You're Qualified Because of Jesus

But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God and righteousness and sanctification and redemption. 1 Corinthians 1:30 

What are we supposed to do when the devil accuses us of having done wrong and tells us that we don’t deserve God’s blessings? 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,” again, 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. Now, on your own merit, you do not qualify. That’s because without Jesus, there is nothing good in you that can qualify you.

But with Jesus, your disqualification becomes your qualification for the underserved, unearned and unmerited blessings of God. And because God puts your life in Jesus (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.

Friends, 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.
