Keeping it simple, believing God simply!

As human beings we make life so complicated.  We make everything about life complicated.  That's why it pleased God to save us through the simplicity of the cross and Christ crucified.  To some the fact that we can just believe on Jesus Christ and get saved, is foolishness.  The bible says the foolishness of the cross pleased God.  Why??  What can this tell us about how God wants us to operate on a daily basis.  Well, lets see..............He speaks about having the faith of a child in the gospels.  He says in order to enter the Kingdom of Heaven we must receive it as a little child.  What does that tell you???  Hmm-mmm,  children are not worried about keeping a bunch of laws.  They are not worried about getting it right.  Children have awesome faith!  They will believe what you tell them, simply because you said it.  Will we believe what God says, simply because He said it????  Will we believe we are healed simply because He said it???  Will we believe that He is able to do exceedingly and abundantly beyond what we are able to ask or think simply because He said it.  When my daughter asks me for something and I say I will get it for her,  it doesn't always mean right away.  Sometimes, months pass.......and my daughter says to me "Mommy, remember you said you were going to get me this?"  Guess what, she reminds me and I get it for her.  That's why it's important to pray God's promises back to Him.  It's not for Him (he does not need a reminder) it's for us.  To remind us, that He will do what He says He will do
