Practice makes Perfect?

Practice makes perfect. Is that really true. With lots of willpower and perseverance you can be and do anything you want. Is it all a matter of desire and true grit? Some people believe that what you want will come to you if you concentrate enough and will it to be there. However, without God in that equation, something just doesn't add up.

If we are all so powerful, how come after years of practice we are still not perfect? I will tell you why. Only God is perfect so anything perfected must come from Him. We read this verse in the Bible that says in Matthew 5:48:
Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.
Perfection is always equated with God Himself. We cannot find it apart from Him. However, we should be practicing holiness and righteousness. We should strive to sin less every day. We need to practice peace, practice love, practice forgiveness and practice patience. No, it may not make you perfect, but the perfect One will be glorified in your life!

Prayer: God, thank You for being such a perfect Savior. Help me not to rely on my own efforts, but to trust you in everything. Make me like you in Jesus name I pray, Amen.

Action: What are you trying to accomplish in your own strength? Ask for God's help instead.
