COME ON NOW…EVEN GOD ISN’T ALWAYS ‘DEEP’!

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!

  1. Amen!!! I find it interesting when people respond to me with comments that either lecture or just don’t sound like something someone would normally say in other situations.

    We are to let our yes be yes, and our no be no. I think that relates to us also be honest with who we are as a person. We should be pretty consistent. I am guilty of sometimes trying to be inspirational in a way, that isn’t really me. Christ has shown me it’s ok to be encouraging, but we don’t have to go out and beyond of who we are. He’ll work with us just as we are, cause He’s the Potter, and we are the clay. 🙂

      1. Amen 🙂 I agree, He does use us, and He does some amazing inspirational and personal reflection. I think that’s exactly what I meant. you spoke of forcing. Sometimes, I feel there’s a mask believers hide behind. Knowledge, lecture, appearing to know stuff, appearing to try too hard.

        Amen. It’s God, not us.

  2. AMEN!
    How about this one:
    2 Corinthians 1:12 – For our rejoicing is this, the testimony of our conscience, that in simplicity and godly sincerity, not with fleshly wisdom, but by the grace of God, we have had our conversation in the world, and more abundantly to you-ward.
