John 1:12

But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name.
John 1:12

Discouragement. The enemy will often use it to sideline us in our daily walk with the Lord. Sometimes we get our eyes off of Jesus, put off reading His Word, and sideline ourselves.

When discouragement darkens our lives, we begin to focus on our situation, on our burdens, or on our inadequacies. It's not long before we have lost sight of that which we really need; a glimpse of God's perspective.

Have another look at this verse. Have you received Jesus in your life? Then He has given you the right to become a child of God. Your successes don't earn it, your failures can't lose it. It's a gift to those who believe in His name.

This morning, would you join me in acknowledging that God has paid the price for your sin and mine, and has adopted us as His children. Forever His! His love will replace our discouragement with the ultimate encouragement as we walk forward in renewed vision and strength. It's a gift worth remembering every day!
