Sometimes the deeper I feel about something, the more words I use to explain what I'm thinking...
His word is loaded with tiny words, pivotal words that have huge meanings.
Take the little word IF...
There are many scriptures where that little word IF is the condition on which the promise hinges.
"IF my people who are called by my name shall humble themselves and pray, and seek my face, THEN will they hear from heaven and I will forgive their sins and heal their land."
The promises are gigantic, but the realization of those promises are based on the IF...
Another one is WHEN...
"You shall seek me and you shall find me WHEN you search for me with your whole heart."
Again, the promise is huge, life changing, but the condition is based on the WHEN.
What are those loaded little words... really?
...They are God's instructions to us.
...They are words that require our obedience.
I have been guilty of reading, claiming, and even declaring those promises, without always DOING what He has instructed. You already know where this is going...
IF we fail to do it God's way, per His instructions, even though His words may be small, we miss the full blessings and the answers that He has promised.
My parents used to always say "Little is much when God is in it".
God is in those little words, He gave them to us for very good reasons. God says what He means with crystal clarity, in very few words.
We can never claim that He is too complicated and hard to understand.
Aren't you glad for that? I sure am.
