Complicating? It’s been said that there are “two types of people: those who simplify the complicated and those that complicate the simple. Perhaps this is what our lives look like to the God when He shows us how to live but we’re busy living it our way. He’s looking at a clearly laid out path while at the same time watching us drive in all directions, but the one He is pointing at.
Think about it. We often struggle with all our problems and frustrations, not realizing that if we look up, we’ll find the answer. God’s message to us is simple. “Deny ourselves and follow Him.
God’s Word tells us: “You know how to interpret the appearance of the sky, but you cannot interpret the signs of the times” (Matthew 16:1-4).
Denying ourselves and seeking God’s help is the right way, and it’s the best way. But, like that postal carrier, we often are so focused on the way we think we need to go, that we fail to see the way that God has revealed would be the best way to go. Don’t complicate the simple. Take every opportunity to see how simple knowing Jesus is. Simplify!
“I pray today in Jesus name that when life becomes complicating we seek God’s help first, following the simplest path to a good solution, rather than relying on ourselves, often the worst path to good ends.” Amen!”
“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own” (Matthew 6:34) www.thispassingday.com
