Freely Receive, Freely Give

It’s that simple: To keep your faith exchange going, said Evangelist Denby, trust God. After all, He didn’t send Jesus so He could watch us live beneath our spiritual privileges. She continued, Jesus is the cure, not the cause of the pain. It’s as simple as letting go of your past. They key is to know enough of God’s word to speak it to the enemy in whichever circumstance we find ourselves. Really.

Really? Yes, if we trust Him. God won’t bring up the past if we don’t. His Word says:

As far as the east is from the west, [so] far hath he removed our transgressions from us. Psalms 103:12 KJV

What will it take to trust that everything that has occurred in our lives is part of our design, part of God’s masterpiece? To trust that when God looks at us, He sees Himself in us – not the havoc we have wrought in our lives, on this earth, by refusing to receive the blessings He has promised and paid for?

Van Gogh's Digging

Pastor answered this very question Sunday: Dig. Dig your way to the favor of God the way Isaac did. And don’t stop digging ’til you reach Rehoboth. Just remember: When there’s promise on your life, there’s always going to be contention – but that contention is the very thing that will move you to where God wants you to be. As we make room for God, He makes room for us. So, the next time you see the devil say, thank you. Dig?
