A Willing Receiver

I have no Plan B.  Being led by THE SPIRIT is my only plan.  Jesus came to show us what our relationship with Our Heavenly Father should be.

In John chapter 17, Jesus spoke:

20 “I do not pray for these alone, but also for those who will believe in Me through their word; 21 that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me. 22 And the glory which You gave Me I have given them, that they may be one just as We are one: 23 I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me.

24 “Father, I desire that they also whom You gave Me may be with Me where I am, that they may behold My glory which You have given Me; for You loved Me before the foundation of the world. 25 O righteous Father! The world has not known You, but I have known You; and these have known that You sent Me. 26 And I have declared to them Your name, and will declare it, that the love with which You loved Me may be in them, and I in them.”

Jesus spoke the above prayer which is the absolute Truth.  FATHER desires HIS Love be in us as well.  HE is the greater and we are the lesser thus it is HIM who brings forth blessing and prosperity in our lives.

The previous writings concerning the tithe is to provide each of us the revelation of Holiness by acknowledging FATHER’S ownership thus affirming our relationship with HIM.  Every time I tithe, I acknowledge FATHER’S ownership of every aspect of my life.  I actively submit to that ownership by giving the firstfruits of my labor and increase.

FATHER is not reluctant to respond to our willingness to give for HE wishes to give us favor in all areas of our life.  We should not be reluctant to accept this favor in whatever form it comes to us.  We need to be “receivers” as well as givers and expect blessings and prosperity to come our way.  It is written in Hebrews chapter 11:

6 But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.

We need to have faith in receiving as well as giving.  It is not FATHER’S desire for the wicked to have all the resources but rather it is HIS Divine Intent that the Sons and Daughters be stewards over the resources on earth.  After all, the wicked have no interest in establishing FATHER’S Kingdom on earth.  We need to expect FATHER’S rewards but it requires us to walk in faith.

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Philippians chapter 4:

17 Not that I seek the gift, but I seek the fruit that abounds to your account.

Yes, we have an account in Heaven which rewards those who give with a pure heart.  In Deuteronomy chapter 15, FATHER spoke:

4 … there may be no poor among you; for the LORD will greatly bless you in the land which the LORD your God is giving you to possess as an inheritance— 5 only if you carefully obey the voice of the LORD your God, to observe with care all these commandments which I command you today.

FATHER has not changed HIS mind concerning the poor.  It is HIS desire for those who walk according to HIS Word to be blessed and prosper.  HE may use you or me to be instruments of HIS blessing so don’t be surprised if HE calls upon you and/or me to be a blessing to others.

FATHER wants blessing and prosperity to flow from Heaven THROUGH you and me.  We must not hinder that flow by being reluctant to receive HIS favor.  As we are found faithful in a little, we will rise (qualify) to the next level of giving and receiving.  Let us not hinder HIS plan of expansion but let us embrace it and be an integral part of it.  Now is the time to be a partaker of HIS Divine nature.
