"The Anointing To Finish"
As I looked at the meaning of the number (7) I found that one of the main definitions is "completion, to finish, to bring to accomplishment, to bring to a goal, the final stage in a process of development and to make perfect".
As I thought about it, I began to see how the Holy Spirit has been leading me recently to finish many things in my life that have been started, but never seem to be completed. We are living in a time when we must finish what has been assigned to us by the Lord. As the Holy Spirit continues to help us in our process of development, he will compel us to finish. All of us have a purpose in the Kingdom of God, but we must be diligent to identify and fulfill our purpose. Lives will be affected by our moving into the place of perfection and completion.

Let us all persevere and finish the work. God is calling a people with an "sent ones" mentality. John 5:36(b) says: For the very work that the Father has given me to finish, and which I am doing, testifies that the Father has sent me. Apostle Paul said it this way...However, I consider my life worth nothing to me, if only I may finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me-the task of testifying to the gospel of God's grace. Acts 20:24 Selah...
