Beautifully Imperfect

So here we sit, you and I, in our imperfect world in our imperfect state and you gotta know that you are beautifully imperfect wherever you sit and the enemy’s attack on you and I and we and us, is far more about your future potential and what God is going to do with you, than your past failure! It’s not about who you’ve been, or what you’ve done, but in the enemy’s mind, it’s all about who you may become!! Oh yeah, he’s roaming to see who might be easy prey, so he can do what he can in his power to bring defeat into your thoughts. If he can get into your thinking pattern he’s well on his way. Don’t go there! Don’t let him catch you off guard without the spiritual armour in tact.

If you’ve been raised out of the pit of broken to a higher height and if God has brought you out of a hard time to bless you in your walk with Him, and lead you into challenging places of His work and ministry, then it’s a given that you are under the enemy’s surveillance camera! Spiritual armour is a must have in these days where we may be easily tracked to be set up for failure! You gotta know those same all-powerful, heavenly, sovereign arms that lifted you out of the mire to set you free, still have hold of you to pull you into and under the safety and shelter of divine protection! It’s a safe place here with the Saviour, where the enemy’s lies can’t reach you and his tricks can’t deceive you, and his half-truths can’t harm you.

Oh yeah, you beautiful one that you are, you are God’s child, loved by Him, protected by Him, and guarded by Him. Stay safe there for now, under His wings sheltered from the storm, the enemy and all that comes and goes. For now, find peace there until the outside chaos is hushed and the evil one has been silenced and leaves to let you be.

Free from his tricks for now, and It’ll just be for now and for a time, but it’s here with the Saviour, and our Redeemer that we gain new strength for the road and what’s ahead. Oh yeah, it’s not about your past at all, so let it go; freed and forgiven you are in Christ and now it’s about your future, your potential, your victory in Christ, that’s prime target for defeat, but as a child of God, You gotta know that you know that you know, that He has his stamp of approval all over you and your imperfections, and who you are in Him is awesome, and not anything can get in the way of His work, and His desire for you!

David knew His God was a God of Truth, his Refuge, his Fortress, his Rock, his Redeemer, and His Saviour and in Psalm 31 he voices it so beautifully, when he says, and ~ Say it with him, “In you O LORD, I have taken refuge; let me never be put to shame; deliver me in Your righteousness. Turn Your ear to me, come quickly to my rescue; be my rock of refuge, a strong fortress, for the sake of Your name lead and guide me. Free me from the trap that is set for me, for you are my refuge. Into Your hands I commit my spirit; redeem me, O LORD the God of Truth.
Psalm 31: 1-5

Called To Victory

Little Thoughts For Big Days
Little Thoughts For Big Days

It’s certainly true!  We have been born into a sinful world and we fail miserably when measured against the purity and perfectness of Christ. Each one of us is in need of a Savior and a Redeemer to grace us and reconcile us to God and therefore, make a way for us to escape the just penalty and punishment that we so deserve. But friends, as believers, we are not ‘JUST’ a sinner saved by grace. We need to stop justifying our sin and escape from the pit of compromise in our daily living habits. As a Christ One, Christ in-dwells us and has set us apart from the world. He has called us to a holy life! We are His chosen ones. We are the ones “To whom God would make known “What is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ IN you, the hope of glory!” Colossians 1: 27. You aren’t just a sinner saved by grace, ready to fail with the next temptation that comes along, because grace will pick you up. No, no, no…..You’re more than that!! If you have accepted Christ, then Christ, the Hope of glory, lives in you, and you therefore, my friend, have been lifted to the ranks of the saints. You are a saint, living your life in Christ’s power!!!! Defeating the enemy in His power and resisting temptation in His power. His power is at our disposal. His victory is ours…Move out of the slump of a sinner saved by grace. You are exalted as a saint….Live the life of holiness, power and victory that He has called you to!

Romans 3:23-24

“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.”

The Champion Still


So as we move towards Palm Sunday our emphasis and focus is on the triumphal entry of our Lord riding into Jerusalem on the lowliness of a borrowed donkey! The event fulfilled an ancient prophecy prophesied back in Zechariah 9:9:

“Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion! Shout aloud, O daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, your king is coming to you; righteous and having salvation is He, humble and mounted on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey.”

He was their King, but not a military King, arrayed in royal robes of silk and satin, purple or gold, rather He wore the common clothes of humility. His birth place ~ a stable and His bed ~ a feeding trough. His triumphant entry wasn’t mounted on a prancing steed of pride or a spectacular, show horse but rather He approached His ‘palm branch waving,” crowd of fans, on a borrowed donkey, as a lowly servant of God, coming only to seek, to save and to serve. This journey would end in death but the ultimate irony ~ Victory over it! That’s always God’s way ~ Good out of bad!

Christ didn’t come to make war with gunfire and bloodshed or to take by force as earthly kings do, but to win hearts by unconditional love, awesome mercy, amazing grace and His own shed blood and ‘self’ sacrifice for a world lost in wretched sin. He didn’t come to take people captive but to set them free; those bound tightly in their sin and on death row. He doesn’t rule a kingdom of mighty armies but His Kingdom is of Heavenly angels and weakened blood washed saints who have been refined in the fires of adversity and come forth as gold. Powerful, prayer warriors, who’ve been washed in the Blood of the Lamb, cleansed, forgiven and set free from the chains that bound them; they are those who’ve been purged in the fires of struggle, and trial and who have tasted the results of bad choices in the fast lane and on the downside, yet strengthened, quickened and renewed by them all at the same time. His saints and warriors know how to fight the good fight of faith by putting on the full armor of God in order to stand against the wiles and deceits of the enemy and in all faith, they know how to pray mighty prayers that move the hand of God upon our sin sick earth to see results for the glory of God’s Kingdom!   He came not to take nations down but to heal their land through forgiveness and changed lives. He takes minds and renews. He takes lives and cleanses, setting them on the path of healing to new life in Christ. His message is not one of anger but of peace with God!   A peace that’s not of this world:

“Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” John 14: 27:

Only a week after His triumphal entry, Christ carried His own cross to that Gethsemane Hill where He willingly laid down His life for the good of the world. He offered peace, but the majority didn’t get it, and the cross ruled as they nailed Him there ~ as we nailed Him there in those lonely moments, when God turned His back allowing the sin of the world to be laid on Him. It was there on that ugly yet beautiful cross that Christ took the sin of mankind upon Himself.   Let your mind wander to that Hill, to the mercy cross!    Let your heart follow to that place where justice and mercy meet; to that scandalous place of blood shed, horrendous horror, torture, humility and sacrificial servant hood to the ultimate degree! Yet against all odds, three days later, He rose again, defeating death, according to and fulfilling His Father’s will.

Meet Him there at the cross, for forgiveness and then look to His victory over death and the empty grave for hope and everlasting life beyond death!

One day He will rule the world in peace but until then, He still desires to make His triumphal entry into the individual hearts and souls of those that will receive Him; to set up His Kingdom of peace in the lives of human kind one by one and in so doing, heal the nations of the world one heart at a time, through cleansing and forgiveness, saving it and it’s people from it’s own sinful, self –destruction. He still offers peace but the majority just doesn’t get it!

His motive is salvation! His driving force forgiveness and healing! His message ~ unconditional love and His rule is peace! It’s simple yet many don’t get it!  Have you got it?
