A Hunger to Finish
“In the mean while his disciples prayed him, saying, Master, eat. Jesus saith unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work.” John 4:31 & 34, NKJV.
Jesus was hungry for the will of God and to finish His work, that he deemed it more vital than food itself. It was his meat. His life’s focus was upon the will of God being completed. Now is the time to hunger for His will.
Are you a man that’s hungry to finish? Is your high calling your highest goal? Show me a hungry person, and I’ll show you a champion. Be determined not only to start, but to cross that finish line before you. Do not be satisfied with just doing God’s will, but also finishing God’s work that He has given you. You have a job to do. You are on an assignment by God. It should drive you and fulfill you more than spending your time doing anything else. As God causes you to see the reward, the great joy, the blessings and being a blessing in front of you, you’ll get excited. Nothing satisfies like accomplishing His will.
Prayer: Father, thank You for choosing me and giving me purpose. I am honored and humbled You have called me to a work. Reveal it even more to me. I ask for a greater hunger to not only start, but finish. Help me be centered and focused on finishing. Like Jesus, my meat is to do my Father’s will and to finish this good work in my hands. I thank God for the grace, the wisdom, and the counsel to do it. I receive the strength, joy and courage to finish. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
