I am far from perfect, except through the blood of Jesus, but let me tell you about my perfect God.
This is the thought that has been swirling around in my noggin over the past 24 hours or so. So many times I have told God that He had to be mistaken to use me in the ways in which He has, the ways in which He will, because of my failings. Some of you who read this may be feeling the same way right now. Alas, God is perfect, and He makes no mistakes. He knows what He is doing, why He is doing it, and what outcome will be produced.
What He desires from us is a willing heart.
I do not put on airs when I say that I want all people to come to the saving knowledge of Christ. That I believe with all my being that there is one supreme God who gave the world a Son, Jesus, in which mankind could be saved, and that His Spirit is present in this age, resting within those who call Him Abba Father, governing towards the Creator’s will. That there is a place called heaven and a place called hell. One will be so splendid, no person can actually describe and comprehend its beauty, where as the other is going to be complete separation from God which no person has ever experienced except Jesus Christ himself, as He took His final breathes upon the cross.
May we not look to the downfalls of “I”, but focus on the “I AM”, that is our message.
And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.
He is the Rock, his works are perfect, and all his ways are just. A faithful God who does no wrong, upright and just is he.
As for God, his way is perfect: The LORD's word is flawless; he shields all who take refuge in him. Psalm 18:30
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. John 14:16
"I am the Alpha and the Omega," says the Lord God, "who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty."
