His Perfection, Not Our Abilities

Lee Michaels | April 8, 2013 | Comment

Human perspective sure is a “far cry” from God’s. There are too many days in my life that am so disappointed in my reactions, attitudes, and distractions. All morning long I’ve determined to focus on the Lord’s plan for my day and then human weaknesses awaken and want a lot of space. I realize, with no doubt, that we are no match for the power of darkness. I don’t think Satan minds our time of daily Bible reading as long as we’re preoccupied about today’s activities. I don’t think he minds our prayer time as long as we’re hearing the annoying sound outside our window, capturing our attention. He probably doesn’t mind our desire to serve The Living Savior as long as we’re irritated by squabbling neighbors in the next house and our junk scattered everywhere in the house! That’s when disappointment shows its face… Thank the Lord for His outstretched arms of grace and mercy! It is only His understanding of our human nature and His desire to offer forgiveness and restoration that brings renewed joy and meaning to the hours ahead. He is able to successfully direct us through the day despite our weaknesses.
2 Corinthians 1:3: Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort.
