With time comes experience, the awakening of awareness. Through awareness, the mind apprehends the condition and the state of the individual.
Humanity was created, created in perfection, male and female they were. Consequently, regardless of one’s acceptance, or rejection, or the denial of God, nevertheless, within the individual is the endeavor for a change for perfection.
For he or she, they were created in perfection by God.
For those that are saved, perfection is a process, a process that is predicated upon condition and position.
Our position in Christ as a Christian is perfect, meaning we are what we are because of who He is, the perfect Savior. Our position of perfection shall never change if we abide with the Lord.
However, our condition isn’t always steady. Nevertheless, due to the believer’s perfect position in Christ, there will come a time when the believer’s position and condition shall par in perfection, wherewith those things that easily beset us shall be no more, and the desire of our hearts shall be made known.
Illustratively speaking for a precise understanding, if a wealthy family of royalty adopted a child of the street, the child is instantly one of the royal family members. This is the position spoken of, they are a perfect royal family. Although the child may not feel like a royalty, at times its position will waver. Being a royalty, while reverting to the nature of the street, wherewith they were once removed. However, if the child stays and grow, there will come a time when their condition shall no more be the impulse of the street, but the adaptation of royalty.
Such is the Christian life, He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in Him will I trust. (Psalms 91:1-2)
Christ is our path to that Royal family and He is the embodiment of the family
His very presence guarantees forgiveness and restoration completely on our part. Therefore, when God looks at us, He sees perfection, which is the perfection of Christ our representative man, He ever lives, meaning because He lives, we can face tomorrow, therefore, life is worth the living.
Unless the individual removes themselves from the shadow of the Almighty, they are forever protected. Where there is protection there is Grace, with Grace comes mercy and the giving of forgiveness.
Forgiveness is love, and love is patient, if He is patient in working on us, let us by faith endure the changes we perceive on a daily basis. Though we fail at times, but we forget those things we have done.
Look to the source for the change rather than the reason for the change which is the failure.
For those that are fighting the good fight of faith, be not weary in well doing. Let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.
Knowing this according to Hebrew 7:25, the Lord ever lives to make intercession for us. Our gratitude for His intercession on our behalf isn’t how often He pleads our case of failures, but because He ever lives, grace and mercy are instantaneously imputed unto us.
Though the world set goals and a New Year resolution, be it not a crime, but for unto us which are saved, this we know; Only believe, only believe, all things are possible, only believe.
Lord, I BELIEVE.
