So many times in life we make things more complicated than it has to be. We are always trying to figure everything out with our own thinking. Let’s face it, our thinking is what keeps us in the mess we are in most of the time! God has been telling us to get back to basics and the simple truth.
We have gotten away from the simple truth of God’s word. We haven’t relied on the Holy Ghost to show us the truth. Instead we used our own intellect to say and believe what we thought God’s word was saying. Well how’s that working for ya?
Just look at the church today and your personal life to see that it’s not working. God is saying it’s time to correct some things and that includes some things we changed a long time ago that never needed changing to begin with. There is actually some truth in that old saying “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” We always go from one extreme to the other. We want to change everything or change nothing at all.
I don’t know about you, but I have a lot of things in me that I need changed. I’m pretty sure I changed some things God didn’t want me to along the way. The simple truth requires Holy Ghost! Are you allowing Holy Ghost to teach you God’s simple truth?
John 8:32- And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.
