Shared from The Samaritan’s Song, a snippet, great post.
When we think of our omniscient God, it’s easy to remember that the “all-knowing” aspect of Him sees all of our failures and flaws.
And God can indeed see those things. But God also knows all of our possibilities and strengths and what we have the capacity to do. More than we do, God has the vision of who exactly we are meant to be, what we might be like when we’re everything He created us for.
Yes, our life on earth is a span in which we are meant to love other people and to make Jesus’ love known through our own lives. But it is also the span in which God is working – editing, if you will – to make us the person He knows we will and can be.
Sometimes that involves correction, the erasing of flaws and bad habits, the changing of wrong things. But it involves revising, too, and God uses the everyday circumstances of our lives to shape us, to match us to His vision of who we really are beyond the sin and under the blood
