Receive, Then Give

In order to give, you must first receive.  Otherwise, there is nothing to give.  This is true in being sent by FATHER to minister to those with whom you come in contact on a daily basis. 

When I receive revelation from FATHER in the morning, I write to you and share what is relevant for today.  HE knows who reads these writings so I don’t worry about getting HIS Word out to the intended audience.

When FATHER speaks, all of Heaven is there to back HIS Word for its intended purpose because FATHER speaks only out of HIS Divine Intent.  When HE speaks to you and me, we need to realize that Heaven’s resources are there to fulfill whatever HE has spoken.  If HE says it, it is meant to come to pass.  Our unbelief is the only thing that will hinder fulfillment because FATHER has given us that right to refuse HIS blessing.  Why would I refuse anything from FATHER?

In Luke chapter 10, Jesus sends out the seventy:

1 After these things the Lord appointed seventy others also, and sent them two by two before His face into every city and place where He Himself was about to go. 2 Then He said to them, “The harvest truly is great, but the laborers are few; therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest. 3 Go your way; behold, I send you out as lambs among wolves. 4 Carry neither money bag, knapsack, nor sandals; and greet no one along the road. 5 But whatever house you enter, first say, ‘Peace to this house.’ 6 And if a son of peace is there, your peace will rest on it; if not, it will return to you. 7 And remain in the same house, eating and drinking such things as they give, for the laborer is worthy of his wages. Do not go from house to house. 8 Whatever city you enter, and they receive you, eat such things as are set before you. 9 And heal the sick there, and say to them, ‘The kingdom of God has come near to you.’

Those seventy disciples received a directive from Jesus thus they became “sent ones” carrying FATHER’S Divine Intent.  With that Divine Intent came power and authority from Heaven.  They first received in order for them to give.

The results of Jesus’ impartation to the seventy:

17 Then the seventy returned with joy, saying, “Lord, even the demons are subject to us in Your name.”

18 And He said to them, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. 19 Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you. 20 Nevertheless do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rather rejoice because your names are written in heaven.

Jesus told them to rejoice in who they are versus what they were able to do.  Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Colossians chapter 3:

1 Christ’s resurrection is your resurrection too. This is why we are to yearn for all that is above, for that’s where Christ sits enthroned at the place of all power, honor, and authority! 2 Yes, feast on all the treasures of the heavenly realm and fill your thoughts with heavenly realities, and not with the distractions of the natural realm.  TPT

Our focus should be Heavenly-based not the natural realm.  I have no opinion because I realize FATHER’S absolute Truth is the only thing worthy for me to trust in.  When I receive HIS Truth, I have something to minister to others.  When Jesus sent the seventy, they operated according to HIS Word, not their reliance on their own ability.  The more “Heavenly-minded” I am, the more “earthly-good” I become.

When I submit to FATHER, I am able to receive from HIM and walk out HIS directives which promote life, blessing, and prosperity allowing me to fulfill my purpose.  I am to use resources under my control to fulfill HIS Divine Intent, not hoard them up for worldly purposes.  If you knew you were going to physically die within the next 30 days, what possessions would you hold on to?  Why?  What would be your priorities? 

FATHER’S priorities are my priorities.  HIS Truths are my truths.  HIS ways are my ways.  I seek daily to remove any error in my understanding and I recommend you do the same.  I seek to be sifted of all impurities in my life for I want to become HIS full expression to others.  Is there another priority above this pursuit?  I only want to be sent with HIS power and authority, not for any other reason.  I must receive revelation before I can be effective in my words and actions.

I am yoked to Jesus Christ and accept HIS leadership in my life.  His yoke is easy and His burden is light.  What better person to be yoked to in my walk!  I do not question His Words or authority.  I do not devalue His importance in my walk thus I focus on His Words and His priorities.  There are a myriad of other pursuits out there but none of them are life-changing therefore they are of no value to my purpose.  Everything connected to Jesus is forward looking and that is where I am headed as I hope you are as well.  Why dwell in the past?

If Jesus tells me to do something, I am receiving from the Spiritual realm which promotes life and my future in the physical realm.  As I am obedient to do HIS Word in the physical realm, I receive additionally from the Spiritual realm.  We need to understand the flow between the Spiritual and the physical for we are the conduits between the two.
