As we continue in our series this month, Letting Go of Perfect, I keep coming across verses that speak to me on this whole issue of giving of perfectionism. I’ll share them with you every Sunday so that you can mull over them too.
Some translations show this verse as “Be still and know that I am God.” Sometimes I need to hear it in the NASB translation, which says to “Cease striving.” I find myself striving so frequently for one thing or another when really, God wants me to rest and let Him do the work in me. I can’t make myself more Christlike. Only He can do that.
Father, I’m trusting you today to make me more like you.
