Make God Your “One Thing”
One thing I have desired of the Lord, that will I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life…. —Psalm 27:4 NKJV
Life isn’t supposed to be complicated. Jesus didn’t die so we could live complicated, frustrated, miserable lives. John 10:10 says He died for us so we could have and enjoy life. The minute everything gets complicated, it steals joy. We need to learn how to stop stressing and stop living an excessively busy lifestyle.
The opposite lifestyle is one of simplicity. Simplicity means “single, consisting of one thing, unmingled.” God has dealt with me about living a simpler life. He has shown me that the only way to do this is to just be about “one thing.”
God just wants us to be about Him. He tells us in His Word that we won’t inherit His kingdom if we don’t come to Him very simply as a little child and say, “I believe.”
That almost sounds too easy, and you might want to complicate it...but don’t! God’s plan for you is simple. It may not make sense to your mind, but there’s nothing complicated about God, and He doesn’t want you to be complicated. Come to Him today, saying, “I believe.” Make Him your “One Thing.”
Prayer Starter: God, I believe in You. I don’t want to live burdened by complications, so today, I seek a life of simplicity by making You the “One Thing” that I seek. Lead me in Your simple plan for me.
