The best way to receive from God is to petition Him through Jesus. If you do not ask of Him, you will not receive from Him. God is under no obligation to answer the prayers of those who have rejected Him.
You might be thinking, “how come so many people who have no relationship with Jesus still get blessed?” The reason is that like us they also have received grace. Grace is getting what you do not deserve.
Millions of non-believers follow the same life principles that lead to the same blessings that followers of Jesus receive. For example: Those who are generous or those who are charitable. Despite not believing In Jesus, they still benefit from helping others.
The truth is that there are many who do more for others than Christians. The problem is that they do not know where their blessings come from and ignore Christ in their lives. Eventually, despite their benevolence, if they die without Christ they died without receiving mercy.
Mercy is NOT getting what we all deserve which is eternal separation from God for our pride. Pride led to the fall of mankind, all included even though it was Adam and Eve that disobeyed God’s commands first.
Actually, Lucifer was the first to disobey God, but Lucifer was an angel. Now he is the Devil. Christ died for humans, not angels. Angels were created for service and therefore those who believe In Jesus are greater than angels. God said that we will judge the angels.
Prayer, Praise, Petition with Thanksgiving “For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving: For it is sanctified by the Word of God and prayer” (1 Tim. 4:4, 5). Non-Believers are God’s loved creations.
The issue is that God is under no obligation to answer their prayers because they remain separated from God due to their rejection of Jesus. Always thank God for all your blessings which are too numerous to count. All things that are good come from God through Jesus.
