“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness” I John 1:9 ESV.
“And because of him you are in Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from God, righteousness and sanctification and redemption” 1 Corinthians 1:30, ESV.
We strive to be like Christ each day, but I can say I have yet to find perfection in myself. I have yet to find a perfect day. Even living a surrendered life, we have all yet to see a perfect life. Yet, I continue to find God’s mercy and grace pull me away from seeking perfection and keep my focus on doing what He called me to do.
Don’t allow a mess up to make you give up. You aren’t perfect, but don’t allow it to keep you from your perfect work. Jesus is your perfection. He knows all of you, and He still called all of you. In spite of what He’s working on in you, obey God and do what He called you to do.
Prayer: Father, I give You praise this morning. You are good! Help me to never allow a mess up to make me give up, or get me stuck. I allow Your new mercies and great grace to pull me out of a mistake. I’m moving forward. Jesus is my perfection. You are working on me, and I’m still going to do what you called me to do. In Jesus’ name, Amen!
