PERFECTION: NOT OPTIONAL

PERFECTION: NOT OPTIONAL details logo Open Heavens - Saturday, March 12, 2016

Details
PERFECTION: NOT OPTIONAL

Read:
Genesis 17:1-7
Bible in one year:
Joshua 8:30-10:28
Job 35:9-36:4

During the January 2015 Ministers’ Thanksgiving, the Lord asked me to make our ministers examine themselves and be sure that they were 100% perfect. After the meeting, one of my children said that some ministers were asking whether it was possible to be 100% perfect. What such brethren don’t know is that the demand for perfection has been from the Old Testament. Another thing they don’t know is that perfection is not an optional virtue.

This perfection is available if we can believe God for it and surrender to the Lordship of Jesus Christ. In Christ, there is never an end to spiritual growth because He is infinite. Hence, we must be ready to go further and further with God until we come to the level of His perfection when we do not see ourselves any longer but it becomes all about Him. If we don’t align ourselves to this requirement, we will never be carriers of His glory. Perfection is the premise upon which the rest of our walk with God will be assessed. The moment we begin this walk of perfection, we begin to attract divine presence and easily draw God’s glory daily.

Perfection makes you a threat to the kingdom of darkness. Right from my early days as General Overseer, I had learn't the secret of my victory through the authority of His Name and a walk of perfection. You just notice that you become a carrier of His presence, and at the mere sight of your person, demons begin to flee because they are not prepared to make the sacrifice of walking in perfection. They see it as unrealistic. They easily rationalise it as an impossible feat. Hence, the Devil uses this ignorance to deny them their rightful place in God’s program. God should be able to predict your actions. There is a need to change your mindset so that the blessings of God concerning your life will not be hampered.

There is an aspect of you not yet discovered because you are still far from God. The devil is aware of what havoc you will cause to his domain the moment you make up your mind to walk in perfection. God wants to do some things in your life that will cause the ears of people around you to tingle, but you must be ready to walk before God in purity and perfection. If it was impossible for Abraham to walk perfectly before God, God wouldn’t have made such a demand. Moreover, the demand was for his good, and this is why you need to understand that walking before the Lord in perfection makes God committed to making you exceedingly great.

Memorise:
Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.
Matthew 5:48

Hymn:
Sing hymn 4

Prayer Point:
Father, please grant me the grace to walk perfectly before You.

In this uncommon race that we have enlisted in, if you rest prematurely, or take your eyes off the daystar we are following, you will be distracted.
