Last night, the Lord woke me up with this word from Him about this passage. I hope it is an encouragement to you.
"I Am the One who makes you holy, sets you apart to Myself, does the hard work of holiness. I commanded you to be holy as I Am. I know you need this. I also know you can't do it. Lest your heart become discouraged, I remind you that I Am the One who makes you holy. I Am the One who justifies. I Am the One who gives you a new name and makes you a new creation. I Am the One who changes your deepest desires to run hard after Me. I Am the One who gives you the courage and wisdom to choose to do right because your frame needs it. I am not setting before you an impossible task to be accomplished on your own. It would be impossible if you had to do it in your own fallen, twisted strength. I Am setting before you life to the full and enabling you to choose it. Be at peace. This is My work in you. I Am the God who makes you holy."
