“To this John replied, ‘A person can receive only what is given them from heaven.’” (Joh 3:27)
All we have and all we are comes from the hand of the Father. All we achieve and receive comes from heaven. No one can boast and say that they have achieved this and that, for without God we would have nothing.
A gift can only be of value to a person who is willing to receive it. What is the position of our heart when it comes to receiving His gifts at work? If we assume that we are to operate in our own strength at work and that God is not really interested, there is a consequence. There will be gifts He has to give us that we do not receive because our hearts and prayers are not positioned to receive.
Quick Prayer: All I have is from Your hand. Amen.
