To Live Is To Receive

What am I living for? I am living to receive all the gifts of God – here on earth. His nature is to give; my new nature, to receive.

The Divine Word on His nature is written in Roman 8:32 –

He who did not spare His own Son but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He

not with Him also freely give us all things?

We do not manipulate the Father by receiving His free gifts. But to think we deserve them is to manipulate ourselves. His are gifts of grace – unearned, unmerited, undeserved. To live is to receive His gifts as gifts of pure grace. That is why we are here today – on this side of heaven.

For forty days we have fasted from wrong thinking. Let the fast continue. Nothing to lose, everything to gain.


Day 40 >


As we conclude this amazing 40-day journey, I want to assure you: You are different. You are better. You are changing! And I want to help launch you into God's AMAZING future for your life. 

So today, we're fasting from the thought that says:"There's no point in dreaming a dream. I'm just trying to survive."

This limited view of life has to go!

Let's Change It TODAY:

1. Dreaming is God's idea. He would never give them, if He wasn't planning to bring them to pass. Acts 2:17 says, "…young men will see visions & old men will dream dreams." Why does He say "old men"? Because we are to never stop dreaming! 

2. The Holy Spirit is the author of dreams (Acts 2:17). So dreams that are from God must line up with the Word of God. When we find a BIG promise in God's Word, we are giving God a dream to work with.

3. Dreaming BIG is what enables God to DO BIG in your life. Ephesians 3:20 (AMP) says He is able to do infinitely beyond our highest hopes or dreams! 

4. Your heart is a dream manufacturing center!Habakkuk 2:2 & Proverbs 3:3…write the vision on the table of your heart…so the One who reads it may run with it. Proverbs 4:23 says watch over your heart…for out of it flow the issues (harvests, dreams) of life. 

5. Don't limit God to just your needs. Jesus asked Bartimeus: "What do you WANT me to do for you?" (Mark 10:45-49) Bartimeus didn't NEED to see to survive. But it was his dream. And Jesus fulfilled it!

6. Expect God to give you understanding about His visions & dreams! (Daniel 1:17)

Think It & Say It:

I will not settle with just surviving in life. I will receive God's dreams for my life. And He will bring them to pass. Dreaming big is His idea; and it enables God to do what He longs to do in my life. I will think big, ask big, and dream big. I will fill my heart with God's promises, creating God's dreams for my life, in Jesus' Name!


In His Great Love,

Gregory Dickow
