Under Construction

Ta-Dah!!!! Finished!!! Nothing more to be done; I’m perfect. Sounds great, doesn’t it? How many of us out there strive for this end all, be all perfection? How many of us get such tunnel vision in the scrutiny of details that we forget to give ourselves a break of grace in this process called life? See yourself here? Do you see yourself under construction or under oppression?

God has told us that it is He who will perfect the things concerning us (Psalm 138:8). We, therefore, don’t need to have every issue, every second, every single thing of our lives figured out. God tells us that His thoughts are not our thoughts anyway (Isaiah 55:9).

Right now, are you obsessing, or rather, WHAT are you obsessing about? Who you are, what you’re grappling with in your life is not all there is to the story. You and I are under construction. Part of that construction process involves the truth that God’s Grace is needed because we are imperfect and will blow it, sometimes, big time, during our lives. But these mistakes don’t overwhelm God at all. He takes even our mistakes and works incredible things from them. Check out Romans 8:28:

“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”
While you’re under construction, whatever that may mean to you, remember, God’s the Architect, the Master Designer of it all. His plan is never to leave you as a broken road or bridge; you are created to be His incredible victorious child of purpose. And so, the construction continues. Go about your life being under construction, not under oppression; you’re worth God’s process in you!
