Why is this a word that has gained so much power? As I was in a coffee-house yesterday, owned by the wonderful author and pastor MarcBatterson, he has a new book coming out entitled IF. I thought to myself what a great word to explore, as it has so many underlining reasons as to why it has become even more powerful than ever. I believe that fear drives a person to say it, whether is stems from constantly being told they can not do something and/or taking this one by telling oneself that the current and sometimes future situation drives the IF…
I am not saying that this is an easy thing to conquer; and I know that has been a word I used more in my 40’s than ever allowing money to be my driver; verses in my 20’s and 30’s when I would just do it.
Here is a summary for the book that comes out in October:
That tiny two-letter word is the hinge on the door of possibilities. Some of us are stuck in if only, living lives marked by regret. But God can turn your if only regrets into a what if attitude, a faith that looks forward to the future with holy confidence. There are 1,784 ifs in the Bible. The most significant? “If God is for us, who can be against us?” It’s the game changer! God is always on our side—every day, in every way.
