We as writers and ministers can find ourselves seeking to share something ‘deep’. Something profound that makes one sit back and say, “Wow!” If we aren’t careful we can feel pressured to validate our anointing or education with quotes, discourses, and words of wisdom that confirm God speaks through us. The fact is, when we are fortunate enough to do so, it IS God and not us.

Have you ever been around someone who never talks normal, but feels every word must be a divine revelation? Every sentence must be crafted perfectly? Every moment is a teaching or mentoring moment…they can’t just have a simple conversation?

Have you ever noticed how a very charismatic speaker can make something really simple sound deep? That’s why we should never confuse charisma with anointing.


But, even God Himself isn’t always DEEP.


John 3:16 (NKJV)

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life…

That’s simple.

Romans 10:9 (NKJV)

that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved…

That’s simple.

Luke 6:31 (NKJV)

And just as you want men to do to you, you also do to them likewise…

That’s simple.

Even the Apostle Paul admitted he wasn’t always deep either…

1 Corinthians 2:1-2  (NKJV)

2 And I, brethren, when I came to you, did not come with excellence of speech or of wisdom declaring to you the testimony[a] of God. For I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified.

It doesn’t take much reading to discover God’s word is full of simple truths and expressions of His love.

God knows how to feed us with milk, and how to feed us with meat. He knows what we need and when we need it…

1 Peter 2:2  (NKJV)

as newborn babes, desire the pure milk of the word, that you may grow thereby,[a]

If God can humble Himself to sometimes keep things ‘simple’ for us, then we can to.

And, don’t get to the point that your expectation of the deep allows you to miss what’s profoundly simple.

BE BLESSTIFIED!

God bless you! I'm a husband, father and ordained Minister since 1996. I serve as an Associate Minister at Oak Spring Church Arlington TN, a suburb of Memphis. I'm a professional Copywriter for a Fortune 500 company, published Gospel songwriter and owner of an independent label, Al-Go-Rhythm Music. My main spiritual gift is Exhortation...I'm a natural encourager. I love the word of God and sharing it from a "Wow, I never thought of it like that before" perspective. There's so much fresh revelation in God's word that is just as relevant today as it was as it unfolded. I hope my daily devotionals enhance your walk with God, taking you beyond BLESSED to BLESSTIFIED.
