God is not waiting for the ideal you, for the future you, for the no doubts you, for the cleaned up you. God is waiting for the real you, the vulnerable you, the honest you. He already knows who you are. He knows what you’re struggling with. There’s freedom when you can come to God honest and open, knowing that He doesn’t judge you, He doesn’t condemn you, He’s not finding fault. He has mercy for every mistake, grace for every weakness, faith for every fear.
Because you honor God, He’s dealing with your enemies. He’s fighting those battles. The people that are trying to stop you are not going to succeed. It may look like they have the upper hand, they have more authority.
They may be over you, but the good news is our God is over them. Keep doing the right thing. Don’t take matters into your own hands. God is your defender.
By this time next year, the enemies you see today you will see no more. By this time next year, what was meant for your harm will be turned to your advantage.
