“You have proved my heart; you have visited me in the night;
you have tried me, and shall find nothing;
I am determined that my mouth shall not transgress.”
This is perfection, and this is how you live your life when you walk in the Spirit. Perfection does not mean you never drop a fork, or never trip on a rug, or always understand everything. Perfection is a heart that will not lie, a heart that is determined to live uprightly in all situations. Perfection is a heart like God’s, and that kind of heart passes every test. When Jesus said, “Be perfect, even as your heavenly Father is perfect,” this is the perfection he was talking about. And he was telling us that it is doable.
Do not believe those who say that you can never be perfect. They say that because of their unbelief. You believe God, and He will lead you into perfection. It’s the only place He ever leads any of His children.
