Why do we do it?

Why do we make faith more complicated than it is?

I just came out of a bout of what I call “spiritual flu“.  These happen because I am a messy human with a sin nature.  I hate it.  But it is what it is.  I am just thankful that I have Jesus, because He is the only One who can save me (Romans 7:14-25).

There is one thing, though that I think is going to help me when this happens again:  getting down to the crux of the matter by answering this question:

Is God Trustworthy?

If the answer is yes, then I must trust Him.  That is good.  My brain likes that.  It is logic.  It is an if-then statement

(If God is not trustworthy, then I have bigger fish to fry, but it doesn’t matter because He is trustworthy.  So back to the previous statement:  God is trustworthy.)

So by eliminating any yeah buts or what if’s or emotion from the equation, we end up with faith.  God is trustworthy, so I must trust Him.
