Perfect People Not Wanted

That's a God Thing!


Is God ironic? He seems to do logical things in various illogical manners. It’s so funny that we all aspire to His perfection but, throughout the Bible, He has shown us that perfect people are NOT necessary or wanted for His tasks. Simply put, He’s already perfect so, why would He want to use a perfect being - that would be redundant. In any event, the closer someone is to “perfection” the more they want to control. So, how is that a “God thing”?

Why does God use people of low degree, like Mary who was a peasant girl and carried God’s Son? Why did He use a Moabite like Ruth, or a prostitute like Rehab to carry on the family line? Why did Jesus use a woman to anoint His feet before His crucifixion Why did God use women to complete the tasks that were, in that day, considered for men only - like Jael who bludgeoned Sisera? These women were women. There was nothing all that remarkable about them that He would choose them except that they we obedient and trusted God - a God some of them didn’t even know. That’s a God thing.

God uses people who are perfectly imperfect because the more imperfect we are the greater the chances are that He will receive His due glory. At the end of the day, we can usually see that God, in His plans, always seems to teach the teachable.

This post isn’t about men vs women. This post is about accepting your “station” (position), in life, and trusting that God will never leave you alone to work His plan. He was always with you, even before you knew Him. He is still with you. He will always be with you. He said it so, you can take that to the bank. In light of the fact that He is the Alpha and Omega we need to be certain in our hearts that we will never fail a God-given task if God is behind it, unless of course you’re disobedient.

God shames the wise (those who believe they are all-wise). He brings down the high and mighty, (those who think they are above all), and thwarts the plans of the rich (those who are stingy).

A woman with a heart for God attends to Him. She worships and praises Him. She knows His voice and listens to His counsel. She has a teachable spirit and loves from deep within. She trusts Him.

Stop striving to be perfectly perfect. It can’t be done alone. His Spirit lives within you. Seek Him in the Holy of Holies that is within you. Be teachable and receptive to receive all He has for you and do what He’s prepared you to do … you perfectly imperfect and beautiful woman of God!
