I surrendered my heart to the Lord in November, 1985. Since then I have learned some complex things. But I have also learned four simple things that are really the most important. 1. I have learned that God really does love me. 2. I have learned that because He does love me, He really does have my best interests at heart. 3. I have learned that when I pay attention to Him and His Word (the Bible) things are right. 4. I have learned that when I don*t pay attention to Him and His Word things are wrong.
When complex things fit with those four simple truths the complex things are right. When the complex things don*t fit with those four simple truths they are wrong. Satan likes to make things complex and confusing. Sometimes I let him.
1 Corinthians 14:33: For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.
I am usually better off if I remember the wisdom of those four letters that are often meant as an insult. Keep it simple stupid!
