What Does It Take To Be Perfect!

“God’s way is perfect. All the Lord’s promises prove true. He is a shield for all who look to him for protection. God is my strong fortress, and he makes my way perfect.”
‭‭2 Samuel‬ ‭22:31, 33‬ ‭NLT‬‬

I don’t know about you, but I have never claimed to be perfect. Even though I desire and strive for perfection. As I meditate on 2 Samuel 22:31 it starts off with, God’s way is perfect. In Psalms 18:30 it also says, As for God, His way is perfect. In the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth. This beautiful world we live in. God said it is good, we know it to be perfect. All the Lord’s promises prove true. Yes, the promises of God are sure, they have been tested, and tried as by fire, and they will never fail. He is a shield for all who look to him for protection. It also states in Psalms 18:30 He is a shield to all who trust in Him. God is our shield and protection from evil.

What I determined is three-fold: 1. God does not do things halfway. His way is perfect and everything he does is perfect. 2. We can trust God. His word and promises have been tested and prove true. 3. God is a shield of protection for all that believe and trust in him.

”But you are to be perfect, even as your Father in heaven is perfect.”
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭5:48‬ ‭NLT‬

Jesus said, that we are to be perfect, as our Heavenly Father is perfect. Humanly this is impossible but through God, all things are possible. 2 Samuel 22:33 reads, God is my strong fortress, and He makes my way perfect. God promises when you give your life to Jesus, He will equip you with every good thing to carry out his will, making you complete and perfect through Jesus Christ, to whom be the glory forever and ever. I’m human and still make mistakes but God has clothed me with His righteousness. He surrounds me with His Love, Mercy, and Grace. If it’s your desire to be made perfect through Jesus Christ, I encourage you to invite him to come into your heart! May God continue to bless you. ❤️

BENEDICTION: ”Now may the God of peace [the source of serenity and spiritual well-being] who brought up from the dead our Lord Jesus, the great Shepherd of the sheep, through the blood that sealed and ratified the eternal covenant, equip you with every good thing to carry out His will and strengthen you [making you complete and perfect as you ought to be], accomplishing in us that which is pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be the glory forever and ever. Amen.”
‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭13:20-21‬ ‭AMP‬‬
