“Melissa, am I not enough?” This was God’s question to me yesterday.
His question was not meant to be an indictment nor an accusation. But it was a reminder of what I possess in Christ. You see, the spirit of rejection was knocking on my door yesterday. Events happened that had left me feeling rejected. Of course the enemy was quick to tell me that I was unworthy, not valuable. I was tempted to get offended, get angry, and allow my heart to shut people out. It was at that moment, the Father asked His very poignant question: “Melissa, am I not enough?”
Because the truth is my value, my worth is based on this truth: “I am accepted in the Beloved!” My value is not defined by my popularity or my job advancement, or my children’s success. My value is determined by the fact the God of the universe gave His life for me, accepted me and called me daughter.
My value is immutable. It does not ebb and flow with my popularity or my success. I am and will forever be, accepted in the Beloved. So yes Abba, “You are more than enough.” Your acceptance is all I need. Your acceptance emboldens me to accept others (even those who reject me) and to overcome offense. I can rest in knowing, God Almighty chose me to be on His Team! He is more than Enough for me.
“to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved.”
Ephesians 1:6 NKJV
