How did you come to receive Jesus? Think back for a moment on how simple it was. You asked Him to come into your heart, and you were saved and in a new relationship with the Lord. How awesome! Many of us can testify that when Jesus came into our lives we didn’t hear bolts of thunder and the room probably didn’t shake, however, we knew that something miraculous had happened and we would never be the same! We were confident that we were born again and would one day spend eternity in heaven with the Lord! Glory to God! A simple prayer changed our lives completely! Well, if we can receive Jesus through simply asking Him to come into our hearts, why do so many of us make our lives so complicated? Why do we make our relationships complicated? Our approach to spiritual growth complicated? Sin complicates everything. We make life complicated when we want to do things our way. However, when we yield ourselves to God and simply do what He says to do in the Bible we will find so much ease and simplicity. Just like receiving Jesus is simple, living everyday life and handling everyday challenges is simple when we do what God says to do. Don’t complicate it! Yield and surrender to God! Keep it simple!
“All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. God uses it to prepare and equip his people to do every good work.” (2 Timothy 3:16 NLT)
Prayer: Father, forgive me for making things so complicated through my stubbornness. I submit to You and I yield to You. Show me how to keep everything in my life simple by trusting and obeying what You tell me to do. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
