Since God’s love is unconditional, most people believe that all a person must do to receive his unconditional love is to “let go and let God”. Right?
WRONG!!! WRONG!!! WRONG!!!
In fact, most people would be hard pressed to define just what should be ‘let go’, in order to ‘let God’.
Think about it.
Let’s say you are praying for something, or somebody or for some special event to take place. Your heart knows you don’t have it yet, and you believe you don’t have it yet, and this mind-set causes you to partition God’s throne numerous times. Finally, if you never receive that which you were praying for, or if it’s delayed, you might resort to coercing God; such as not answering His ‘phone calls’; becoming judgmental and mean-spirited towards others who seem to prosper effortlessly; or just giving up all together.
Well, there’s a lesson for you to learn.
Always remember when praying for something believe and know in your heart that you already have it. In other words, pray in faith. Otherwise, your ego will take over and spread doubt in your heart. If what you are praying for is in accordance with God’s will for your life, that means that the two of you are desiring the same thing…you are One in the Spirit…AND you will receive that prayer request in God’s timing. Your ego, aka the accuser, is never your friend. Your ego Eases God Out! Check out what the Bible says about your heart (where Ego lives.)
“The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately sick; who can understand it?” Jeremiah 17:9
So STOP walking in doubt and walk by FAITH!
Another scripture that is befitting for this situation is as follows:
“Who dares accuse us whom God has chosen for his own? No! He is the one who has forgiven us and given us right standing with himself.” Romans 8:33
Just remember, you can do all things in Christ who strengthens you!
And yet another scripture:
“No, for the Scriptures tell us that for his sake we must be ready to face death at every moment of the day—we are like sheep awaiting slaughter; but despite all this, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ who (unconditionally) loved us enough to die for us. For I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from His (unconditional) love. Death can’t, and life can’t. The angels won’t, and all the powers of hell itself cannot keep God’s (unconditional) love away. Our fears (ego) for today, our worries about tomorrow, or where we are—high above the sky, or in the deepest ocean—nothing will ever be able to separate us from the (unconditional) love of God demonstrated by our Lord Jesus Christ when He died for us.” Romans 8:36-39
So always pray in faith, remembering that in most cases, we have not because we ask not in accordance with God’s will for our lives. God’s word says to ask and you shall receive. We all must come into the reasoning of understanding that God’s universe lacks nothing. It is bountiful. And God truly believes it is better to give than to receive. We cannot out-give God.
Scripture Lesson: “When we were utterly helpless with no way of escape, Christ came at just the right time and died for us sinners who had no use for him. Even if we were good, we really wouldn’t expect anyone to die for us, though, of course, that might be barely possible. But God showed his great (unconditional) love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners. And since by his blood he did all this for us as sinners, how much more will he do for us now that he has declared us not guilty?” Romans 5:6-8
