I recently went through a season. It was a season where the devil had penetrated my mind and all I could see and feel were my weaknesses. This season felt like I could see the reality of some of the things that God has said concerning me; it felt closer than ever before. And so, I became afraid. The fear of not being able to fulfill my assignments and going back to God empty because I was too weak and incapable. My doubts and fear were the weaknesses that seemed like a barrier between me and the fulfilment of my destiny.

During this period, I would cry to God everytime I was reminded of my shortcomings by the devil. But you know how God is very intentional about His children. And so, everytime I read my Bible, the Holy Spirit would remind me of passages in the bible I once read where God used men who seemed ordinary at the beginning, and so I would read them again. We have the stories of Moses, Paul, Aaron, David and the likes. I could discern that the sermons at my church during this period was specially for me, because God was very much aware of all that was happening with me. And so, one very night I had a dream. But when I woke up, I couldn’t remember what I dreamt about. But I remembered there was a strange atmosphere around me when I woke up in the middle of the night. It was like I had encountered something very revelational, but I couldn’t remember the dream.

But let’s look at 2 Samuel 22:33.

“God is my strength and Power: and He maketh my way perfect”.

God doesn’t need the “perfect man". He only needs “the man".

A potter is only able to shape, mold and form artworks made out of clay. He doesn’t take a perfect artwork to mold again. This is what God does. God is the potter in this context. He chooses men who are like clay(willing men), cleanses them(being consecrated) and makes them a masterpiece-His masterpiece. He takes the imperfect men to make them perfect in Him. All you have to do is to be willing. This was the revelation I got from my dream as the holy spirit brought the dream to my remembrance after a midweek service I attended at my church.

When God talks about making a man perfect, the perfection doesn’t take place in oneself but in God Himself. A transaction is made in the process. That is, there is an exchange of spirit. The spirit of your weakness for that of His strength. The strength we need to fulfill our assignment is drawn from God at the altar of fellowship and intimacy from a place of consistency. The altar is a place of fire where we drop the excesses and receive wholeness.

Consistency is a major key here. There are several dimensions of God you will never receive as a man if you are inconsistent with Him. When a man is consistent at the altar, God continually pours out Himself on such person. A place where we keep beholding Him till we are transformed.

2 Corinthians 3:18 But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the LORD.

God is very much aware of our weaknesses, and He is glorified in our weaknesses. Apostle Paul in the bible says the strength of God is made perfect in our weaknesses. Don’t try to put on a facade of strength and just allow God. God intentionally let’s us become aware of our own weaknesses, so that we can allow Him come in and make Himself perfect through us.

Beloved, if you ever find yourself in this same season that I went through, a season of doubt, fear, the feeling of not being enough, feeling incapable, all you need to do is just allow God. Seek Him, maintain intimacy with Him and watch God do so much through you; more than you could ever imagine.

Prayer Points:

  • Dear God, please teach me to trust you, and help me to seek you consistently.
  • Lord, please mold me until I look like your masterpiece.
