1 Corinthians 1:30
But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God—and righteousness and sanctification and redemption—
When the devil accuses us of having done wrong and tells us that we don’t deserve God’s blessings, what should we do? Well, the Lord showed me one day what we are to do. We are to point everything back to Jesus, who qualifies us for all of God’s blessings.
So when the devil says, “You are not righteous enough,” just look to Jesus and declare, “He is my righteousness!”
When the devil says, “You are not holy enough,” just look to Jesus and declare, “He is my sanctification!”
When the devil says, “You don’t deserve to be healed,” just look to Jesus and declare, “By His stripes I am healed!”
When the devil says, “You don’t qualify for the blessing,” just look to Jesus and declare, “He is my qualification!”
Each time you point everything back to Jesus, the devil has nothing to say because Jesus qualifies you for all of God’s blessings. In and of yourself, you do not qualify. Without Christ, there is nothing good in you that can qualify you.
But with Christ, your disqualification becomes your qualification for the undeserved, unearned and unmerited blessings of God. And because God puts your life in Christ (see Colossians 3:3), who is the all-deserving one, you become all-deserving. Because you are in Christ, you are qualified.
Jesus qualifies you because He died for you and gave you a blood-bought right to every blessing of God. You have a blood-bought right to a life full of meaning, purpose and abundance. You have a blood-bought right to walk in divine health. You have a blood-bought right to God’s provision even when the economy is bad. You have a blood-bought right to preferential treatment because God favors you. You have a blood-bought right to the good life!
My friend, you have a right to all these blessings not because you are good, but because Jesus shed His blood and qualified you to have them. So don’t let the devil or anyone tell you that you can’t expect to walk in the blessings of God!
