The desire of God is that you finish the work He called you to do. You must be mindful of the need to complete your assignment. Everyone who completes their God-given assignment is an overcomer, and there is a throne of glory awaiting them. “To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne” (Revelation 3:21 KJV).
The Example of Jesus
Jesus completed His mission to earth. His last words on the cross were, “It is finished” (John 19:30). He left nothing undone that He was sent to do. The Father was so pleased with His performance that He gave Him a name that is above every name.
Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father (Philippians 2:9-11 KJV).
The Legacy of Paul
Paul the apostle finished his assignment on earth despite the great challenges that he encountered. He said, “I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith” (2 Timothy 4:7 KJV). No wonder he wrote most parts of the New Testament. Paul finished his mission despite the prison and chains he encountered. That is why I believe you and I have no excuse for failure. We must cultivate the sense of completion if we want to succeed.

Understanding the End from the Beginning
Whenever God is calling a man into an assignment, He often reveals the end, even when he has not started. The reason God always reveals the end from the beginning is to enable man to run his race to completion. The finish line for every man is different. That is the reason one cannot compare himself or herself with another. Your success will not be measured by another man’s standard; it will be measured by what you are created to finish.
Running the Race to Win
Jesus told them, “My food is doing the will of the one who sent me and completing his work” (John 4:34 ISV). Jesus had a consciousness of His finished line, and He moved towards it. In your journey, you are not merely attempting a race; you are running to win. If God has called you to create a business that will employ a thousand people and you end your life employing only five hundred, as far as God is concerned, you have fallen short of your assignment. The praise of men should not cloud the Creator’s perspective.
The apostle Paul wisely encouraged us with these words in 1 Corinthians 9:24 (KJV): “Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain.” Each one of us has a finish line that must be reached to receive commendation from God our creator. We must be conscious of this and run our race in order to finish it.
A Call to Action
You are in a race in which you are expected to win. You are not attempting a race; you are running to win. Whatever God has shown you about your future is attainable. Even if what you are seeing around you is discouraging, success is sure if you refuse to give up.
May this revelation stir your spirit to relentlessly pursue the fulfillment of your divine assignment. Remember, finishing strong is not an option but a divine mandate. As you press towards the mark, may God’s grace and strength be abundantly available to help you finish the work He has called you to do.
