Keeping It Simple

The Lord said, “Go out and stand on the mountain in the presence of the Lord, for the Lord is about to pass by.” Then a great and powerful wind tore the mountains apart and shattered the rocks before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake.—1 Kings 19:11 (NIV)

It’s not always easy to listen to God’s whispers of guidance and have faith in the outcome. Our human nature causes us to question why and want to solve the problem our own way. When you are in need of His guidance, don’t rely solely on your own thinking. Pray for the clarity to hear and follow His will.

Lord God, life isn’t as complicated as I sometimes make it. Help me follow Your direction and stay on course.
