Wednesday Daily Devotional By Pastor David Okoye (Ambassadors Diet 5th October 2016) – Your Ability To Receive

Share this story:

“If you don’t know what you are doing, pray to the father. He loves
to help. You’ll get His help and won’t be condescended to when you ask
for it. Ask boldly, believing without a second thought. People who worry
their prayers are like wind-whipped waves. Don’t think you are going to
receive anything from the master that way, adrift at sea, keeping all
your options open” James 1:5-8 MSG

I love the Word of God. It shows us where we are.

This tells you as a
God- child that God knows who and where you are.

Many wonder why they
can’t seem to receive from the Lord in spite of their giving and
prayers. I am often asked “Pastor, why can’t I receive from the Lord, I
do everything the Word says. I have even prayed, fasted, and sowed seeds
for this but God does not seem to answer or even hear me?”

The reason
is often simple; unbelief. You see, your ability to receive from God is
not a function of your strength or your prayers; it is a function of
your heart. Unbelief does not mean a person does not believe in God. It
simply refers to the inability to believe the Word of God.

Unbelief
is not strong will against the Word of God. The ability to receive,
understand and believe the Word of God is not a function of your human
mind but of your spirit.

The Holy Ghost gives you the ability to receive
the Word of God. Little wonder the Apostle prayed for the Ephesian
Church that the eyes of their understanding might be enlightened, so
they could receive the Word of God.

It is never by your might or by your
power but by His Spirit. Never be too competent to seek God in your
affairs. When God wants to intervene in your affairs, He does not come
looking for you. Instead, He comes around you, so if you seek Him, you
will find Him.

Look at Zaccheaus in the scriptures, even though Jesus was
headed to his house, He didn’t go directly to his house instead
Zaccheaus had to seek him out.

Never give God second place in your heart
or life. You cannot make much progress that way.

PRAYER
Father, I learn to seek you first in all that I do. I refuse unbelief. I am a doer of the Word and of the Work.
