Now, that might sound like a peculiar question to ask but it’s a valid question, no matter who you are. I’m going to say some things that will probably shake you a bit but it’s not what I think that counts or what you think, but what does God say. That always has to be the bottom line: What does God have to say about any given situation?
So, back to the question. Here’s the answer in a nutshell: you can have as much of God as you want or as little of God as you want. YOU are the deciding factor! It’s not up to God how much of Him you get. You have to choose to walk with Him and learn His ways if you want what He has.
Now this might not make you happy. But if it was all up to God, then it would be hit or miss about how much of Him that we get to participate in. But knowing that it’s really up to us and what we choose, we can do that. We are well able to make the choice to seek God and His way of doing and being right and enjoy all the benefits that He has given to His dear children – that’s us. [Matthew 6:33]
Moving right along, this works with everything about God. We can have as much healing, deliverance, prosperity, love, joy, peace, etc. that we want. It’s all up to us and how yielded we are to His ways. To me that’s exciting because I want it all! And if it’s my choice to choose, then I can do that!
God has already given us everything that pertains to life and godliness [II Peter 1:3-4], so all we really have to do is reach out, take and receive what He’s already given. That’s awesome!
Now I realize that this thinking will ruffle the “religious” people and their set doctrines that everything is up to God, but we’re not like that. He has given us a free will to do the choosing. Let’s choose Him! His Word trumps all wacky doctrines! Praise the Lord for His awesome Word to us!
