Different Vessel, Same Source

As I thought about the theme, Receive by the Spirit, I thought about conversations that I have had explaining to people that we always receive what we need, when we need it.  The “problem” seems to be that we are often looking for these needs to come from a certain person or place, thereby at times missing the fact that we have “received” what we need when it comes from a Different Vessel.  However, with time, we learn that when we are open to Receive by the Spirit, although what we need may come through a Different Vessel, it ultimately comes from the Same Source.

Over the years, I have worked with and talked to numerous individuals who were looking for caring, nurturing, and guidance from their primary caretakers but were angry and frustrated because the primary caretakers didn’t give them what they desired.  However, during the conversations it became apparent that they had received the exact caring, nurturing and guidance that they craved from other people such as teachers, friends, mentors, co-workers, etc.  Once highlighted, the individuals realized that they had been receiving their hearts desires, they had just received it from a Different Vessel.

Take a moment and think about a time when you desired something … a date, a hug, someone to listen to you or someone to talk to.  You may have tried to receive these things from a certain person but they weren’t available… but then someone appeared.  This someone may have been familiar or a complete stranger, yet they provided you with just what you needed/desired at that moment. The saying goes “God always gives us what we need”.  Hence, although we may receive our needs through Different Vessels, it is the Same Source that is ensuring that our needs our met.

So as you continue to Receive by the Spirit, take some time to recognize and acknowledge when your needs are being met…even when they are being met through a Different Vessel.  The more you become aware of this, the more abundance you will recognize in your life.  Once you see how you are being taken care of and provided for, be sure to express your gratitude to the Ultimate Source that is providing for you at all times.

God Bless and continue to Live By The Spirit.

  1. Sometimes GOD surprises us and close all the usual vessels of blessing and totally surprises us with a new one.
