RECEIVING FROM GOD 1

 
 🎧 Audio Version☞ http://bit.ly/2flylpY

Matt 7:7 [KJV]
Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you


Victory and his wife needed a new car because their car was now old. He discussed this with his wife Ella:

Victory: I think we need a new car, this one is old. I think we should sell it and add our savings to raise the money for the new car.
Ella: why don’t we rather sell this old car and sow the money as a seed for another car, then we won’t have to touch our savings.
Victory: That’s a lovely idea.
Victory and Ella sold their old car, packaged the money in an envelope and dropped it in the offering bowl as 'seed' for a new car. Months went by but they did not get a new car.

As children of God, the way to receive from God our father is by asking him. It is very good to give to the Lord, and we reap when we sow to the work of God in love, but we must never think that the reason we receive from God is because we have given him something first. No, having this mindset shows we do not understand the grace of God. We love God because He first loved us. We can receive from God and give to His work because He first gave us all things (in Christ) even before we ever realized we needed anything.

As important as giving is, it is not the primary way to receiving from God. The way to receive from God is by asking. God did not say ‘ye have not, because ye give not’, He says ‘ye have not, because ye ask not’ (see James 4:3. Also read James 1:6).

Go into today knowing that giving is good. But the first key to receiving from God is asking. Ask God in the name of Jesus for your needs today and watch God supply them through His riches in Christ.
