Keep It Simple

Did you know the Bible tells us to keep it simple? Col 2:8 says to beware lest anyone corrupts you from the simplicity that’s in Jesus. Sometimes we can read a book or listen to someone’s advice and by the time we are done we would have to quit our jobs, sell our belongings and move or do something else pretty radical to follow all the steps and plans we’ve been given. But there is someone who will always lead us and guide us in the way we should go. Should we make a wrong turn he will always re-route us in the right direction. 
The Holy Spirit lives in us to lead and guide us. Most answers to the decisions we have to make are not in the Bible. There is no answer in the Bible, such as where to work, should you marry this person, how to do something, etc. But the Bible tells us how to get an answer…praying and listening. Yesterday I encouraged you to look for promises of God that apply to your situation and pray them. But don’t forget after you prayed them to listen. There are two things the Holy Spirit does with scriptures. Interpret and Apply. He will tell you what it means to you and how to apply it to your life. The greatest gift you have from God is Himself who lives inside of you! Can’t wait to hear what he says to you! Love you all!
