Freely Give Us All Things?
ROMANS 8:32 NKJ 32 He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?
Most people approach prayer as an exercise in convincing God to help. They think they must twist God's arm, or promise to do something, in order to get God to give them anything.
The New Testament paints a different picture. God not only is a willing giver, but has already given! He is not holding back on us!
When He gave us Jesus, along with Him He gave us everything we could ever need.
"Why then," you may ask, "do I not have what I need?"
Friend, there is a great difference between something being given and something being received.
Many people have been unaware recipients of great good, but until they became aware of it and took the necessary steps to properly receive their bounty, it did them no good.
You can be entitled to some inheritance, or other windfall, without knowing it. You can even know it, but without following the proper procedure, not possess and enjoy it.
So it is with the things of God. Proper procedure must be followed. There are instructions on how to receive. But the instructions are clear and easy to follow. You will find them in the New Testament.
1 TIMOTHY 6:17 NKJ 17 Command those who are rich in this present age not to be haughty, nor to trust in uncertain riches but in the living God, who gives us richly all things to enjoy.
God gives us richly all things to enjoy!
Don't judge God's generosity by what you have, or have not, received. Find out the instructions from the Bible, and receive all that God has provided for you.
SAY THIS: God freely gave me all things in Christ. Now I will learn to be a receiver of God's blessings.
