There are some things in life that are just plain simple. They are free from complex issues and misunderstandings. There are certainly more things that are extremely complicated and difficult as well. Obedience is a term that is mostly simple. However, the consequences of obedience can be complicated and difficult.I think living for the Lord and following Him is simple, but not easy or without challenges. Jeremiah is an example of obedience. Check this out…

He is the Potter – I am the clay

 This is the word the Lord spoke to Jeremiah: 2 “Go down to the potter’s house, and I will give you my message there.” 3 So I went down to the potter’s house and saw him working at the potter’s wheel.  4 He was using his hands to make a pot from clay, but something went wrong with it. So he used that clay to make another pot the way he wanted it to be. 5 Then the Lord spoke his word to me: 6 “Family of Israel, can’t I do the same thing with you?” says the Lord. “You are in my hands like the clay in the potter’s hands. (Jeremiah 18:1-6 NCV)


Jeremiah was told to go and he went! That is a powerful word for me. I need to listen to the Lord telling where to go, when to go and what to do when I get there. He was told to go and he went…that’s simple obedience.

I want to simply obey the Lord!

 Pressing On!
