By redemption, God gave the believer ‘freely’ to enjoy all that makes for a good, glorious and great life Rms. 8:32. In essence, the believer was brought out of the realm of begging in life Psa. 37:25. But we must understand that they are only free by availability, access is by meeting with required demands Deu. 28:1-2; Mat. 11:28-29. Remember, God is a God of covenant, and committed to keep His covenant Psa. 89:34. Therefore, access to every provision is on covenant platform, by complying with covenant demands Jer. 33:21-26. In essence, we don’t beg for things in this kingdom, we accept covenant responsibilities.

By redemption, the believer is ordained to fulfill his days on earth Isa. 65:20; Psa. 91:16. We don’t beg for long life in the kingdom, we serve to live long Exo. 23:25-26.
Therefore, God is not looking for whom to use, He is looking for whom to make Mat. 4:19. Remember, serving God is not about being full of activity, but advancing God’s kingdom Mat. 6:33.
