Perfection is the condition, state or quality of being free or as free as possible from all flaws or defects according to Webster’s Dictionary. It also states that perfection is the action or process of improving something until it is faultless or as faultless as possible. We all strive for perfection. We want to be shaped and molded into God’s image as much as we possibly can. That’s great; however, we sometimes allow perfection to overrride our freedom. We have been taught for years that in order for us to be kingdom builders or kingdom worshippers we have to be perfect. I hear so many people say all of the time that ” I’m just not ready yet”. I still smoke, I still drink, I still like to party etc. Well I’m here to encourage you on today. It is humanly impossible to deliver yourself. God is the only way for us to be completely free from sin. It is through your relationship with him and your worship where you will find complete deliverance from anything that you may do, say or feel that is not pleasing in his sight. I’m not telling you what I heard, I’m telling you what I’ve experienced in the last few weeks.
One evening I was standing in my bathroom after a long hard day of work. I was so tired, physically and mentally. There had been something that was really bothering me. I had been battling and struggling with this thing for months. I called a few people I could trust and talked with them about it. I mean I was letting this thing get the best of me. God must have knew that I was to my wits-end. I just wanted to take a bath and go to bed. I was over it already and had enough for one day. It was in that moment of beating myself up and being on the verge of giving up that holy spirit hit me hard. It was so hard I almost feel to my knees. I heard God speak to me. He said ” In this you will find me”, ” In this you will find the deliverance that you are seeking”. I cried and cried for the rest of the night. The next morning while I was at work, I called my mom and cried some more while telling her the experience I had in the bathroom the night before. Not only did God speak to me but he also gave me scripture to stand on. He instructed me to read Proverbs 3:5-6. I began to read it and with each word I read, I literally felt God pulling me up spiritually. See he was not touching me physically but he was touching my spirit, my heart. God was telling me that through my praise and worship I will find deliverance. Through my praise and worship I will find peace. Through my praise and worship I will find freedom, true freedom. Amen
In my purpose, there he is also. Amen For so long I thought I had to hide my bad habit. I thought I had to hide my struggles. I was worried about what people thought or what they would say. I spent so much time trying to be perfect by my own strength that I was hindering my own freedom and deliverance. God has granted me permission to walk in my purpose and that is exactly what I am going to do. I encourage you to do the same. Perfection or Freedom is the question and the answer lies in you through your relationship with God. This leads me to my next post….Are you really free??
