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!
