Finish What You Started In Me

When I walk into the thick of trouble, keep me alive in the angry turmoil. With one hand strike my foes, With your other hand save me. Finish what you started in me, God. Your love is eternal—don’t quit on me now.

Psalm 138:8 MSG

The Lord will work out his plans for my life— for your faithful love, O Lord, endures forever. Don’t abandon me, for you made me.

Psalm 138:8 NLT

You will do everything you have promised; Lord, your love is eternal. Complete the work that you have begun.

Psalm 138:8 GNT

The Lord will fulfill his purpose for me; your steadfast love, O Lord, endures forever. Do not forsake the work of your hands.

Psalm 138:8 ESV

Only you can live your own journey in life though God has made the plans sketched out for them. He will fulfill the plans he has for you. It may take a while but they will be fulfilled in his timings. The lord will never leave or abandon you. For he created you by his own hands and has plans to prosper. His love endures forever

You will do everything you have promised; Lord, your love is eternal. Complete the work that you have begun.

Psalm 138:8 GNT

“Verse 8. The Lord will perfect that which concerneth me. All my interests are safe in Jehovah’s hands.

“The work which his goodness began,

The arm of his strength will complete;

His promise is yea and Amen,

And never was forfeited yet.”

God is concerned in all that concerns his servants. He will see to it that none of their precious things shall fail of completion; their life, their strength, their hopes, their graces, their pilgrimage, shall each and all be perfected. Jehovah himself will see to this and therefore it is most sure.

Thy mercy, O Lord, endureth for ever. The refrain of the former Psalm is in his ears, and he repeats it as his own personal conviction and consolation. The first clause of the verse is the assurance of faith, and this second one reaches to the full assurance of understanding. God’s work in us will abide unto perfection because God’s mercy towards us thus abideth.

Forsake not the works of thine own hands. Our confidence does not cause us to live without prayer, but encourages us to pray all more”
