Wayne and I have been praying a lot that the Lord help us to receive all that He has for us and not pass anything aside.  Yesterday I was doing the scrapbook magazine format to another lesson at the school and it was the one on meditation.  I asked the Lord if He could give me a verse to meditate on, so this was also a special answer to prayer.


I came to this scripture and I looked up the word RECEIVE and catching a ball came to mind.


Mark 11:24 Therefore I say unto you, whatever things you desire, when you pray, believe that you will receive them, and you shall have them.



Strong's Greek Dictionary
2983. λαμβανω lambano
Search for G2983 in KJVSL

λαμβανω lambano lam-ban'-o

a prolonged form of a primary verb, which is use only as an alternate in certain tenses; to take (in very many applications, literally and figuratively (properly objective or active, to get hold of; whereas 1209 is rather subjective or passive, to have offered to one; while 138 is more violent, to seize or remove)):—accept, + be amazed, assay, attain, bring, X when I call, catch, come on (X unto), + forget, have, hold, obtain, receive (X after), take (away, up).


The Word of the Lord (or promise) is the ball. He sends it to us and we receive it and run with it and take it where it is supposed to go.


HOW TO CATCH A BALL (receive the word or promise of the lord)    

  • Keep your eye on the ball

  • Expect and anticipate its coming

  • Get into position, the right place and alignment

  • Reach out

  • Take ahold of, tuck it close to you, protect it


CONFIRMATION:  Oh my, I love how God speaks!  I just sent a note with the above bullets and then opened up my scrapbook program to tackle the next page at the school.  I needed brown paper and green paper and instead of creating some new paper this time, I thought I would click on the brown directory to see what I had there.  My eye immediately went to this one!  (I didn’t even know I had it.)
