In life, many people run into problems because they do not read the fine print in their contracts, or they do not look at the attach conditions written into the contract. For many, the fine print and attachments are read when an issue arises, and it is often too late. Unfortunately, this is also the case with believers; we read the Word, get excited about the promises but overlook the conditions that come with the promises.

As believers, we have the right to claim the blessings of Abraham, but along with the blessings comes responsibility. If we act irresponsibly, we open the door for the consequences. Also, many believers think that God is a Santa Claus who comes bearing gifts (things we want). We forget the words from the song “Santa Claus is Coming to Town,” which imply if you are naughty (disobedient), you will not be getting any gifts.

In the Bible, the word “if” often introduced a condition or requirement God was making with individuals. According to Strong Concordance, the word “if” is used 1521 in the Bible: 1029 in the Old Testament and 492 in the New Testament. Rather than me giving examples of “if” scriptures, I suggest after reading this blog that you do your own personal study. Examine what these scriptures are saying and see if you met the “if” conditions. Maybe you have been praying and asking God why things have not been going right in your life. After your examination, you may receive your answer.

Finally, God’s actions toward humanity are that of a gentleman. He does not force Himself of us, and He allows us to choose which path we will follow. After reading the Word and seeing the curses and consequences that people experienced, we then have a decision to make, and because we are in a battle with our flesh, it takes prayer, humbling ourselves and resisting the spirit of disobedience. So, my prayer for all of us is, “God help us to fulfill your conditions.”
