Why is it so hard to RECEIVE sometimes!?! Many of us have walls and guards about receiving because we anticipate something hurtful. You are not alone. Many of us have experienced being hurt, betrayed, or rejected by others in the past. We lack vision and lack believing that it can ever be different, so we go without for years, BUT are STARVING TO RECEIVE LOVE and to be FILLED!
GOOD NEWS!! With God, we can ASK, and it will be given to us, we can SEEK, and find what we NEED, and KNOCK and the door of His LOVE will be open! Receiving can feel AMAZING when we believe God! We can receive His LOVE, His STRENGTH, His POWER, His LIGHT! Learning to receive from God open-handed instead of tight-fisted changes EVERYTHING!
Matthew 7:7-8 (NKJV)
7 “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.
