We live in a world that is very shallow who see things for face value. We can live our life in a secret from the world; we can have surgeries to slow the aging process, we can inject things into our bodies to make us look better, and we can have the "perfect" family to show off to the world. But the only one who knows who we really are is our Creator. We can never hide from Him, no matter where we go or what we do. He created us that way in order for us to completely depend on Him. We were created to walk this earth entirely to win souls to Him and spread the gospel of Jesus Christ. So of course He knows us better than we know ourselves. In 2 Corinthians 12:9 says that God's power shows up best in our weakness. Isn't that awesome? We are required to allow our weakness show to be upped by God's strength! So it is in our weaknesses and shortcomings that Christ is glorified and magnified in our lives. One when we are surrendered to the fact that we can do nothing ourselves, only what God puts in us. The very same strength that rose Christ from the dead lives inside us when we are saved & surrendered to Him.
Only our Lord and Savior can re-create, restore, and heal our broken bodies and hearts - only Jesus can heal our emotions.
We are all imperfect and fall short to the Glory of God. But in our Creators eyes we are made perfect because God does not make mistakes. We are all called to special assignments, we need to seek His guidance to find it. In 2 Timothy 1:9 it states, "It is he who saved us and chose us for his holy work not because we deserved it but because that was his plan long before the world began - to show love and kindness to us through Christ."
God calls the unqualified and makes them qualified. There is no better time than now, in the middle of your imperfection to embrace your place that The Lord is calling you to do. Ecclesiastes 11:4 says, "If you wait for perfect conditions, you will ever get anything done." Just as the title of this blog states, we truly are Free to be Flawed because the only flawless is God!
