God is not just speaking to the Saved when He says, “Come”. No. He’s speaking to you who are unsaved.
Now let me say it this way too. God is not just speaking to the unsaved when He says, “Come”. No. He’s speaking to you who are Saved.
Oftentimes, whether Saved or unsaved, we think that we have to have it all together before we can come to God. Our i‘s have to be dotted and our t’s crossed. There is to be no flaw in us, right? This is not true. God knows that we are far-from-perfect people; full of flaws and imperfections. He doesn’t want us to have it all together. In fact, He wants us to be broken and in pieces when we come to Him. Why? Because He is the One who can put us rightly together and make us whole.
The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit,
a broken and a contrite heart –
these, O God, You will not despise. ~ Psalm 51:17
God bids us come. He loves it when we approach Him in whatever state that we are in. The Word of God says that those who God chooses and causes to approach Him are blessed (Psalm 65:4). It’s okay for us to not have it all together. It is in not having it all together that we are blessed. Take a look at these reasons why:
- When we walk in darkness, God becomes our Light.
- When our lives are filled with sin, God gives us His righteousness.
- When the enemy attacks us with lies, God reveals to us His Truth.
- When we are full of doubt, God becomes our Blessed Assurance.
- When there is hate in our hearts, God fills us with His love.
- When we are weak, God’s strength makes us strong.
In coming to God as we are, we are able to find two things: 1) Rest from all of our strivings. 2) What is acceptable to Him.
Come to Me, all of you who are tired and have heavy loads,
and I will give you rest. Accept My teachings and learn from Me,
because I am gentle and humble in spirit,
and you will find rest for your lives.
~ Matthew 11:28,29
The awesome thing about it all is that………God sees everything. God knows everything. There’s no need for hiding or pretense. Sister, just simply “Come.”
