God is perfect

Yesterday we talked about how God is perfect and He wants us to be perfect.  Since we can’t do that on our own, He sent Jesus.  If you didn’t read yesterday’s topic, go back and read it by clicking here.

So why is it important that God is perfect?  Well, first of all, because you’re not.  I’m not either.  We make mistakes, we mess up.  God never makes a mistake.  Not one.  Ever.  God not only doesn’t make mistakes, He can’t make mistakes.

That’s good news for those of us who trust in Him!  When we pray, we know that we’re asking God, the one who doesn’t make any mistakes.  When we think He didn’t answer our prayers the right way, we know that can’t be true because He’s perfect.  He always does what He means to do and He never messes it up.  We can really trust Him!

God has a plan for your life.  And since He’s perfect, you know it’s a good plan!  Even when things don’t seem like they’re going right, you can know that it’s going to work out the way God planned it.

Joseph was someone who had to trust God through a lot of bad stuff happening. Read about his life in Genesis 37-45.  Do you think Joseph ever doubted God?

Memorize John 3:16. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” Get some help if you need it!
