YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE PERFECT

According to your faith be it unto you. (Matthew 9:29)

 

“We need to acknowledge every good thing that is ours in Christ!” – Mark Hankins

 

The devil is good at pointing out your flaws. When you are confronted with your imperfections, don’t allow yourself to doubt your authenticity in Christ! I recently talked with a jeweler who said that all diamonds have a flaw somewhere that can be seen by the trained eye using a magnifying glass.  However, the fake diamonds, cubic zirconium, are flawless. They are man-made. They look like diamonds but they are much cheaper; they have only a fraction of the value of a real diamond. You are valuable to God. You are a real diamond, not a cubic zirconium! God sees you in Christ. He will keep working with you if you keep a spirit of faith and seek Him with all of your heart. You don’t have to be perfect to have a spirit of faith.

 

Confession: I have been made the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus! It is God who works in me both to will and to do of His good pleasure! I am valuable to God! (II Corinthians 5:21; Philippians 2:13)

    In all the Bible .. God chose the ones we would call misfits.
    He chose David he slew Goliath .. God chose Moses that stuttered
    God chooses each of us to do his work it’s not that he needs us because in his infinite wisdom he rules it all.
