God is stirring up something in me lately and as a result some things are starting to bug me.
Now for those of you that know me, you will know that I am, for the most part a very positive person, and yet here I am bugged.
But even more than being bugged I am sad.
Why? Because we are supposed to be a people of simple faith!!!!!!!!
We are supposed to be those who are like children. A people who simply believe God!!
And yet we as Christians have chosen to mostly rely on ourselves, resulting in our becoming a people who do not really believe that God could do “Awesome and Amazing Things” through us or through others.
Jesus himself said in Matthew 19:14, “Let the little children come to me, and stop keeping them away, because the kingdom from heaven belongs to people like these.“
Who does heaven belong too?
Those who simply believe.
Think about it!! When a child is playing outside and they hear the call from their mom “Dinner!” they do not stop and think “hmmm I wonder if I should go inside. There probably is not food there, I will probably look stupid if I go to the table! My friends will think I am a sucker for believing there is food, so I better stay outside even though I am hungry.”
A Child simply goes to the table and is fed!!!
We need to start believing and then acting on the things that God is putting on our hearts!!!! We need to go to His table and be fed!!!
Come on Christians, God wants to change the world through us!!!!!
But He cannot do that if we refuse to come in from the cold!!!
