“Steve Harvey Morning Show” – Dear Mr. Harvey: Would You Pleeeease Stop Talking Crazy! Obedience To God… Gets Prayers Answered. Not, Reciting Some Damn Wish List

A few days ago, someone told me that she had recently listened to the Steve steveharveyHarvey Morning Show where he instructed them on how to get what they wanted from God.  He told them to make a list of what they wanted.  Then, they were told to read the list every morning & night.  He said…if they do these things…they will get what they want from God.   My response to hearing this was… “WHAT THE HELL???”  Seriously… I was wondering what kind of snake peddleroil Steve Harvey was trying to peddle in the name of God.   I instinctively knew that this shit did not come from God.  Not at all.  Now…to be fair, I said to myself…  “Self you need to find out exactly what Steve Harvey said or didn’t say.”   So…Here’s the bulk of what Steve Harvey said on May 3, 2016…

“Habakkuk 2: 2.  Write the vision and make it plain. Be specific.  Put it in several locations.  It’s called faith.  Faith is the belief in things that you cannot see.  So, write down everything that you want from God and be as specific as you can.  Write it.  Next Step.   I want you to read it every morning before you do anything and read it every night before you go to bed.  I don’t care how long it takes.  Trust in the scripture.  Stop memorizing all these scriptures down at your church then don’t apply none of them. Then, after that, just twice a week, if you haven’t bought a t-shirt, this is just a reminder to you…this ain’t like a prayer cloth or nothing like that.  This ain’t what this is.  I don’t do that.  Just where the faith shirt twice a week, on Monday and Friday, just as a reminder.  Or pull out your iphone with your faith emblem on the back. Or carry your tote bag twice a week just to remind you about the key word to everything… faith.  Write the vision and make it plain so that he who reads it will run to it and even though it tarry wait for it  for surely it will come at an appointed time.  If you do this you are obeying a principle that God has in place and that’s how you get what you want.”

Alrighty then.   Let’s break this down to see what God thinks about Steve Harvey telling people to do this.    First, Steve makes reference to a bible book…chapter & verse… Habakkuk 2: 2.   Now…the prudent thing for us to do is to check out what this bible verse says.    Habakkuk 2: 2 says, “Then the Lord answered me and said: Write the vision; make it plain on tablets, so that a runner may read it.”   The “me” referred to in the verse is, Habakkuk, a prophet.   You see… in Habakkuk chapter 1…Habakkuk had complained to God, “how long shall I cry for help, and you will not listen? Or cry to you “Violence!” and you will not save?”   In chapter 2:2, the Lord started answering habakkukthe prophet’s cries.     So…Habakkuk 2:2 mentioned by Steve Harvey was God’s direction to his prophet.   I repeat…the message put forth in Habakkuk 2:2 was intended for God’s prophet.   And…not just for anybody.   Second, what the prophet is to write down IS what “God wants”…not what the prophet wants.   Are you following me…here??? Steve Harvey flipped the script.  No where in that verse does God say… “ Habakkuk, tell the people to write down what they want,  repeat it day & night & I will grant what they want.”   And…You know why??? Because…

That is not how God works.   NOT AT ALL.  He is not a whore to be used by humans.  HELL NO!!!  God is in charge here…not, man.  Let us not… get this matthew633shit twisted.   And…know this…    He does not take kindly to people coming to him…out of order…making demands.    You see…that type of behavior lacks a component He requires…humility.   Steve Harvey has got this ass backwards.  God tells us, “33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.” (Matthew 6:33)  God requires us to first, follow & obey him…& then, He will consider our request.   He tells me… “You listen to me child & then…I will listen to you.”   Alright…

Let’s take a moment to look at this man who we call “Steve Harvey.”  Steve Harvey is a very popular Black man in the entertainment industry.  He’s been knowledgeableout here for a while now.  He is a comedian who has a morning radio show the “Steve Harvey Morning Show”… & a couple of tv shows.    I said that…to say this…   A lot of people listen to Steve Harvey & see him as an authority on all kinds of subjects such as relationships, etc.   And…why do they see him as an authority on these things?  O.k.  Let’s get real here.   Some people in their ignorance will make anybody else…who knows ten things more about something than they do…an authority on that subject.  Sounding knowledgeable about something doesn’t, in and of itself, make you an authority on shit.  And…that’s for damn sure.   O.k.  Let’s keep going.

God said there will be people put before us who may mislead us. (Matthew 24:11)  Therefore, we must be very careful about who we listen to…. & what expectationwe take into our minds & spirits.   Please pay attention to this people.   So… What Steve Harvey has done is dangerous.   Why?  Because if people write the list…read it in the morning & night…& nothing happens…they can start losing faith in God. People could easily be disappointed & feel hopeless.   This can lead people away from God, instead of, to God.    And…God knows…it doesn’t take much to do that… sometimes.  Yes… a lot of people’s faith is on very shaky ground to start with.    This is why you have to be very careful when discussing & dealing with the things of God.  Now…

Don’t blame God for you not getting what you want after you write the list…& repeat it over & over.   No…  DO NOT BLAME GOD!   It was not him who told you to do this stupid shit to start with.   Put the blame where it lies.   Put it at the feet of Mr. Steve Harvey.  And…put it at the feet of those who believed & followed what Steve Harvey said.  Why? Because if they knew God’s word for themselves…they may not have been so knowgodswordquick to swallow what Steve Harvey was putting down.  It’s just that plain…it’s just that simple.     You know God says,  “My people perish for lack of knowledge.” (Hosea 4:6)  So, you see…He doesn’t give us a pass for just accepting any damn thing somebody tells us just because it sounds good.   And…Just because it’s what we want to hear.   No.  He holds us accountable & responsible to learn about him for ourselves.    Pick up the bible & learn his word.   Get to know him better.  In this way…your less likely to be duped about the things of God.

And, to Steve Harvey I say this… “Will you please shut the “hell” up (literally).  How can you teach… what you don’t know? Remember, God says that you will be held accountable for every careless word that you utter.  (Matthew 12:36) Oh yeah…I’m not even going to get into why your peddling your ‘faith’ t-shirts as a way for people to remember God.  Really? THE FATHER SAYS…  ‘JUST STOP IT.’   Thank you.”
