Follow the Recipe and Receive
Hebrews 6:12 (KJV)
That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises.
Who do you know that is inheriting the promises of God? I can guarantee if you are seeing someone receiving what God promised them, they obtained it through faith and patience. That’s the recipe God gives us in Hebrews 6:12. And your capacity to receive from God depends on your ability to follow it.
Many times when God first speaks something wonderful to us, we respond with great excitement. We praise God as we picture ourselves living our dreams. However, as time passes we may lose sight of that picture. Hope fades and we can grow disinterested or become lazy about receiving what is ours.
But God wants us to show the same diligence all the way through to the end. Understand this. Instant gratification teaches us nothing. Strength is gained while we persevere and refuse to cave in or quit believing.
Don’t let time fade your hope like an old photograph. Keep thanking God and preparing to receive what He says is already yours. Follow the recipe and receive.
Success and Progress!
