The innocence and trust of a child is beautiful. Their seeming unawareness of danger and vitality in the simplest of things bring such joy. They smile and laugh and you see the Glory of God. As a child, they totally trust, only as they get older the world teaches them to distrust. Our hearts can remain soft and ready to respond as we live in child-like faith. Child-like faith sees only God and He is bigger than any obstacle. This simple faith dispels sophisticated darkness. Just as the parent will give their life for their child so has Christ already done this for us. His love is limitless. Our father unconditional acceptance and pleasure captivates us. In Matthew 8:3-4 “And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven”.
How can we enter into childlike faith – here are a few meditations:
- Don’t over – think. Your in your Daddy’s hands. Enjoy the ride.
- Ask Daddy to show you His plan of goodness in all things.
- Believe that Daddy has brought you to were ever you are, so that HE will build you and instruct you. He has His best in mind for you.
- Purpose to delight in the Lord and not take yourself so seriously. Each moment is a gift.
In Zephaniah 3:17 “The Lord thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing”. Enjoy the embrace of your Daddy today, feel His strength all around you. Hear His voice of love and his joyous laughter over you.Christ is walking with you, enjoying you, carrying you into His perfect plan. It is all going to be OK.
