RECEIVE NOT BY WORKS 9-16-18 VIDEO SHAWN RECEIVE 2
We are asking that God will set us free from formula and works. Receive means to recognize what is genuine to acknowledge it. We received the Word. It is implanted and takes deep root and doesnt come and go. It is at work in us. So to receive means to allow what youve been given implanted inside you.
Sometimes it is difficult to let go of something in order to receive something better. In the old testament Abraham lay down Isaac but received far more. Receiving is like a seed in the ground it produces a harvest. Miracles are about receiving. Receiving what you lost coming back to you and addition.

13 Then Abraham looked up and glanced around, and behold, behind him was a ram caught in a thicket by his horns. And Abraham went and took the ram and offered it up for a burnt offering and an ascending sacrifice instead of his son!
