Get Into Position To Receive!

I was viewing a video about the Alaskan wilderness when one of the first things I saw was a huge Grizzly bear standing in the cold Alaskan waters waiting for his meal.  Suddenly a salmon jumped into his mouth.  Dinner had been served.  How awesome was that!

Right then I heard God say, “If I will provide for this Grizzly what more will I do for you?”

 

The Grizzly got into position to be blessed.  Once in position he stood, waited and received.

 

“What you see and what you hear depends a great deal on where you are standing…”.     C.S. Lewis (The Magician’s Nephew)

Where are you standing?  Are you standing where God wants you to stand?  Are you in position to receive all of  what God wants you to have?  Can you see God has made a way for you?

Often times we will look at everything and everyone for assistance.  Our conversations with God usually begin with the words “how”, “if”, and “when”.

Has God told you to do something and you haven’t because you don’t know “how” He will accomplish it?

Has God told you to say something and you haven’t because you don’t know “if” they are the right words to say?

Has God told you to trust Him and you haven’t because you don’t know “when” the answer will come?

Matthew 6:27-34 (MSG Bible)

27-29“Has anyone by fussing in front of the mirror ever gotten taller by so much as an inch? All this time and money wasted on fashion-do you think it makes that much difference? Instead of looking at the fashions, walk out into the fields and look at the wildflowers. They never primp or shop, but have you ever seen color and design quite like it? The ten best-dressed men and women in the country look shabby alongside them.

The Grizzly bear has no worries.  He stands in position to receive.

30-33“If God gives such attention to the appearance of wildflowers-most of which are never even seen-don’t you think he’ll attend to you, take pride in you, do his best for you? What I’m trying to do here is to get you to relax, to not be so preoccupied with getting, so you can respond to God’s giving. People who don’t know God and the way he works fuss over these things, but you know both God and how he works. Steep your life in God-reality, God-initiative, God-provisions. Don’t worry about missing out. You’ll find all your everyday human concerns will be met.

The Grizzly bear has no worries.  He stands in position to receive.

34“Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don’t get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes.
