You can still win

Colossians 1:12

….giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light.

The awesome thing about God is that He has already qualified us for the good stuff. We are not still trying to make the grade and impress God into giving us an inheritance of blessing. The standard has already been met on our behalf.

So many of us are hung up on our failings and mistakes and we disqualify oursleves for good because of them. But notice in the Olympic games that it is not necessary to have a flawless performance in order to win gold. It is OK to fall, and then to get up and go again. You can still come up for a medal.

There is no doubt that in life we will come up short, but that doesn’t mean we have to just sit back and watch others prosper and attain their dreams. God has set us up so that even with our shortcomings, we can still be partakers, because He has made it so that we qualify.

May I invite you to accept and rest in this wonderful truth today?
