From the GIVER to the RECEIVER

I have come to learn a lot from the GIVER-RECEIVER relationship. Scripture has it that it is that it is more blessed to give than to receive, in this sense it means the blessing flows to the GIVER when the RECEIVER takes up the position to willing fully receive (Acts 20:35)

In our Human relationships its more blessed to give than to receive. But in our relationship with God, its more blessed to receive than to give. You might wonder HOW?

Answer: Enjoyable life in a relationship is experienced if communication is heeded. Communication in our relationship with God is through PRAYER (Philippians 4:6). Enjoyable prayer is the kind where you are not just giving God your heart but you are receiving His as well. Its refreshing to come out of prayer when you have received. Heb4:16 invites us to come boldly unto the grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in the time of need. God is calling us to obtain which means to receive, take, personalize and own. Before ascending back to heaven, Jesus Christ in John20:22 breathed upon His disciples and said to them receive you the Holy spirit but to also introduce them to the great truth of receiving.

When I was wrapping this gift the one person, the one person who saw the ultimate gift was my brother so incase anyone was to know or tell the gift in the wrapper, they would have to inquire form him. Its just the same story with God and the Holyspirit, in our relationship with God we are to engage the Holyspirit so that we can have access/ knowledge of the ultimate gift- then we will know the will of the Father (the GIVER).

So dear RECEIVER open up each day and be ready to receive from God, the wider your heart opens, the more you will receive from the Father. It glorifies God for us to receive all things (John 14:13) Whatever we ask in Jesus name that will He do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.

Yours faithfully

God the GIVER
