WALKING IN THE LIGHT OF GOD’S WORD.
Receiving from God is easy; because God says that His yoke is easy and His burden light. When you try to work with God in ways that are at variance with His Word, you will find your walk very hard and uninteresting. Walking with God has to be in the light of His Word. God is eternally committed to His Word; learning to secure God’s commitment is learning to stay with God’s Word. Receiving from God is something very exciting; but, it is heavily conditioned by the allowances of God’s Word. If you truly seek to receive from God; the Bible says in James 1:6; that, you should ask in faith without wavering, without being double minded. There is nothing that makes you unfit to receive from God as much as being double minded.
Receiving from God is receiving by faith and faith is relaxing the mind on the allowances of God’ Word. Many cannot receive from God; , they have learned to relax their minds. They have their minds filed with their own ideas of getting the issue sorted out and they expect God to do it their own way. But what saith the scriptures –
“As thou knoweth not what is the way of the spirit, nor how the bones do grow in the womb of her that is with child: even so thou knowest not the works of God who maketh all” Ecclesiastes 11:5.
Naaman the leper; in his quest to be healed, came before Elisha with all manner of ideas of how he expected his leprosy to be cured. He was so full of ideas that he almost missed out on the miracle working power if God. It was only when he succumbed to hearken to the Word of God from the mouth of Elisha that his situation turned around. Until you let go of your ideas and wholly submit to God’s divine “prescription”, you will never be able to make a head way. If you feel you know it all; then you don’t really need God. The solution comes in your readiness to stay open to God and His ways. In quest for a divine intervention; Jehoshaphat king of Judah came before the Lord proclaiming –
“Neither know we what to do, but our eyes are upon thee”.
