Caution: Road Work Ahead

“Being confident of this very thing, that He which hath begun
a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.”

Philippians 1:6

Recently this Fall we left the Smoky Mountains headed toward Cherokee, North Carolina, and just a short distance out of Gatlinburg we saw road signs warning us of what was ahead, the largest flashing an importance message:

CAUTION: ROAD WORK AHEAD POSSIBLE DELAYS

We proceeded with caution and enjoyed the ride and fall scenery of the Smoky Mountains without problems. As we drove, I was immediately reminded of this verse in Philippians. Paul told the Philippian church that he was confident, persuaded beyond any doubt that because God had begun a good work in them, God would continue and finish it. In other words, God wasn’t done with them yet.

 Too many times in our lives we let temporary setbacks determine where we end up. You might have been disappointed in a relationship, or the job you didn’t get, or something else. Those are the times of ‘Caution: Road Work Ahead’, and many times our forward progress seems delayed.

But take heart, because no matter what the delay or road work in your way, God is still working His plan in your life, and He’ll see you safely through. Don’t give up. He hasn’t given up on you, nor will He! The best is yet to come!
