Topic: Believe And Receive [TREM Devotional Thursday May 24, 2018]
“He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?” Romans 8:32
Revelation 21:8 says “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death”. Topping the list of these bad guys are the fearful. Have you been fearful before? Have you ever been unbelieving? So, if the unbelieving would go to hell, you are going. The fearful, the unbelieving, the liars; they will find themselves in the lake of fire.
But look at John 20:19. “Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and stood in the midst, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you.” So, all the disciples should go to hell because they were afraid. They didn’t believe. Thomas didn’t believe. But when Jesus came, what did He give them? He gave them peace. He gave them peace because He is for us.
He has paid for and freely given us all things. God is for you. Is there anything you need? Whatever is a thing, there is an anointing to receive it, as long as it’s a thing. He who spared not His Own Son….
Beloved, He gave Him to us! Therefore, we are entitled to free things. That thing that is difficult is free. I tell you to remove all stops and speed breakers. Release your faith and believe. It could be a health challenge; it could be a financial challenge, a ministry challenge or a marital challenge. It could be emotional or academic! Whatever it is! It is available in Christ. We should not struggle for a lot of things we struggle for. We should not! All we have to do is to believe and receive it.
