We are not waiting on God. He is waiting on us. He is waiting on us to get in the right position. A position to receive from Him. We must see God correctly if we are going to have the faith to receive from Him. God wants...
“ What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 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” Romans 8:31-32?
As a child growing up, I saw God as this distant superior creator who was watching every move I made ready for me to make a mistake so He could judge me. Because of this wrong view of God, I grew up under much fear and little desire to be close to Him. My perception of God started changing at 15 years old when I encountered His love for the first time at a church service. I left the church that night a new person. I left light as a feather, with no worries or fear. I left loved. From that day forward knowing Him and making Him known to others became my life’s mission.
As I dove into the Bible I started realizing God’s character is one of love. As a matter of fact, He is love (1 John 4:8). I discovered God has made humanity the recipient of His love and nothing we do can mess that up. His love for all of us is unconditional. I found in the scriptures that God is not only God, but Father God. He wants to know us on a personal level. He sees us as His children (Romans 8:15). As a good father, God wants us to enjoy this life He has given us. He desires for us to live life to the fullest, accomplishing every dream He has placed in our hearts. He wants to give us every desire we have (Psalm 37:4).
“If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him” Matthew 7:11
We are not waiting on God. He is waiting on us. He is waiting on us to get in the right position. A position to receive from Him. We must see God correctly if we are going to have the faith to receive from Him. God wants us coming to Him as children asking of Him the things we desire and being fully persuaded that He hears us and will deliver at the perfect time (Matthew 18:2-3).
So, I would like to challenge you. I want to challenge you to first give Jesus a chance in your life. Ask Him to reveal Himself to you. When you do this get ready to experience love, joy and peace like never before. Second, ask God to help you discover the desires He has placed in your heart. How can you ask God for something you do not know you want? When doing this, do not ask Him for your needs. He has already promised to supply all of your needs according to His riches (Philippians 4:19). Thank Him for meeting your needs, ask Him for your dreams. Thirdly, give Him thanks for giving you what you have asked for. Giving thanks will edify you and please God because it is an action of faith. Lastly, get ready to receive God’s abundant supply of blessings!
