Seek The Giver, Not The Gift

People tell me that I’m not a true Christian because I don’t go into a building they call the church. They say that I don’t love God because I don’t follow certain rituals and come under a man or woman standing on a pulpit. These same people also don’t know that I was in the religious order for almost twenty years! God spoke to me and told me to leave and He will show me who He really is. I struggled for a long time before I did it because I was concerned about what others would think. I was afraid I would fall back into sin, or even worse a cult! But God in His love kept me through it all and has kept His promise of showing me His true self. Sharing with me the secrets of the Kingdom! Now I am not telling anyone to do what I did. Each person has their path to follow. All I’m doing with this blog is sharing my heart, experiences and what the Holy Spirit shows me to give. I have come to the place of seeking Him, not what He can do for me. This is the great sin of religion! Their eyes are on everything else but God!

Spiritual lust makes me demand an answer from God, instead of seeking God Who gives the answer. Whenever we insist that God answers our prayers, then we are off track. The meaning of prayer is that we get a hold of God, not of the answer. Spiritual dejection is a sign of spiritual sickness. We have not because we ask not, but we ask amiss. We ask out of our desires which are fleeting anyway. We don’t ask for the One who can give us all things. He desires so much to give Himself to us in a way we could hardly fathom. Do we not say, “Its not the gift, but the thought that counts?” Then we should apply this same thought to our spiritual life. It’s not the gifts that are important it is the One giving them. When we truly understand that we will more blessed than we have ever been. Our eyes will be opened to see the true gift in the Giver and realize that what we were seeking for was puny, limited when the One who gives has all things. He is an infinite supply!

“Seek ye first the Kingdom of God…” Seek first God! THEN all other things shall be added unto you. Many people ask me how should they seek God? In prayer, meditation, going to church? Honestly there is no one way of seeking Him for we are all different. After my experience of “seeking God” I found that we don’t find God at all, He finds us. Just as Jesus said, “You did not choose Me, but I chose you.” We cannot seek that which is beyond us if we are still in a natural consciousness. That which is higher than we are finds us, and then gives us the clarity to see Him. To seek the Giver, you must see with the eyes of your heart. “…eyes of your heart must be enlightened.” (Ephesians 1:18)

To see that which is beyond our natural senses means to see with another set of eyes. We must see with the eyes of spirit. Only God, the Source can open the eyes of our heart, the invisible eye to see into the spirit realm. “Our physical eyes are created to see the physical nature of creation, while the eyes of our heart are created to see the invisible aspects of heaven.” (Jamie Galloway, 21 Days Declaration to Activate the Seer Nature) Our spiritual EYE is already there because God created it within us, we just need to tap into what is present within. Every time God shows you an aspect of Himself see it for what it is, acknowledge first that He is, then receive the Truth that All things exist and consist in Him, through Him and for Him. Then you will see that you exist and consist in Him therefore there is no beginning nor end to you because He is eternal, and so are you. The priesthood of Melchizedek is an order of an endless life. According to the writer of Hebrews Jesus was after the order of Melchizedek. If we are in Him (Christ), then we too are after this eternal order. We come to an existence where we no longer need to receive blessings or gifts, for we have become the blessed, the giver. We no longer need healing for we have become the healer, we have become the deliverer, we have become saviors! Do you see? Oh, it’s wonderful!

“…what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints…” (Ephesians 1:18) We have more than gifts in Him, we have a glorious inheritance that surpasses any gift we could fathom to ask for. Once I seek or rather is found, we then receive. Reception must also be with the eyes of the heart or else you still won’t know what you have received. We must have illumination into all that the Holy Spirit has for us. So, let us pray, “Father, open the eyes of my heart that I may see and know your glory, your power, your love. That I may receive with all fullness the inheritance I have in You. To be able to walk in that understanding and receive total victory in my life. Let me see the kingdom of God through the eyes of my heart, that not only will I be enlightened but that I may awake all those around me.”
