It is both amazing and humbling to me to think that God can take a disqualified person like me and make me qualified in His Son Jesus to preach His Love to the world. Everyday He is making me new and qualifying me to teach about different things. For example forgiveness. Sometimes I struggle in this area, but God continues to help me grow in this area qualifying me to share how His power helps me to overcome any unforgiveness in my heart.
God never owed me anything, in fact I owed Him. God knew I couldn’t pay my debt so He paid it for me and He gave me everything. All I want is to serve Him all the days of my life.
In my walk with God the enemy constantly tries to make me feel disqualified because of my sins, he tries to make me feel like I’m not worthy of God’s calling for my life. But everytime the enemy tries to make me feel this way I am reminded by God that I am His and that in Jesus I am qualified. I was recently in a time like this and God reminded me that my best to Him is as filthy rags because of my sin, so even if I did everything I could to do right on my own it still wouldn’t be enough. That it is only in Jesus that I am forgiven and God has the authority to forgive me and so if He says I am forgiven then I am forgiven and nothing can change that. The enemy has no place to tell me I am unforgiven, he doesn’t have the authority in the first place because I belong to God in Christ Jesus.
So today if you are feeling unworthy, disqualified, or unforgiven I want to pray with you because God wants you to know that He loves you and that in Jesus you are forgiven of any sins. It doesn’t matter what you’ve done, if you are in Christ you are made new and today is a new day. God has a calling for your life and He will prepare you for it, just trust Him. In Jesus you are worthy, you are qualified, and you are forgiven.
Father God, we praise You and thank you for Your amazing Love. We thank You for sending Jesus to die on the cross for our sins and pay the debt we could not pay. Father God, we ask that You would forgive us for our sins and that You would help us to be more like Jesus. We ask that you would prepare our hearts for the calling You have on each and everyone of our lives and that You would brings us to where You want us to be. Father God we ask for Your Love to shine through us so that others can see You and that You give us the courage to share Your Word with others. I pray that all those who hear Your Word Father God would be touched by Your Holy Spirit and that they would find healing and rest in Your Loving arms. In Jesus Name I pray Amen
