Sometimes My children hesitate to receive My good gifts with open hands. Feelings of false guilt creep in, telling them they don’t deserve to be richly blessed. This is non-sense thinking, because no one deserves anything from Me. My kingdom is not about earning and deserving; it’s about believing and receiving.
When a child of Mine balks at accepting My gifts, I am deeply grieved. When you receive my Abundant blessings with a grateful heart, I rejoice. My pleasure in giving and your pleasure in receiving flow together in joyous harmony.
Psalm 23:5; John 3:16; Luke 11:9011; Romans 8:32
Jesus, thank you for the reminder that it is about believing and receiving. My heart still struggles with the desire to please you my earning your blessings. The truth is, I want to enjoy these gifts, being reminded that it actually grieves you when I don’t receive it helps to alleviate this false guilt. I thank you for an amazing day of blessings. I desire to pursue you. Thanks for always listening.
