When it comes to receiving from God, according to His Word, it’s your move! God’s already moved and He’s waiting on you to step out in faith – make a move, respond to His word!
With God, if you keep moving, He’ll keep moving. You’ll always be moving forward; you can’t lose. However, when you quit moving, or quit speaking His Word, that’s when you start losing.
First Corinthians 4:7 says, “…what do you have that you did not receive?” The way you enjoy the blessings God’s provided for you is simply receive them by faith. It doesn’t matter where you were born or what your status is in life, God created you to enjoy His blessings. You can move from a position of defeat to a position of victory; however, you’ll have to make a move toward God to receive those blessings and benefits by faith.
God’s still God even though you go through trials and tribulations. It doesn’t matter if you’re in the midst of the biggest trial of your life – you’ve still got victory – because your story isn’t over! You still haven’t written the last two words at the end of your story!
When you get to the end of the test or trial, if you’re still in faith – believing God – there’s victory with your name on it!
Some Christians start out believing God, and then they get in the middle of a trial and say “I thought God was going to come through for me, but I guess He’s not.” When believers make that confession, they’ve just quit receiving from, and moving with God because they moved over into the arena of worry, doubt, fear, and unbelief. When they quit moving with God, God quits moving with them! It’s not that He wants to quit; He can’t move with worry, doubt, fear, and unbelief. He moves upon faith filled words. You must make the right moves by believing God and saying what His Word says about your situation.
To keep moving forward, you can’t speak doubt and unbelief and expect to receive from God, and you can’t earn God’s blessings through works. You receive by faith what God’s already done for you. Simply tap into the finished work!
