What does this statement mean to you? You know Who God is? The “I AM THAT I AM”. Praise His Holy Name! But let’s see what “work in progress” means in the context of this statement. The “work” here denotes what God is doing (aka God which worketh) in the Believer and the “in progress” here describes how this work is developing in the Believer.
It could read this way –
God (by His Holy Spirit) is laboring continuously (in us).
“For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.” (Phillippians 2:13 (KJV)
But, there is yet another way we can interpret this statement.
The “Work” (aka “his workmanship”) here is the Believer and “in progress” is what the Believer is doing as a show of the inward workings of what God is doing.
It could read this way –God’s children going forth, achieving, advancing, abounding
“ . . . We are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.” (Ephesians 2:10 – KJV)
Jesus Christ is Lord and King
FLOW IN THE PURPOSES OF GOD
God has given everyone a purpose to fulfill for His glory.
To edify and build up every man, woman, boy and girl with His-story.
Don’t neglect your calling today.
God wants to use you day-by-day.
Don’t give up when people reject you as if you are worthless treasure;
Just remember you are serving and pleasing God, and He will bless and promote you beyond measure.

YOU MUST HAVE A VISION
“My people are destroyed for a lack of knowledge, and where there is no vision, the people perish.” (Proverbs 29:18 – KJV)
The Hebrew word for vision is “Khaw-zone” which means a mental sight, which can be in the form of a dream or revelation.
Before you start a ministry or business, you must seek God for the “VISION”. He will reveal to you what He wants you to do. Once God reveals this to you, then it is important to seek God as to how He wants you to carry out the “VISION”.
For example, God may reveal to you that He wants you to open a Bakery and sell baked goods such as danishes, cakes, and pies using all natural ingredients. You may wonder, well “How am I going to do this, and who will help me.”
God can reveal to you the best ways of marketing and promoting your baked goods, and connect you to the right people who can help you get all of your ingredients and equipment at a wholesale price; help you register your business and set it up legally.
Once you have sought God for your divine purpose, then He will prepare you, guide you, and carry you through.
You must exercise faith at all times. You must believe, rely, and have confidence in the Lord Jesus Christ; in the Word of God; and the promises of God.
