21 Days of Prayer and Fasting: January 24

Day Seventeen

“Your testimonies are wonderful; therefore my soul keeps them. The entrance of Your words gives light; it gives understanding to the simple.” Psalm 119:129-130

How simple is your life?? How simple is your faith?? The word simple means plain, uncomplicated; free from dishonesty or vanity. Simple is in. Complex is out. Simple is in. Simple works. People respond to simple. Albert Einstein said, “Out of complexity, find simplicity.” We need a simple reminder this morning, to keep our faith simple. Jesus reminded Martha, “You are worried and bothered about so many things…”(Luke 10:41). I really need to hear these words this morning. I can get worried about so many trivial things and miss the very best that God has for me today!! The enemy of simplicity is hurry. We are in a hurry going in so many different directions, that we miss the simple, yet profound presence of Almighty God. Dallas Willard said, “Ruthlessly eliminate hurry from your life.” Our lives have become so complex because we are in a hurry to be in a hurry!!

Take some time this morning, just to dial it down and wait on God!! God is ready to simplify your life if you would just put your trust in Him. God wants to give you a gift this morning: a simple faith!! Take the time to unwrap the gift and put your hope in Jesus!! It’s time to join the simple revolution!!
