“If you get this done in five days, consider yourself promoted”
“If you do this well you would get a performance award”
“If you pass this exam with good marks, you would get your first bike”
Familiar with this?
Back at work we had this function in excel that worked with a “IF” dialogue and it was pretty useful given the conditions were correct and then breaking down huge spreadsheets was very simple.
Conditional promising is not really a thing that is of the present or just invented by us, conditional promising existed from the Old Testament, God gave King Solomon both riches and wisdom because he asked for wisdom.
Are you and me still guilty of giving God “terms and conditions” for His will to be done in our lives.
Are you tired of being given conditions to work on?
We have a God who has never ending unfailing love unlike our love with “terms and conditions”, we have a God who sent His one and only Son to die on the cross for our sins and uses my downfalls for my betterment and carrying me all the way.
Why do I still carry around my past hurt and bruises like it happened just yesterday when I have a God who takes every stab for me, every hurt, always there to carry me and a light at my darkest night.
For my God loves me unconditionally, forgiving and forgetting my sins and not treating me as my sins deserve.
“And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.”
For I have a Father up above who loves me so very much without any conditions and that’s what keeps me going.
And he is just waiting for you to call on Him. Would you?
