Who giveth us richly all things to enjoy.
1 Timothy 6:17
At the end of the day, receiving from the Lord boils down to perception and trust. In order to get under the flow of His shockingly abundant provision of life, we must believe that this type of life is available. Many of us have never realized how great our God is, His love for us, and how much the Lord wants to participate in the smallest aspects of our lives. He is often perceived as a far off God who is only involved in our lives in times of crisis or great need, never even noticing His tendency toward blessing and details. There is also that trust thing. We tend to thing that the Lord drives a hard bargain and is after our stuff and our fun. Seeing Him as He is, a lover and a giver, is the liberation that changes the way we live our lives. Here is a powerful word from Spurgeon on this giving tendency of our God.
“Our Lord Jesus is ever giving, and does not for a solitary instant withdraw his hand. As long as there is a vessel of grace not yet full to the brim, the oil shall not be stayed. He is a sun ever-shining; he is manna always falling round the camp; he is a rock in the desert, ever sending out streams of life from his smitten side; the rain of his grace is always dropping; the river of his bounty is ever-flowing, and the well-spring of his love is constantly overflowing. As the King can never die, so his grace can never fail. Daily we pluck his fruit, and daily his branches bend down to our hand with a fresh store of mercy. There are seven feast-days in his weeks, and as many as are the days, so many are the banquets in his years. Who has ever returned from his door unblessed? Who has ever risen from his table unsatisfied, or from his bosom un-emparadised? His mercies are new every morning and fresh every evening. Who can know the number of his benefits, or recount the list of his bounties?”
So do you get it? His branches of bounty and blessing are so full that they are bending down waiting for us to reach out our hand to receive. Have you been to His table yet today? If so, like Spurgeon you can’t have left unsatisfied. This more than enough God has had you in mind all along, when you see Who He is and His love for you, your life of blessing begins.

  1. Haha!!! Wow! Well, you’ll probably never know how much I love this! Yes!!! Since the moment Of my God encounter I honestly can say I knew that all I had was Him. It has not always been easy to trust Him but it has been the only way for me. When I got married, David and I united our faith and the journey together began. It has been unbelievable to see How God continually blesses us. There is an attitude in the body of Christ that sometimes makes people feel as if they must down play or even hide their blessings. I hate that. Why should we apologize for the Lord’s heart of giving? He gives good gifts! Must we apologize for His generosity?!?My Heavenly Father LOVES me and my bridegroom LOVES me and He LOVES to shower and cover me in blessings! My joy cannot be contained! He delights in the welfare of His servants! We have more unexplainable peace and joy in our lives, restored relationships….not to mention the temporal blessings. I know where I came from, where I’ve walked and how I lived without Jesus. And He knows haha!!! Trusting him proves to be the way of living the abundant christian life. It seems as though the more I lean on Him the more He adds to my life. We have peace in the middle of craziness over here because we trust Him, we KNOW that He is faithful.It’s more difficult to avoid the blessings than to just receive them 😀 Oh His grace IS sufficient!! I am on a mission to learn to receive and partake of His love for me-ALL of it! He is pouring and I am drinking! Somehow receiving seems to be a stumbling block for some… But I intend to abide, thrive, and sing with joy in this freedom I have deep in my soul!!! I am in love with the bridegroom and I KNOW He is in love me! Thank you Pastor Frank, hahahahaha!!!!!
