One of my favorite professional wrestlers of old was Mr. Perfect. He would do video promos of himself shooting baskets backwards or diving perfectly into the water. As he completed his task, he would say that what he did was “perfect.”
He lost a match here and there, which I thought was odd. Anyway…
I read this quote on Steven Furtick’s blog the other day…
“There’s a saying that goes, ‘If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans.’ Well apparently if you want to make God mad, tell him your limitations.”
Happened to you? Happened to me just the other day. I was unprepared for a task and got the feeling that my ignorance could somehow handcuff God Almighty.
I forgot the nature of the God I serve.
God uses imperfect people EXCLUSIVELY.
God takes frailty and uses it to produce incredible, eternal things.
And God doesn’t need me: He wants me.
My best efforts will never produce perfection. Thankfully, God doesn’t expect perfect results. He desires a willing, sacrificial, humble heart with a fire to serve and a devotion to glorifying Him and seeking His perfect will.
