Thought of the Day

We don’t have to become perfect before entering into God’s presence.

My pride really struggles with this fact… to an extreme, even. Often, I am insecure about talking or praying to God, so I try to increase my vocabulary and appear to be more intelligent and happy than I really am. Today, God told me to just tell him what’s on my heart. So I told him I wish I could think about and pray to him all the time. He explained the reason I couldn’t do this was because I was being phony, searching for the right words.

God knows everything about us already. We can’t hide from him, nor does he want us to! Trying to be perfect for God, a common dilemma for many believers, prevents a genuine relationship with him! He wants us to be honest to him so he can be honest to us.
