Simplify

One of the things that God seems to be telling me today is that I need to simplify. I need to stop looking to others to save me. Others can be a help, a loving hug, and an encouragement, but the saving…that’s reserved for Him.

The thoughts He has given me over the past day or so are somewhat random, but point in the same direction:

  • Using my body’s hunger mechanism will take care of the weight my body wants to get rid of.
  • When I am tempted to ignore that God given mechanism, I need to do what is found in James 4:7:

    So humble yourselves before God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

  • I have been wallowing in the pit for the past few days, and flailing around in either shame or desperation. Not knowing what to do, I get the answer from Isaiah 57:15:

    I restore the crushed spirit of the humble and revive the courage of those with repentant hearts.

So, wait for hunger, repent and humble myself before God, resist the devil, and let God get to restoring my crushed spirit and revive my courage….
