Open, dear one. Open up and receive. So many of our days are spent pouring out for others. But, it’s okay to accept goodness in your life when you serve a God who is nothing but good.
If there is a fence built due to hesitation, tear it down. Let it not lay a siege around your heart and your life. Our Father is wonderful, and He does wonderful things for His children: “If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?” (Matthew 7:11).
The epistle reminds us, “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning” (James 1:17).
When God is so good and so willing to give, it is okay to receive from Him. It’s okay to open the door and welcome God’s goodness and His beautiful gifts into your life.
Yes, into your life. Don’t let lies and false ideas convince you that somehow you are different. Somehow you are unworthy. Somehow you have to remain guarded against this hope because this is not for you.
Yes, this is for you, too. To Him, you are worth it. To God, you are loved and are His treasured possession. And as God does, He loves to bless His own. The Bible tells us to “Delight thyself also in the Lord: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart” (Psalm 37:4).
Yes, He freely gave for our salvation (John 3:16; Romans 5:8). And yes, He gives us His Holy Spirit for our daily living (John 14:26). But God also gives goodness, desires, and things that put a smile on His children’s faces.
Put your guard down and welcome the goodness of the Father in your life today.
