Just Do It!

"We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take EVERY THOUGHT captive to obey Christ."-2 Corinthians 10:5 
"Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will." Romans 12:2 
Sometimes in life, we try to reason logically the things of God. We try to make "sense" of it all from an intellectual perspective. Speaking from my perspective, I have found that things usually begin to unravel and fall apart when I try to make logical sense of the things of God in my life. 
In Matthew, Christ said "Father...You have hidden these things from the wise and intelligent and have revealed them to infants." What I've come to realize is that the simple answer to an unconfused life in Christ is to follow the nudging of the Holy Spirit and - as Nike would say - Just Do It! 
Clarity, simplicity and peace in life come through total, humble obedience to His will. Confusion, unrest and chaos occur when I let my brain get in the way of my heart as it applies to His call and try to reason it out. 
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord. "As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts." Is 55:8-9.  
Trust Him today and stop trying to figure Him out. The first thing required of faith is to ACT, not THINK. You can do it...Just Do It!!!
