(Luke 18:17 NKJV) "Assuredly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will by no means enter it."
Childlike faith; what is it? What does it mean to receive the kingdom of God as a little child?
Think about little children and how they trust their parents. I remember when my girls were little. They would come running and say "daddy, catch me!". And they would jump, knowing that I would catch them, regardless of whether they were jumping up into my arms or of they were up on their bed or somewhere else a little higher than the ground.
They just knew I would catch them. They never doubted it.
That is childlike faith. That is what God wants us to have in Him. He wants us to trust Him and receive His kingdom in our lives as little children, knowing beyond any doubt that He has everything under control and He will catch us.
We need to let God challenge our intellect and teach us that sometimes things just don't happen the way we expect them to. Sometimes we just plain can't figure everything out, but God is still in control.
We dare you to run and jump into our Daddy's arms today, knowing that He will surely catch you.
