Have you ever noticed that sometimes the best things in life are the simplest? A gorgeous flower arrangement with its varieties of species and rainbow of colors is amazing, but what about the single rose. Do you ponder how the Creator crafted such a beauty? Do you marvel at it’s color, texture and fragrance? I do. I often wonder how some could say there’s no God when man could never design something so perfect. A small seed planted in the soil springs forth to life and blossoms into a miraculous vision for the eyes to behold.
Or perhaps if we consider the creation and birth of a child? Does the father and mother toil over how to create their unborn child’s nervous system or how to form a skeleton or a brain, of course not. Do they know the exact time the birth pangs will begin and their child will be born? Through the miracle of life our Father forms the child unto perfection, knitting us together in our mother’s womb as it says in Psalm 139. And then, at the appointed time, life comes into the world. Oh but GOD…
The Word is so profound and yet so very simple.
Never lose sight of the basic’s of God’s Word. Yes there are Bible teachers that embellish and complicate the Word through WORDY explanations, homilitical, hoinutical doctrines and opinions, but God’s Word explains it self. His Word is filled with wisdom from on high. So receiving His Word like a child creates an atmosphere for increase and understanding.
Luke 18:17 Amplified
Truly I say to you, whoever does not accept and receive and welcome the kingdom of God like a little child [does] shall not in any way enter it [at all].
When we take in the Bible like the beauty of that one rose, it creates the power to multiply and the supernatural virtue of the Word to come forth.
Isaiah 61:11 Amplified “For as surely as the earth brings forth its shoots, and as a garden causes what is sown in it to spring forth, so surely the Lord God will cause rightness and justice and praise to spring forth before all the nations THROUGH THE SELF-FULFILLING POWER OF HIS WORD.”
In the book of Genesis the Lord tells us that while the earth remains the entire Kingdom of God is based on seedtime and harvest. I like to say it like this: 1) Seed, 2) Time, 3) Harvest. So we sow seeds, we wait for a time and then…… harvest. Sometimes the “time” part seems like a looooooooong time but eventually there will be harvest. It’s a spiritual law. So, we can be filled with the best teaching and filled and filled and filled, but it’s not the Word you know that brings you results, it’s the Word you do!
The late, great Smith Wigglesworth was a man of true simplicity. He simply believed the Bible. He took God at His Word and acted on it. With many documented people being raised from the dead, arms and legs growing back miraculously, cancers disappearing and souls brought into the Kingdom, he approached the doctrine with child like faith. If God said it, then he believed it!
With that faith he changed the lives of countless souls and left us with a legacy of teachings that can bring us to that same faith. I encourage you to study and review his life and ministry. It encourages me to know that miracles still do happen for those who will just trust that God’s Word is real.
