Accepted By God

Ephesians 1:6

to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved.

The Father has accepted all who are in Christ Jesus because of what Jesus has done for us. Have you ever seen someone who wanted to be accepted by others so badly that they did whatever they could to gain acceptance, even leading them to act like someone they are not? People do many things in trying to feel accepted by others.

Many believers do not share their faith because they are afraid of being embarrassed, which is wanting acceptance. When we as believers in Christ try and find our worth in being accepted by others it will often lead us to act like someone we are not. In doing so we then begin to drift away from God no longer living as a Christ follower and we therefore break our fellowship with Him. But God has already accepted us through the blood Christ shed for us.

We no longer need to try and find our value and worth in being accepted by others, for our sole worth comes from God. So as a born again child of God don’t try to be someone you are not to gain man’s acceptance, and don’t fall for the lie that God has not received you. Because of what Jesus did for you, you are already accepted by God, and therefore a son or daughter of God.

Open The Door

1 John 5:20

And we know that the Son of God has come, and He has given us understanding so that we can know the true God. And now we live in fellowship with the true God because we live in fellowship with his Son, Jesus Christ. He is the only true God, and He is eternal life.

What was the primary reason Jesus came? So that we through Him being born again could be restored back into a relationship with God, so that we could know God. Far too many believers are satisfied with getting born again and then continuing to live life on their own instead of taking time to get to know their Heavenly Father, who desires to walk with them every day.

There is only one way you will experience true peace, joy, and contentment in life, and that is in knowing God; not just knowing about Him. As the scripture above reveals we live in fellowship with God through our fellowship with Jesus. The disciples of Jesus’ day did so spending time with Jesus every day. For us we do so by spending time in the Word each day, for Jesus is the Word that became flesh. When we take time to fellowship with the Lord through His Word, we fellowship with our God and Father.

Get to know the Word (Jesus), and you get to know your God and Father who loves you and desires to love on you. There is no one nor anything that will make your life complete except knowing God. So the door of fellowship unto the Father opens to us when we choose to open our Bible, for when we do we open the door to God. Open the door, He is waiting.

Seek First The Kingdom

Luke 12:31

31 Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and he will give you everything you need.

This is a powerful and I believe often misunderstood truth. Why do believers worry about finances, or about having what they need in this life? It is quite obvious by this verse that if this be true about our lives then we are not biblically seeking the Kingdom of God, for in the previous verses Jesus tells us not to worry about what we need in this life. The word seek simply means to pursue or endeavor to obtain. But what exactly are we in this verse being told what to pursue and obtain? A closer look at the original definition of the word Kingdom is quite interesting and usually taught differently then it’s actual meaning.

Vines expository dictionary defines this word Kingdom as follows: God calls upon men everywhere, without distinction of race or nationality, to submit voluntarily to His rule. Over and over again through different Greek scholars you continually see the word being defined as submitting to the dominion, authority, reign, and rule of the King over that kingdom. You see this truth in the story of a Roman Centurion who came to Jesus wanting Him to heal a servant of his who was at the point of death. He knew if Jesus just spoke the Word his servant would be healed for he to was a man under authority.

There is a lot in this account but simply put, someone who pursues and obtains submission of their life under the King of the kingdom Jesus Christ will not worry about anything in this life, for they know being submitted fully to Him means I now walk in what only I hear and see Him doing. As I do I will walk in all that is in the Kings domain. Want to never worry about anything in your life again, including what others may think of you? Then pursue to become fully submitted to the King and all that you have need of will be added to you!

Pray With Confidence

1 John 5:14-15

14 Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.

15 And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.

One of the keys to effective prayer is knowing what you have prayed about is in line with God’s will for you. You can’t believe you have received something from God if you don’t know it is God’s will. Before we ever pray about anything we need to first make sure it is in line with the will of God for us. When we do so then we know God not only heard our prayer, we know we have what we have asked of Him.

Think of how much time people have spent praying not knowing if God heard them or not. The first thing you must do is go to God’s Word and find scripture that gives you the promise of what you are believing for. Once you do, you have established it is His will, for God’s Word reveals what His desires are for us. Once you find scripture for God’s promise, you must get it fixed in your heart this is His desire for me.

Some people think God will hear them if they just pray long enough but that is not true either. God has no problem hearing any prayer that is prayed in faith according to His will. So before you petition God for anything find out His will in His Word. Settle it in your heart that it is His will for you. Then when you pray you will know He has heard you, and you will know you have what you have asked of Him. Then just keep thanking Him for what He has said is already yours, believing you have received when you pray.

Our Opinion Does Not Matter

Psalms 119:89

Forever, O Lord, Your word is settled in heaven.

So what is your opinion about having a pastor and being a part of a local church? What about tithing, unforgiveness, speaking in tongues, sharing the gospel, etc? The truth is it doesn’t matter what our opinion may be about things that the Bible is clear about. What many believers don’t understand is that when you choose to have your own opinion about what is clear in scripture, this will hinder your ability to walk in Bible faith.

Sad to say many don’t really understand Bible faith, and yet we are told to live by faith. Many who think they are really are not. A key to Bible faith is getting settled in your heart once and for all that whatever God said is Truth, and our opinion really doesn’t matter. You see even though many know scripture teaches that by the stripes of Jesus we are healed, yet they don’t act as if that is actually true. Their confession reveals that they don’t actually believe such scriptures because if they did they would agree with God’s Word and only speak in line with God’s Word.

Back to the main point. When you take simple things that I mentioned above and choose to have your own opinion about such things, choosing to not act upon them, this will hinder your ability to walk by faith in the promises of God. You are not taking His Word as final authority, but instead choose to see things “your way”. Doing so puts you in disagreement with God. His Word is settled in heaven and for all eternity, and therefore it doesn’t matter what we think about it. If we will choose to take all of God’s Word as our final authority and therefore walk in the light of that Word, we will learn to walk by faith and not by sight.
