Accept means to receive. Accept also has a slightly different meaning. It means to believe something to be a reality.
Some families have a hard time accepting that their loved ones got deployed to the Middle East. Others cannot accept the immature selfish behavior of their chronological adult family members.
Family members can’t do anything about their loved ones in the military except pray for them and support them through cards, letters and packages. Likewise, none of us can do anything about the actions of those who ‘bug’ us except pray for them, place them in God’s hands, step back and observe. We can only be of help to anyone if and when they accept their need of our or anyone’s help. Until then, we can only make suggestions.
As Christians, we learn to accept Jesus into our hearts and lives. We learn to lean on Him for guidance and protection. Sometimes we have to plead the blood of Christ over a circumstance in our lives. But, because we have accepted Him, He will always be there for us.
