Make God Your “One Thing”

John 10: 10, “The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance [to the full, till it overflows].”

Life isn’t supposed to be complicated.

God just wants us to be about Him.

Jesus didn’t die so we could live complicated, frustrated, miserable lives. He died for us so we could 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 my life consists of. Lead me in Your simple plan for me.
