A Perfect Heart
2 Chronicles 16:9
Time and time again in my life, the Lord has reminded me that He doesn’t look for perfect performance from us, but perfect hearts.
A lot of people think God won’t use them until each area of their lives is perfected. That type of thinking keeps people from allowing God to use them. But God uses us in spite of us, not because of us.
Sometimes people “love” you based on your performance. If you do what they want you to do, they accept you; but if you don’t, they reject you. God’s love is based only on God. He loves you and accepts you as you are.
This doesn’t mean we should have a loose attitude and not desire to live a holy life. A person whose heart is perfect toward God is always going to earnestly and zealously desire to please God in all things, yet they understand that God will never reject them because of their weaknesses or mistakes. He wants to love us and help us when we’re weak.
Let God love you, and in return, give Him your love with a perfect heart!
Prayer Starter: God, I know that You love me despite my weaknesses and flaws. I thank You for this love and give my heart to You, knowing that You can use me when I follow You with a perfect heart.
