God Is Satisfied With You

“to the praise of His glorious grace and favor, which He so freely bestowed on us in the Beloved [His Son, Jesus Christ].” EPHESIANS‬ ‭1:6‬ ‭AMP‬‬

Do you sometimes wonder if God is satisfied with you?

Actually, the question you should ask is not whether God is satisfied with you. The question you should ask is whether God is satisfied with Jesus and His finished work at the cross. And the answer is this: He is completely satisfied!

At the cross, your acceptance is found. There, Jesus cried out with His last breath, “It is finished!” (John 19:30). The work is complete. The full punishment for all your sins was exacted on Jesus at the cross. God will never punish you the believer, not because He has gone soft on sin, but because all your sins have already been punished in the body of Jesus. God’s holiness and His justice are now on your side!

Today, God is not assessing you based on what you have or have not done. He is assessing you based on what Jesus has done. Is God satisfied with Jesus today? Yes, of course He is. Then, to the same extent that God is satisfied with Jesus, He is satisfied with you because He has placed you in Jesus the Beloved! How can you not have His acceptance, favor, help and blessings?
