Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to Him, and he will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:5 NIVUK
Most believers today get so stuck focusing on things God can do to help them “live well”, they never get on with what He calls them to do. His promises are truly wonderful, but all our “system preferences” in life often cause us to forget they are also conditional.
The world is constantly sending out attachments that we forget are lodging in the hidden areas of our heart. Everything our senses interact with in this age is designed to leave its “mark”, so a lasting and eventually crippling connection is developed. Remember, the dirt of this world sticks to our feet even as we follow the Lord’s path. This is why we need each other to help wash it off from time to time.
Clear the cookies by going a little deeper in Christ and His Body every day. Then you will find your system running like it was created to – fast because it is free! God is trustworthy, lets just make sure He can trust us to focus more on Him than we do on the endless amount of things around us.
Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28 NIVUK
