For those that can believe! Mark 9:23 - Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.
Don't deny the power of God! 2 Timothy 3:5 - Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
He is the God of IMPOSSIBILITIES! Mark 10:27 - And Jesus looking upon them said, With men it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible.
There are some who have a form of godliness, but deny the power thereof. Don't do this! The Word of God says "From such turn away."
Want - Receive - Believe - for EVERYTHING that our Lord God wants for you, and has in store for you. He has exceeding and abundantly above ALL that we could ever ask or think in store for you; Don't deny this!
Don't deny Him the pleasure of lavishing upon you ALL that He wants for you because of unbelief, doubt or denial of what He has planned.
There are spiritual gifts some people deny. Why? The Apostle Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 12:1 -
12 Now about the gifts of the Spirit, brothers and sisters, I do not want you to be uninformed. 2 You know that when you were pagans, somehow or other you were influenced and led astray to mute idols. 3 Therefore I want you to know that no one who is speaking by the Spirit of God says, “Jesus be cursed,” and no one can say, “Jesus is Lord,” except by the Holy Spirit.
4 There are different kinds of gifts, but the same Spirit distributes them. 5 There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. 6 There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work.
7 Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good. 8 To one there is given through the Spirit a message of wisdom, to another a message of knowledge by means of the same Spirit, 9 to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by that one Spirit, 10 to another miraculous powers, to another prophecy, to another distinguishing between spirits, to another speaking in different kinds of tongues, and to still another the interpretation of tongues.11 All these are the work of one and the same Spirit, and he distributes them to each one, just as he determines.
Why would a child of God deny themselves any of these gifts freely given to us by the Holy Spirit?
There are natural gifts, i.e. singing, the gift of poetry, craftsmanship, writing, athleticism. Yet there are some who never utilize these gifts to encourage or help someone else or even for themselves. They let the enemy talk them out of using them:
You'll never be good enough!
So and so does that better than you!
Stop trying, it's not going to make a difference anyway!
That little thing, wait until you have more or until it gets bigger and better!
THE DEVIL IS A LIE!
Start with whats in your hands now and despise not the day of small beginnings.
Then, there are those who deny material blessings/gifts from God because they think it's more Holy to do so. They think they can't be or shouldn't be well off, or lack for nothing.
Why? False Humility!?
Abraham, Issac and Jacob were rich! No, they were wealthy!
Solomon was wealthy!
Having material possessions doesn't mean you aren't saved. It doesn't mean you don't love God. What it means to a saved, sanctified, redeemed, born-again, blood-washed believer who has not let his riches corrupt his heart is, it shows the unbeliever God is with them, it shows the unbeliever God has provided and blessed in such a way that now they are able to bless others; they are able to advance and fund Godly Kingdom agendas; they are able to testify to the unbeliever who their source is and where their help comes from.
Don't deny Him! Find it in your heart to RECEIVE.
We were made by Him, For Him
Revelation 4:11 - Thou are worthy, O LORD, to receive glory and honor and power: for thou hast created all things, and for they pleasure they are and were created.
Give our Creator the pleasure of gifting you with ALL He wants for you.
Father in the name of Jesus I pray that the one reading this grants you permission to give unto them everything you have in store for them. Your promises are yea and Amen. I pray that their capacity to receive more of You and more from You be expanded tremendously in this season. You are the God of impossibilities, exceeding & abundantly, You tell us to expand our tent pegs, to COME UP hither, to be made free. So may the reader of this post receive ALL that you want and have for them: every spiritual gift and every natural gift in Jesus name Amen!
