I mistakenly used to think child-like faith was to unquestionably take life and its ups and downs without hesitantly and without question. But, truly my children were always full of questions. When they were afraid they would run to me for an answer to help put their fears to rest. They believed I was there to tell the truth, to assist, protect, and to comfort them. We as God’s children should also know and trust He hears and answers prayer with our best interest at heart. When there is no immediate answer what then? Stand in trust, have faith God will and does fight our battle.
Childlike in Faith
Childlike-faith faces the day without fear;
As long as the one that cares for them is near.
The healthy, well-loved child through faith sees,
A world that holds great promise and beauty.
But in times of trouble when winds of life blow strong,
Childlike-faith listens, and draws close to where they belong.
When an enemy or menacing stranger tries to pull them astray,
The wise, obedient child resists and turns the other way.
The follower of Jesus; the one that has faith to spare;
Will like a child his good news share.
Wise like His Master; his confidence in God above,
Helps him make wise decisions as he trusts in His love.
When the world darkens in its threatening stance,
Childlike; yet with God’s strength, they face circumstance.
Full trusting God hears their prayer and answers the way best;
With supernatural ability they stand, in spiritual armors dressed.
With heart prepared to the battle win,
And yet like the small child, at rest within.
Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God
as a little child shall in no wise enter therein.
Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
