Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. - Ephesians 3:20 (NLT)
Acceptance, what does it mean
To take something offered, or to receive
To agree or comply with what is said or done
To consider as true or readily approving
But what are those things that we accept?
Are they things that we should actually reject?
You’re not qualified for this job
You can’t make money from a blog
What do you know about training someone?
Sounds like dream killers, zapping all of the fun
Are these the things we readily accept?
Things that cause us to settle or make us feel inept?
Statements that are limiting, safe, or cautious
Perspectives that make our stomach upset or nauseous
What about through Christ, you can do all things?
Or you are a royal priesthood, descendant of the King of Kings?
Through God’s power we can accomplish more than we think
How about accepting this power and not choosing to shrink?
Accept speaking in faith that a mountain should move
Accept needing no one, but our Lord and Savior to approve
Accept walking confidently in God given power and authority
Accept through obedience to Christ, the blessings and prosperity
Accept the calling God predestined for our lives
Accept the removal of negative habits and unhealthy soul ties
Accept walking into a future filled with grace, joy and liberty
Accept more than could be imagined with God’s guidance and productivity
Accept walking in faith and succeeding when they said you would fail
Accept rising from the ashes when all human help chose to bail
Accept making a U-turn from a string of bad choices in life
Accept being born again and sins washed clean through the blood of Christ
Accept moving into Leadership though that was not your personal goal
Accept being a mentor or a role model and stand in awe as God allows it to unfold
Accept faithful and steady as the pace that is consistent yet firm
Accept the many blessings and share the many lessons that have been learned
Accept being in a position to freely give and reach back to encourage someone else
Accept the responsibility and the privilege of being in position to help
Refuse the negativity, the limiting beliefs, and the acceptance of what is not God ordained
And accept the will of God, the privilege of God and what is established as God sustained
