“And ye are complete in Him, which is the head of principality and power.” Colossians 2:10
We are often tempted to believe we suffer one inadequacy or the other. We tend to believe we would have been better off with a lighter color, a more evenly spread set of teeth, a few more inches taller, a few more pounds lighter, a straighter leg, and so on. We even sometimes query God why he left out that part, as if He is not wise enough to know what is good for us. Sometimes it is not a physical feature but a physiological one, like not being able to speak as fast as someone else, not being able to laugh with ease like another person, and so on.
It is important to understand that, you were formed by a perfect God. He doesn’t make mistakes and all his creations are without blemish. What you consider as a shortcoming is not unnoticed by God. He knows it and can use it to your advantage. He created you as a complete being. Perfect and having everything you require to succeed in life. The problem with us is that we try to find our completeness outside of Him, and that is anti-nature. You can only find your completeness in Him. When you live your life in Him and through Him, you will never have reason to feel incomplete.
So the question is not, ‘why didn’t He create that part of the body the way you want it?’. The question is ‘why are you seeking completeness outside of Him?’. If you stay in Him, you will appreciate how He has created you and He will also bring the right persons, who will appreciate you just as you are, into your life.
Our frustrations are borne out of self dependence rather than God dependence. This is the reason why people take drugs to get high because they feel incomplete without taking those hard substances. It is also why some women undergo dangerous surgeries to increase certain parts of their bodies. Is God that insensitive to have created you that way? Definitely not. It is equally the reason we seek for affirmation by joining cult, so that we can feel powerful (while on the inside we are really jellylike). It is the reason for several hurtful things men do to themselves. Stop hurting yourself. Stop allowing others to hurt you. Find your completeness in Him.
“I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.” Psalm 139:14
Stop trying to complete what God has completed. You are complete in Him.
God bless us all.
Good morning Africa!
