Although my father and my mother have forsaken me, yet the Lord will take me up [adopt me as His child].

— Psalm 27:10 (AMPC)

MESSAGE:

There are certain words in the Bible that I like to refer to as “power words,” which simply means that they can be extremely powerful for us if we understand and incorporate them in our lives. One of those power words is receive.

JOYCE MEYER MINISTRIES 24 NOVEMBER 2020 DEVOTIONAL

In our world, we’re accustomed to working for everything. We struggle to “get,” but God wants us to simply “receive” from Him.

Throughout the Bible, we read about receiving from God. Some of the scriptures that teach us to receive are John 1:12; John 1:16; Acts 1:8; Acts 8:17; Acts 10:43; 2 Corinthians 6:1; Galatians 3:2, Colossians 2:6, Hebrews 4:16. Each of these verses specifies something we are to receive from the Lord, and then remind us how important it is for us to receive instead of trying to “get.”

To get is “to obtain by struggle and effort”, whereas to receive is “to become a receptacle and simply take in what is being offered”.

This distinction between getting and receiving helps us understand why so many Christians struggle in their walk with the Lord. They’re trying to get everything from Him when they should simply be asking and receiving.

Today’s scripture is one of my favorites on the subject of receiving. It sounds so simple—and that’s the point—receiving is simple! Jesus came to deliver us from striving, not to invite us to struggle continu¬ously. When we cease our efforts to “get” and learn to ask and receive, then our joy will be truly full. Once we have freely received, then we can freely give.

Prayer Starter:

Father, thank You that I don’t have to work or strive to receive Your help or Your blessings. Please give me the grace I need to simply ask and freely receive, so I can freely give. In Jesus’ name, amen.

The sweetest and biggest thing to ever happen to you is to make a decision to be saved through JESUS CHRIST. If you have not made that decision. Please make that decision now and say ” Lord Jesus forgive me for my sins and have mercy on me, thank you for dying for me on the cross, take me as your son / daughter and be my father. THANK YOU FOR SAVING ME, in JESUS CHRIST NAME AMEN. God bless you.
