Who’s Pushing Your Buttons?
Who’s on your side?
Are there times when you feel lost at sea?
Who lifts you up when you need it?
In Steven Furtick’s book, “Crash the Chatterbox”, he compares our “waiting for acceptance” to the tv show “The Voice”. Once the judges push the button and turn their chairs around, you have a good chance of being accepted.
Have friends, family or co-workers neglected to “push the button”?
Do they acknowledge you, lift you up and care for you?
There is One who absolutely adores you. In fact, He knew you before you were in the womb. Before you were born, He set you apart. (Jeremiah 1:4-5)
As Steven says in his book, “Before Jeremiah could do anything to merit God’s acceptance, He hit the big button.” God’s love for us is not based on something we did. There’s nothing you need to do or be to “earn” God’s love.
There are no try-outs.
You simply have to accept this gift of love…Jesus.
No contest to win.
Nothing to be compared to.
Insecurities can be very poisonous – God loves us, insecurities and all.
So, my friend, if you’re thinking you have to be 100% perfect before God accepts you, it’s simply not so.
His arms are wide open to accept you just as you are.
