In the journey of life, it is not enough to start out on the right footing; it matters even more to complete what you have started and to finish well. The scriptures establish that that the end of a thing is better than the beginning thereof (Ecclesiastes 7:8). Our scriptural text today, records a sad account of King Solomon,
who having started with a perfect heart towards God, eventually succumbed to pressure and departed from the living God to his own detriment.
This is a great lesson to us today. Some believers are passionate about the things of God only when they are in need.
However, they quickly get distracted and are unable to sustain their commitment to the things of God, when they experience a breakthrough. This breaks the Father’s heart. God is bigger than any blessing or breakthrough you will ever receive. In fact, He is the Source of every good and perfect gift, as such, your commitment must be to Him and not His gifts.
So, in working towards your desired goals this year, let nothing deter your focus from pleasing God and seeking him the more. Do not abandon your projects or your commitment half way through. Jesus revealed that the
man who places his hands on the plough and looks back is not fit for the kingdom of God (Luke 9:62). So,
resolve to stay focused and you will finish well! Halleluyah!
