The message of God is so simple that many simply can’t comprehend. In fact man likes to complicate it in order to try to show their own intellect or for their own selfish agendas. We often ask the question,”How?” When the Lord simply says,”Do.”
In 2 Kings 5 there was a man named Naaman who had leprosy. He received Godly direction but struggled with this due to how simple it was. In fact it even offended him due to his stature but through the council of his friends he was convinced to take that simple step of faith to receive the blessing before him.
As a child we are much more trusting than as we are as an adult. If Naaman had been a child and received this direction from an adult then he probably would not have struggled with the how and simply done what he was told. See as we grow older we tend to complicate matters and want details rather than simply trusting in God.
For the Lord says in Isaiah 55,”As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.”
Breakthroughs come to those who believe and simply take those steps in faith…It is when we complicate the steps that we often become frozen where we are. In other words simply climb and praise God for the view without allowing your fears to rob you of the joy.
