Relax in God's Grace


Do you know you don't have to be perfect for God to love you? Psalm 119:96 says, "Nothing is perfect except God's word." (TLB) Put that on your refrigerator door. Grace is the only antidote for perfectionists. God understands you completely. He's fully aware of your humanity. He knows what makes you tick. He knows your faults, your fears, your foibles, your failures and frustrations and all those things. He knows you. He doesn't expect you to be Superman. He's like a father. "As a father is kind to his children, so the Lord is kind to those who honor him. He knows what we are made of. He remembers that we are dust." (Psalm 103:13-14 GNT) I have two kids. Both of them had to learn to walk. This was the process: They'd take a step, and they'd stumble. They'd get up, take two steps, and stumble. What was my reaction as a father to that? Did I say, "What are you doing stumbling? You're a Wade and Wades don't stumble! We have dignity. Get up. You can do better than that"? Of course not! How silly! And yet you think that's how God treats you. You think that every time you stumble, God says, "Get up! What are you doing, you dummy!" There is nothing that you will ever do that will make God love you more than he does right now. There is nothing that you will ever do that will make God love you less than he does right now. His love is unconditional. It's not based on what you do or don't do.


“There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.”

‭‭Romans‬ ‭8:1‬ ‭NKJV‬‬
