Best Verse: Psalm 57:2 “I will cry to God Most High, to God who accomplishes all things for me.”


Did I just make that word up? Accomplisher?  What else would you call someone who accomplishes something? That’s what God does.  He accomplishes all things for us.  But what exactly does that mean?  The Hebrew word for “accomplishes” is gamar.  Interestingly enough, this word ONLY occurs in the book of Psalms. It means to complete or bring to an end.

So, God is our completer.  He finishes stuff.  He brings it to its finality.  Do you understand that?  We don’t have to do it.  He does. He does what we cannot do.  He is with us to the end to ensure things are finished.


What a great verse for our children! Children are notorious for starting stuff and not finishing.  The next time you see a half- finished project your little Susie started, use that opportunity to talk about this verse.  In fact, look at all five times this word is used (Psalms 7:9; 12:1; 57:2; 77:8; 138:8). 

Let them see how God finishes things. If we are to be like God in our lifestyle, then we should be accomplishers too.  We should complete things.  We should finish things.  Projects are one thing, but we should make sure we complete things as they relate to others.  We want to represent Christ well.

If you have the habit of starting and not finishing something, it can give you a bad reputation among your friends and coworkers.  No one wants to have to come behind you and finish what you started.  Be like God.  Complete things.  Finish things.  And as you accomplish that next task, give God all the credit.  Thank Him for the wisdom to be like Him.

O Great Finisher, give me the tenacity to finish what I start. Help me represent You well.  I want to be known as someone who is dependable and loyal, even to the very end.
