RECEIVE FROM ME

Job 15:20, 24-25 “All his days the wicked man suffers torment, the ruthless through all  the years store up for him. Distress and anguish fill him with terror; they overwhelm him like a king poised to attack, because he shakes his fist at God and vaults himself against the Almighty.”

The Scene: A closed fist representing the lost; an open hand representing God’s hand of forgiveness and salvation offered.

The Lord desires to give everyone His gifts of love, mercy and grace–salvation and eternal life.

“A closed fist can be viewed as someone who is fearful, angry, and closed,” said the Holy Spirit. A closed fist can receive nothing from God because nothing can be placed in a closed fist.

Matthew 7:8 ” For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks the door will be opened.”

An open hand, palm up, like a little child’s hand, can receive from God all His blessings– an open hand, a sign of one who is humble and open.

Matthew 11:28 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.
