You are a blessed child of God! Stop and let the truth of that truth sink in for just a moment. We spend so much of the energy of our lives trying to prove ourselves, when we really have nothing to prove. We buy into the definition of success provided by the world, allow our egos to start calling the shots and before we know it, we find ourselves riding a runaway roller coaster to nowhere.
We convince ourselves that some how our being incomplete points to some kind of deficiency or lack on our part and there surely must be something wrong with us that needs fixing. We read books, take medicine, chase after goals and do any and everything we can think of to try and make up for what we have been convinced is missing.
We very quickly lose site of the reality that we are children of God and because we are God’s children we lack nothing. We lack nothing, because it is all His and through His love, we have access to it all. You are a complete, whole and blessed spiritual being, made in the image of the One who created you and empowered with His supernatural power.
“Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.” -James 1:2-4
You do not need to be made perfect, you are perfect. You just need to learn to live in the perfection you were created in and for. You cannot add to God’s perfection, and any attempt to do so, is to take away, taint and diminish the purity of God’s radiant love. So stop trying to be something you are not, accept your life as it is with all it’s challenges and grow through them into the complete perfection you were created for. When you do this your life will give glory to God and enable you to experience and share His blessings…
You are an amazing creation of God! You were created to be light and love in what is often a dark and fearful world. Stop for a moment and allow that thought to sink in. You do not need to add anything or take anything away from yourself, just live in the fact and reality of who you are created to be.
You are not becoming perfect, you were created as perfect and are in a process of rediscovering your perfection. Yes, we make mistakes, commit sin and miss the mark while we are living in this flesh, but our Spirit is pure and so as we forgive others, we should also forgive ourselves and learn from our failures and mistakes.
The Scriptures Teach Us… “9 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.” -2 Corinthians 12:9
Stop beating up on yourself by getting caught up in a never ending barrage of thoughts that seek to undermine who you really are and what you were created to accomplish. Our mistakes are a betrayal of self, the true self we were created to be, not the false self that our egos have manipulated.
You are the perfect child of the most holy and loving God and should celebrate this amazing reality every moment of everyday. This human experience is a gift to be enjoyed. Our growth is God’s reward for being able to see past the limits of the flesh, so that we might tap into the infinity of our Spirit.
Embrace who God made you to be, learn from your challenges and enjoy living this amazing human experience.
You read that right! You are not perfect and you do not have to be! We waste a lot of energy trying to be something that we are not. We waste a lot of time pretending to be something that we are not. The truth, if we will admit it is simply this: We are not perfect and we are probably not going to be any time soon!
Here’s the important question: Who said you had to be perfect anyway? Let me show you from the Scripture why imperfection is an invitation for God to come in and do what you can’t! 2 Corinthians 12:9 says: He said to me “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.
Really Good News! Is that not some of the most awesome news you have ever heard? We don’t need perfection, We need GRACE and that is exactly what God has for us – and His grace is sufficient (all that we need and then some!)
The next part of the verse is really amazing! “His power is made perfect in weakness!” If I am perfect, then I am not weak. If I am not weak, then His power cannot be made perfect in me, because His power is made perfect in weakness. My not being perfect allows God’s power to come into my life and grow to perfection.
Don’t Play The Game! Stop trying to be what you are not! Stop pretending that you are something that you are not and instead admit your weakness, mess ups, sins, failures, mistakes and allow the power of God to grow in and through your honest life!
You Can Get This! Figure this one out and it will bring you to a place of amazing freedom! I hope you get it! God Bless, Press On and Give God Glory!
