong in your life.
