Our response to God is just as simple. When He calls, when He prompts, when He whispers, when we see in His Word how to live, if we will just believe Him, that’s all it takes to unlock the kingdom and all of its contents. Faith is the key to the kingdom, and faith is simply believing God.
The incredible truth that we discover as we read Romans chapter four is that it considers Abraham the father of our faith. Abraham had no religion in his life. Moses had the law, but God doesn’t use Moses as the example of faith. Abraham’s example of believing God is what we are called to follow. And when we believe Him, we open our lives up to the same amazing blessings that Abraham received.
As we charge into 2020, let’s remember to keep it simple. Respond to God simply by believing Him. That is all He has ever wanted, and the blessings associated with it are immeasurable. Believe that God sent Jesus. Believe that Jesus is the Savior of the world and receive all that God has for you as His son or daughter. Believe God, and it accounts to you for righteousness.
Father, thank You for making it so simple. I can just believe You, and You count it as righteousness. Thank You for sending Jesus and for His incredible finished work that opens Your kingdom to me. Help me listen for Your voice and be quick to believe You. Thank You for always leading me in triumph. In Jesus’ name, amen!
