OPEN AND RECEIVE

Sir Godfrey Gregg D.Div

Receive All He Has For You

“Look from the place where thou art, northward, and southward, and eastward, and westward: for all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it” (Genesis 13:14-15).

No instinct can be put in you by the Holy Ghost but He purposes to fulfill. Let your faith then rise and soar away and claim all the land you can discover.

All you can apprehend in the vision of faith is your own. Look as far as you can, for it is all yours. All that you long to be a Christian, all that you long to do for God, are within the possibilities of faith. Then come, still closer, and with your Bible before you, and your soul open to all the influences of the Spirit, let your whole being receive the baptism of His presence; and as He opens your understanding to see all His fulness, believe He has it all for you. Accept for yourself all the promises of His word, all the desires He awakens within you, all the possibilities of what you may be as a follower of Jesus. All the land you see is given to you.

The actual provisions of His grace come from the inner vision. He who puts the instinct in the bosom of yonder bird to cross the continent in search of summer sunshine in the Southern climate is too good to receive it, and just as surely as He has put the instinct in its breast, so has He also put the balmy breezes and the vernal sunshine yonder to meet it when it arrives.

He who breathes into our hearts the heavenly hope, will not deceive or fail us when we press forward to its realization.

“And they found he had said unto them” (Luke 22:13).

WAITING WITH PATIENCE

Sir Godfrey Gregg D.Div

“Rest in theĀ Lord, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.” (Psalm 37:7).

Have you prayed and prayed and waited and waited, and still there is no manifestation?

Are you tired of seeing nothing move? Are you just at the point of giving it all up? Perhaps you have not waited in the right way? This would take you out of the right place the place where He can meet you.

“With patience wait” (Romans 8:25).

Patience takes away worry. He said He would come, and His promise is equal to His presence.

Patience takes away your weeping. Why feel sad and despondent? He knows your need better than you do, and His purpose in waiting is to bring more glory out of it all.

Patience takes away self-works. The work He desires is that you “believe” (John 6:29), and when you believe, you may then know that all is well.

Patience takes away all want. Your desire for the thing you wish is perhaps stronger than your desire for the will of God to be fulfilled in its arrival.

Patience takes away all weakening. Instead of having the delaying time, a time of letting go, know that God is getting a larger supply ready and must get you ready too.

Patience takes away all wobbling. “Make me stand upon my standing” (Daniel 8:18). God’s foundations are steady; and when His patience is within, we are steady while we wait.

Patience gives worship. A praiseful patience sometimes “long-suffering with joyfulness” (Colossians 1:11) is the best part of it all. “Let (all these phases of) patience have her perfect work” (James 1:4), while you wait, and you will find great enrichment.

We have waited for a long time and seems like nothing is happening, but with patience continue to wait in hope of that glorious day as it approaches coming like a mighty rushing wind and your life will not be the same. Because God is waiting patiently for that day to work in your life with a special anointing and when it happens the Bride of Christ will rejoice in the fulfillment of the Word. Having oil in your lamp is time to go out to meet your husband. Hallelujah
