CHILDLIKE FAITH

Matthew 19:14 “Jesus said, ‘Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.’”

          Children are a wonderful blessing from God. They are remarkable creations. As they grow they begin to look to us for sustenance and assistance. They start to rely on us and trust us. Trust is synonymous with faith and it is there that our comparison lies; we are to have faith and trust in our God the way a small child has faith and trust in their parents. We take care of our children, God takes care of us. Logic has nothing to do with it. Finances and cool calculations have nothing to do with it. It’s not anything that we have to figure out; it’s simply learning to rely on God for everything. It is more difficult for an individual who wasn’t brought up in a home whose parents have strong faith. We grow up learning to question anything and everything we don’t understand. Faith in God isn’t something that is all that easy to understand in the beginning. Sometimes it never does make a whole lot of sense to us, believing in an unseen spirit being and all. But just as that small child trusts their parents without hesitation, we too are to trust the One who created us in our mother’s womb as well.          
          The kingdom of heaven is made up of those who have readily and unhesitatingly received and believed in the One who is unseen. While there is an element of mystery to it all, becoming comfortable in our faith erases that. Eventually it is not mysterious at all as we rely more and more on the maker of the stars and the heavens. It strikes me as odd that some folks would rather bash faith as something for the weak minded, instead of seriously considering it as an alternative to the way they are living. Selfish, self-absorbed people who have no intention of letting go of the power and control they think they have over their own lives. Little do they realize that they actually have no power or control over anything. We all must understand what the kingdom of heaven truly is: a place where evil cannot dwell and faith, trust, peace and mercy reside. It takes seeing it through the eyes of a child to understand.

WALK WITH THE KING TODAY AND BE A BLESSING!!
