“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.
Say this with me, “Jesus is my perfection. Jesus is my righteousness.”
Knowing that Jesus is your perfection removes the unfair demands you’ve placed on yourself and others to be perfect. Maybe you’ve been letting your issues get the best of you. You’ve been striving to be everything you should be, but as long as you are in this world, you will be imperfect needing God’s grace and mercy. So lighten up on yourself. Keep putting on Christ and understand Jesus is your perfection!
Talk to God with me…
Father God, I thank you for speaking to my heart. Forgive me for any unrealistic demands of perfection I’ve placed on myself or others. Thank you for reminding that Jesus is my perfection. 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. Jesus has been made unto me wisdom, righteousness, sanctification and redemption. Thank you, Lord! In Jesus’ name, Amen.
