An Uncomplicated Faith

A friend wrote this to me last week:

"God is not looking for COMPLICATED faith–He’s looking for simple, wholehearted, childlike faith. It’s actually us who complicates things by measuring out our faith with a teaspoon. So when Jesus says “according to your faith, so shall it be done”, the question we have to wrestle with is, do we want God to move in teaspoon sizes or in mountain moving sizes? If we want God to move mountains, then we’re going to have to tear some holes in someone’s ceiling and lower our friend to Jesus, if that’s what it will take.”

Have any mountains that need moving? So do I.

Let’s ask God today for an uncomplicated faith, one that actually takes him at his Word.
