The Giver

God is a giver.

We tend to feel overlooked when we are in need or if feeling overwhelmed by circumstances. But God is still a Giver.

We worship a God whom gave the most important possession of all, His Son. He just did not give him away but sent Him to a painful death.

Giving is inherent to God's nature. He cannot help but give.

To me, that means that I must increase in two areas.

Rather than being enmeshed in worry, I can increase in my attentiveness and receptivity.

In attentiveness, I can search for God more frequently rather than dwelling on my inadequacies.

In receptiveness, am I hearing and listening to God? Am I responding in a way that reflects Him?

These are key to receiving from God. (Isaiah 26:3)
