I have been told to "not make things more difficult than they need to be." Sometimes in the heat of the moment, we think we are doing what needs to be done, but we create more work for ourselves. During these times, we need to take a step back to gain an understanding of the situation and the next steps.
As we approach life, both our daily routines and our spiritual journeys, we will encounter times that challenge us. If we try to overcome these situations on our own, we may end up making things more difficult than they need to be. Instead of relying on ourselves, we need to take a step back and call on God. God can help us gain insight and understanding. His Word and the direction we receive through prayer can give us understanding. He can simplify the challenges we face and unfold an understanding in our lives!
When presented with challenges, call on God and allow Him to provide understanding!
Thank You for the guidance that You provide for me. Help me to always step back and call on You for understanding. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
