“The Lord GOD is my strength [my source of courage, my invincible army]; He has made my feet [steady and sure] like hinds’ feet and makes me walk [forward with spiritual confidence] on my high places [of challenge and responsibility]” Habakkuk 3:19, Amplified.
Jesus is your perfection. He is your righteousness. If you have to say this a million times to yourself, then do it. Knowing that Jesus is your perfection removes every excuse for staying where you are. It also removes all of the unfair demands you’ve placed on yourself and others to be perfect. You might feel as though your weaknesses are glaring and are on full exhibition out in front of you for all to see. Remain hidden in Christ and God will cover you. He will cover you so well to where even with your shortcomings, all people will see is the light of the Lord shining through you.
Let’s make it our business to put on Christ every single day. Let’s not let our issues get the best of us. Let’s keep moving forward in Christ receiving God’s grace. God will continue to remove what’s not like Him, and make us more and more into the image of His Son. Let’s keep putting on Christ, forgetting those things that are behind and pressing towards what’s ahead. Let’s keep letting God tweak us and adjust us. Let’s put on the new man and recognize it’s not us. It’s Jesus! He is our perfection!
Talk to Him today…
Father God, I thank you for speaking to me so plainly. Thank you that I’m not alone in this. Along with my sisters in Christ all over this world, I put on Christ right now. I put on the new man right now. I choose to keep moving forward while you work on the areas in my life that don’t please you. I won’t stop pressing. I won’t stop yielding. I won’t let my issues hinder my progress in you. Jesus has been made unto me wisdom, righteousness, sanctification and redemption. Thank you Lord! Help me to stay hidden in Christ. I give it all to you. You love me so very much, and I love you too. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
