(Isaiah 1: 19)
We all know that God's love for humanity is unconditional. John 3:16 tells us "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that who so ever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life."
But when it comes to the blessings of God there are conditions.
In the Bible verse above (Isaiah 1:19), we often pay attention to the words: willing, obedient, good; but there's another important word here, "If". God has put in place a condition in order for us to receive the good things He has placed for us on this Earth. "But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint." (Isaiah 40:31)
Who shall renew their strength? "They" that wait. All the blessings that are tied to this verse are received by THOSE who wait.
"Blessed is the man that endureth temptation; for when he hath been approved, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord promised to them that love Him." (James 1:12)
Who is blessed and shall receive the crown of life (blessing on the Earth)? Not those who are tempted, but THOSE who endures temptation.
As we read our Bible, let's make sure we don't breeze past the "if" and "those" words. They are just as important and clarifies for us what needs to be done in order to receive the blessings that God has promised us in His word! God loves you!
Give your life to Christ
Say Lord I confess my sins, and I make You my Lord and Savior.
