Ephesians 1:5 having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, 6 to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved. 7 In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace

There are some of us who seek acceptance from outside sources, not realizing we’ve already been accepted by God through Christ. Because of negative events in our lives and because we haven’t received God’s acceptance, we’ll seek a perverted form of acceptance. We’ll join gangs, stay in toxic relationships, or intentionally have a baby just to be accepted by someone.

Once we truly get an understanding of our God-given acceptance, we’ll never need to force someone to accept us or work tirelessly to get people to like us. We’ll realize His acceptance is enough.

Meditate on these scriptures continuously until you’re convinced that God has accepted you and His acceptance is enough.
