DAILY DEVOTIONAL: SIMPLY BELIEVE
Topic: Simply Believe
Memorise: Verily I unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein. Mark 10:15 KJV
Read: Mark 10:13-16 13 And they brought young children to him, that he should touch them: and his disciples rebuked those that brought them. 10:14 But when Jesus saw it, he was much displeased, and said unto them, Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God. 10:15 Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein. 10:16 And he took them up in his arms, put his hands upon them, and blessed them.
Human theories and academic prowess must submit to the lordship of our God. The natural man won’t understand the things of the spirit neither can he know them because everything about God must be spiritually discerned. You need a humbled spirit and life of simplicity to embrace the knowledge of God and to come to the place of His blessings. Pride and arrogance will keep you far from the Maker of heaven and the earth but a life in humility and godliness will make you a direct candidate and recipient of His unfailing love. I pray nothing will stop you from getting the best of God on the earth in Jesus’ mighty name.
Children are unique in their approach to knowledge acquisition. There’s no ambiguity in their sense of judgement and that’s why they believe simply and operate in innocence. Little wonder the Lord has appointed angels to work with them and to guide them. You will also get better in your pursuits and be greatly blessed if you will simply believe the word of God with every readiness to act without questions or complaints. God’s word and promises will not work for you except you are ready to believe and act in faith. Anything done outside genuine faith is bound to fail. Therefore, receive that simple spirit similar to those of little children and begin to act on the word of the Lord for your benefit. Reject pride and subdue your earthly experience to get the knowledge and wisdom of God. You must humble yourself under God’s mighty arms if you want Him to promote you in all realms of life. The Lord is ready to help you in winning those battles endangering your success and wellbeing if you will simple believe and submit to His Lordship without complaints.
Pray with me: Father, please give me the grace to embrace your word and promises in their simplicity. Deliver me from the complexities of life and help me to live by faith in your word.
