30 Days of Praise and Thanksgiving: Day 25

Day: 25: I don’t have to be perfect.

Everyone knows Romans 8:28, “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.” But when I read Romans 8:29 today it got my attention, “For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.” Predestinate means foreordained. I had to read more…, “30 Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified. 31 What shall we then say to these things? If God [be] for us, who [can be] against us? 32 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things? 33 Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God’s elect? [It is] God that justifieth. 34 Who [is] he that condemneth? [It is] Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us.” Me, that girl that’s messed up so many times “he did predestinate”! It says I was called… you were called. “If God [be] for us, who [can be] against us?” This brought tears to my eyes as I typed this. Me, this woman who is still a work in progress has “Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us” WOW! I strive for perfection at work. I strive for perfection in the eyes of others. (Tears pouring). I strive for perfection in every area of my life and Christ says come as you are weary one. I’m working the kinks out. I just had to share this with y’all! I’m sure I’ve read past Romans 8:28 before, but I never really digested it until tonight. He chose me before I had ever made a mistake. He had already written my destiny out and knew when I’d walk into it. He knew every side road I’d take, every time I’d try to jump ship, He knew it all and still chose me for such a time as this! He’s been there this whole time making intercession for me. You know what? He knew your path too and He’s been there making intercession for you too. Praise shout anyone?! 🙌🏻 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal

💙 Thank You Father God that I’m a work in progress! 💙

If we believe not, [yet] he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself. ~ 2 Timothy 2:13
