21 Day Devotion Day 7: Accept It

This is day 7 of our 21 Days of Prayer, Fasting, and Personal Devotion. The first day was on Sunday, March 26th and we will celebrate on the last day, Easter Sunday, April 16th.

Matthew 11:14  And if you are willing to accept it, John himself is Elijah who was to come.

Jesus told the disciples that they each got to decide whether John the Baptist was the greatest prophet of the Old Covenant or not. They got to decide whether or not John the Baptist was in fact the prophet sent by God.

Jesus was not giving them authority over John; instead he was teaching his disciples that they could forfeit a blessing by not accepting what God establishes as truth.  

God won’t force you to walk in your calling. He won’t jam his blessings into your life. He won’t make someone be a Christ follower. You have to accept these things. They need to be received.

God’s identity and eternal are unchanged. His love and good will is never ending. He wants to pour his Spirit out on all flesh. But just like in a service where one person can be getting overwhelmed by Holy Spirit while the person standing next to them has no awareness of God’s presence, we need to be actively engaging God to receive all he has for us.

If you are willing to accept it, God has a solution for every problem you are facing. If you are willing to accept it, God has a purpose for your life that will leave a legacy long after you pass. If you are willing to accept it right now, God has you seated with Christ in heavenly places.

If you are willing to accept it, your call to the secret place is an invitation to the treasury of heaven.
