5 Methods God Will Use To Bring Money (Part 3)

Updated on June 9, 2011

Receiving from Others

At first glance this topic may seem obvious that one will receive money from other people, but there are many people who find it hard to receive from others. Think about it, one can never take hold of what they are not willing to receive.

Take a look at Luke 6:38 where it reads give and it shall be given unto you good measure pressed down and shaken together and running over shall men give into your bosom for with the same measure that you mete withal it shall be measured to you again.(KJV)

Since one of Gods methods of bringing money to an individual will come through others, one must learn to be a receiver. Many people may feel as though they are a charity case if someone offers to give them something. This feeling then causes them to become too proud to receive anything. The pride of life is a major force in the world today and the bible says that God hates a proud spirit.

Pride goes before destruction and a haughty spirit before a fall. To get rid of pride the bible says to submit to God and humble oneself and he will exalt the individual. Another reason people may find it hard to receive may be because they never give. The more one becomes a giver the more one has a chance to learn to be a receiver because the law of giving and receiving goes into effect. Even big corporations and famous people give to charities and it comes back to them in one form or another. Other reasons people may find it hard to receive is because they may feel as though they have not earned it.

People who work a 9 to 5 look forward to payday because they have earned their paycheck and they do not find it hard to receive. Salvation is a free gift given by God to mankind because he loved the world, but self righteousness gets in the way of many because they may feel as though they must earn Gods free gift. As we make giving a part of our lives, we set the foundation of receiving so we can give again and receive again to give.

A cycle is created of giving and receiving so the gospel can be funded and peoples needs are met. Receiving from people is also receiving from God because Proverbs 19:17 says that he that has pity on the poor lends to the Lord and that which he has given will he pay him again.

So we see that to refuse to receive from others is also to not receive from God who must use others to get the money to someone. God will never be indebted to anyone so it will never be because he has not tried to give back to a person, but refusing to receive from others is a reason that stops one from getting what God has for them. Its great to be a giver but it is also great to be a receiver so one can give again.

Jesus was a receiver:

Luke 8:3 shows Jesus receiving from women who funded his ministry. It reads and Joanna the wife of Chuza Herods steward, and Susanna and many others which ministered unto him of their substance.

Jesus received the expensive ointment that his disciples thought could have been sold: There came unto him a woman having an alabaster box of very precious ointment and poured it on his head as he sat at meat. But when his disciples saw it they had indignation saying to what purpose is this waste?

For this ointment might have been sold for much and given to the poor. (Matthew 26:7-9). This also shows that a person will receive in proportion to how they value themselves. Many feel as though they don't deserve anything so they refuse to receive anything. Jesus knew who he was and he had a healthy self-esteem. We are creations of value because we have been made in the image of God.

Luke 19:30 shows that Jesus received the mode of transportation of his day that had never been used. Jesus sent two of his disciples and told them to go into the village and they would find a colt tied whereon never a man sat. It is important for people to understand that they can have new things. There is nothing wrong with used, but every now and then one deserves new also.
