He has enabled you // 05-01-22

“May you be filled with joy, always thanking the Father. He has enabled you to share in the inheritance that belongs to his people, who live in the light.” Colossians‬ ‭1:11-12‬ ‭NLT‬‬

To enable is to make possible; to give someone the authority or means to do something! God has enabled us to share in the inheritance of eternal life; He has made it possible for us to be forgiven, to be made right, and to be set free. He has provided the means for us to experience His goodness and mercy, to know our identity as His much loved children, and to have the assurance of a home in heaven. He has given us the authority of His name to speak and live to His praise and glory. We will never deserve any of that, can never earn that knowledge or position, it has only been achieved and enabled by the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ! We have so much to thank Him for, no matter what the present struggle, and there is so much joy to be found in Him! Lord, thank You for saving me, and for giving me such an amazing inheritance. Help me to live in the light today, from a posture of thankfulness and worship, understanding that I belong to You! Amen 🙌🏼😊
