Have you ever wondered why we don’t just automatically have what God desires for us–what His will is–eliminating our need to respond? One of the reasons is that God doesn’t violate our free will—He needs our permission to work in our lives. Because it is a relationship, God will not move without our agreement with Him, so all the responsibility doesn’t just rest on Him; we too have a part to play. In this message, Pastor Chris teaches us through Biblical examples where our responsibilities lie in our relationship with Him and in our responding to Him. There are important key factors to receiving from God, and the more we learn those factors and put them into practice, responding to God the right way will become as natural to us as breathing.
