It isn’t that we ourselves are qualified to claim that anything came from us. No, our qualification is from God. He has qualified us as ministers of a new covenant, not based on what is written but on the Spirit, because what is written kills, but the Spirit gives life.
2 Corinthians 3:5-6 CEB
Too often we give way to our insecurities and failures. I've seen some of my close friends who have dealt with insecurities, not realizing their worth. Nothing in this world is going to qualify us for eternity. It could be our education, career, appearance, or anything, but nothing really matters when we meet God face to face. His love has qualified us for His work, His grace has qualified us for forgiveness...it is through Him that we are qualified. I've seen a few people who think a little high of themselves, the moment they see a blessing a little pride seeps in. I'm sure it feels good when blessings gush in like a flood, but to forget God in times like that isn't fair. God makes us qualified, meaning He'll mend our ways and discipline us in areas where we need change. To be qualified isn't a bed of roses, but rather a bush of thorns. It's pretty hard to walk through, sometimes we might feel like giving up. But His grace is sufficient for us to walk past all failures and challenges that come our way. Every test is for a season and through these tests, God qualifies us and gives us our tasks based on them.
He is the source of your life in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God, and righteousness and sanctification and redemption, in order that, as it is written, “Let the one who boasts, boast in the Lord.”
1 Corinthians 1:30-31 NRSV
God is willing to use us in every possible way, but in everything, He is to be glorified. All the certificates and recognition that the human mind gives us, is of no value in His sight. He will make you qualified for what we are called. Remember, you’re called and qualified for a greater work.
Father, I pray that you’d qualify me through your grace and love. Teach me your ways and help me to walk according to them. Help me to overcome every challenges and failure that come my way, in you I trust.
It is so by Faith, and by Faith so it is. AMEN❤
