Perhaps we’ve complicated things unnecessarily. As we mature and journey through life, does Father God ever intend for us to lose our child-like innocence? Certainly we can’t abandon responsibilities and play legos while watching cartoons all day! But what about our hearts? Have we lost the ability to trust?
I recently was told again something I have heard all my life- “You are so gullible!” But here’s the kicker: I like that about me! I see it as an asset, because I know without faith, it’s impossible to please God. So, when I’m studying His Word, I don’t hear the Spirit say, “You are so gullible!” Instead, He says, “Woman, you have great faith!” Why? I take in the truth of God’s eternal Word and apply it personally to my life.
This is how we simplify. We increasingly place more of our trust in the Lord. We put off the jaded, former self and put on the new self created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.
