Many have tried all they could to do to be accepted by God, they have gone to all the breaths and lengths to earn God’s approval; they have placed several demands on themselves, and they are still trying. They go like “I need to consecrate myself for God’s use”, if God’s really going to use me, then I will have do this or that, there’s a price I will have to pay to get some manifestations”.
Some, because of their endless search, they were met with frustrations and thus treading on a wrong path; and while on the wrong path, the vacuum is still very much there and their thirsts never quenched. Actually ordeals like these are results of self – righteousness consciousness, and as long as a man functions in this perspective, he will always try to do something to earn God’s qualification and will never earn it.
Even when challenges arise, they can easily trace it to something they did wrong somewhere, also in the same vein, when they record achievements in an endeavour, they go on to attribute to it something they have done right.
Jesus is the end of every search! In Him all journeys are completed and every search ended. The believer has been accepted by the Father because of what Jesus did ,n not what he’s trying to do; he does not need to do anything to gain God’s acceptance (Ephesians 1:6).
Jesus is all the qualification a man needs. He is actually the answer to everything. Walking and living in Him is receiving answer to everything. In Him, there are no “ifs”; in Him is “Yes and “Amen” (2 Corinthians 1: 20)
Colossians 1: 12 [AMP] – Giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified us to share in the inheritance of the saints (God’s people) in the Light.
This is not what God is trying to make available for us, He’s already done it. Are you a part of God’s people who live in the light? In Jesus? In the reality of the Word of God? Then you are “a sharer” of all the inheritances made and reserved for everyone who lives in the light. You’re not to make it available; it is yours already! Jesus made it so.
Your duty is to appropriate these realities by walking in the light of who are and what you have and to give thanks to God always who has qualified you. Glory to God!
CONFESSION – I am qualified in Christ, I am a God’s favourite and I have been accepted by Him. I live out God’s original design for me. I walk in the light as He is in the light. I am qualified! I am qualified!
