The Wonder of It All

I plant My Word in your heart that you may grow a heart of love–My Love. The kind of love that does not take–it gives. And gives and gives and gives.

“You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide; so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, he may give it to you. This I command you, to love one another.” John 15:16-17

My Love never tires or strains–it remains constant. Therefore, your ‘crop’ will produce fruit that lasts, remains and doesn’t strain. So many struggle and try so hard, as if fighting their way through life. I can do nothing more to take this away from you, for I have already done it all. I took it once for all, that I might live, to give My all.

Do you see?

Do you believe?

Then receive.

Do not strive to add to what I have already completed

It will negate the gift, for you cannot receive what you do not believe is yours to receive, and if you truly did believe, then you would have received.

For it was given

And, it was completed

So receive it

It is yours to receive–believe it!

Now, receive it to give.

“Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you receive it, and you will.” Mark 11:24

“‘–Who then will offer willingly, consecrating himself today to the Lord?’ Then the heads of fathers’ houses made their freewill offerings, as did also the leaders of the tribes, the commanders of thousands and of hundreds, and the officers over the king’s work. They gave for the service of the house of God–” I Chronicles 29:5b-7a

“Then the people rejoiced because these had given willingly, for with a whole heart they had offered freely to the Lord; David the king also rejoiced greatly.” I Chronicles 29:9

“When you vow a vow to God, do not delay paying it; for he has no pleasure in fools. Pay what you vow. It is better that you should not vow than that you should vow and not pay. Let not your mouth lead you into sin, and do not say before the messenger that it was a mistake; why should God be angry at your voice, and destroy the work of your hands?” Ecclesiastes 5:4-6

“They utter mere words; with empty oaths they make covenants; so judgment springs up like poisonous weeds in the furrows of the field.” Hosea 10:4

“You shall give to him (the poor man) freely, and your heart shall not be grudging when you give to him; because for this the Lord your God will bless you in all your work and in all that you undertake. for the poor will never cease out of the land; therefore I command you, you shall open wide your hand to your brother, to the needy and to the poor, in the land.” Deuteronomy 15:10-11

“Thine O Lord, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty; for all that is in the heavens and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, O Lord, and thou art exalted as head above all. Both riches and honor come from thee, and thou rulest over all. In thy hand are power and might; and in thy hand it is to make great and to give strength to all. And now we thank thee, our God, and praise thy glorious name.” I Chronicles 29:11-13

“O Lord, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, our fathers, keep for ever such purposes and thoughts in the hearts of thy people, and direct their hearts toward thee.” I Chronicles 29:18
