By Susie Teramura

Before a word is on my tongue you, Lord, know it completely.

 

He calms me completely,

He replied, “You of little faith, why are you so afraid?” Then he got up and rebuked the winds and the waves, and it was completely calm

 

Restores me completely.

Then he said to the man, “Stretch out your hand.” So he stretched it out and it was completely restored, just as sound as the other.

 

He heals me completely.

By faith in the name of Jesus, this man whom you see and know was made strong. It is Jesus’ name and the faith that comes through him that has completely healed him, as you can all see.

 

He saves me completely,

 

Hebrews 7:25

Therefore he is able to save completely those who come to God through him, because he always lives to intercede for them.

 

Giving himself for me completely,

 

Colossians 1:21-23

But now, by giving himself completely at the Cross, actually dying for you, Christ brought you over to God’s side and put your lives together, whole and holy in his presence.

 

Erasing my sins completely,

 

Acts 3:19

So repent [change your inner self—your old way of thinking, regret past sins] and return [to God—seek His purpose for your life], so that your sins may be wiped away [blotted out, completely erased], so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord [restoring you like a cool wind on a hot day];

 

Letting them go and burying them completely.

So I will trust in Him completely,

But to the one who does not work [that is, the one who does not try to earn his salvation by doing good], but believes and completely trusts in Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is credited to him as righteousness (right standing with God).

 

Because He is completely reliable,

 

2 Peter 1:19

We also have the prophetic message as something completely reliable, and you will do well to pay attention to it, as to a light shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts.

And completely dependable,

 

1 Thessalonians 5:23-24

The one who called you is completely dependable. If he said it, he’ll do it!

 

And completely holy.

He supports,

For the eyes of the Lord move to and fro throughout the earth so that He may support those whose heart is completely His.

 

And protects me completely.

He will cover you and completely protect you with His pinions, And under His wings you will find refuge; His faithfulness is a shield and a wall.

I am completely changed,

 

1 Corinthians 15:52

in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at [the sound of] the last trumpet call. For a trumpet will sound, and the dead [who believed in Christ] will be raised imperishable, and we will be [completely] changed [wondrously transformed].

 

Completely filled with God himself,

 

Ephesians 3:19

and [that you may come] to know [practically, through personal experience] the love of Christ which far surpasses [mere] knowledge [without experience], that you may be filled up [throughout your being] to all the fullness of God [so that you may have the richest experience of God’s presence in your lives, completely filled and flooded with God Himself].

 

Re-fashioned.

who, by exerting that power which enables Him even to subject everything to Himself, will [not only] transform [but completely refashion] our earthly bodies so that they will be like His glorious resurrected body.

 

 

He finishes His work completely.

 

John 4:34

Jesus said to them, “My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me and to completely finish His work.

 

He completely amazes me.

 

Mark 1:22

They were completely amazed at His teaching; because He was teaching them as one having [God-given] authority, and not as the scribes

  1. Its so good to meditate on the “completely” – so much we/I think that there are parts/something not covered, not done, etc.

  2. Susie,
    What a brilliant post! I love all the ways you’ve described God’s attributes and given us scriptures to ponder on how does it all completely. He leaves nothing undone, no stone uncovered, and attends to all the details — and delights to show us his work. So glad you offered us all these verses to ponder on just word!

    1. Hi Valerie – It’s so good to think on isn’t it?! I read something this week about trusting God completely and that made me think how hard that is for me- but how different things would be if I did! 🙂 xoxo

  3. What a good word and verses to focus on, Susie! It’s so amazing that His work for us and within us and His love and care over us is so complete. Thank you for this comforting message. I also love the patchwork artwork. 🙂 Blessings and hugs to you!

  4. Hi Trudi! 🙂 It is comforting to think about how much he cares for us- That he doesnt cut corners but does things well and complete- Blessings and hugs back to you! 🙂
