What Must We Do?

Psalm 42:5
‘Why are you downcast, O my soul? Why the unease within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise Him for the salvation of His presence.’

Every age has its particular problems. Right now we have several. They hold us back from wanting and experiencing more of God. They include: materialism, legalism and busyness. We also live in an age of religious busyness. Instead of experiencing God we have, PROGRAMS, EVENTS, FUNCTIONS, STRUCTURES and COMMITTEES, and a bunch of activities that keep us busy and take our attention. All of these things, however good they may be, can never satisfy the longing in our heart for more of God.
We must simplify our lives. Get rid of things that hold us back or trip us up.
Hebrews 12:1 Let us strip off anything that slows us down or holds us back, and especially those sins that wrap themselves so tightly around our feet and trip us up.
We must get rid of things that would stand in the way. We must not try and impress others, but we must approach God like children. We must expect that God will respond and that we will experience more of God for ourselves.
