Theme For Jerry Savelle Devotional 25 June 2019 – ARE YOU QUALIFIED TO RECEIVE?
The young lions lack and suffer hunger; but those who seek the Lord shall not lack any good thing (Psalm 34:10 NKJV).
We already know that God is a good God who has promised to provide you with every good thing. However, to qualify to receive this promise, it is necessary that you seek Him. To seek God means to simply seek His face and intimacy with Him.
God is ready and willing to give you good things, but it is your responsibility to seek Him first. Doing so will put you n a position to receive what He has for you.
Many believers wonder why good things never seem to happen to them. They expect God to do His part, yet they are not doing their part. The Bible says, “Trust in the Lord, and do good; dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness. Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart” (Psalm 37:3-4 NKJV).
You have to get to the place where you qualify to receive the good things God wants to give you. When you seek Him, trust Him, and delight yourself in Him, then it becomes His responsibility to bring you the good things that will satisfy the desires of you heart.
If you start to pursue the things you want in life, rather than pursuing God, you will disqualify yourself from the promises. So, seek God’s face—not His hand. When you pursue intimacy with God, you will qualify yourself to receive all that He has promised. And the best part is, you will not lack any good thing.
Confession: My God is a good God who wants to give me the desires of my heart. I make the decision today to seek Him and to delight myself only in Him. And as I do, I rejoice in knowing that I am qualified to receive what He has promised in His Word.
