IF; The little big word. If appears 574 times in the New Testament alone and almost 50% of these are in the Gospels. Most of the promises we have from God begin with an if to outline the conditions of the promise.
And I am struck with how many times it is followed by my favorite four-letter word….OBEY!
Isaiah 1:19, for instance, says, “If you consent and obey, you will eat of the best of the land.” 574 times in the New Testament!!!
It seems to me that Jesus said often; if you will obey my word, the promises of God are yours…If my words abide in you, you shall ask what you will and it shall be done!!!!
Ever wonder why our prayers are not making any difference? Maybe we are forgetting the (if’s)! Revelation 3:20, “Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.” Praise God! Bless you all tomorrow as we fast and pray together,
LIFE does not meet tonight but please join us Sunday at Summer Breeze for the service there.
