â€œI tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter itâ€ (Mark 10:15)
It pleases God when we come to Him in child-like faith. What is the beauty of such faith?Â It simply believes God! Children do not evaluate first and then believe. No! They believe without any evaluation.
Do you know why many folks arenâ€™t able to believe God wholeheartedly? Because they are evaluating Him, His ways, His words, His miracles and His existence itself.Â God is not against studying Him through His Word. But He makes futile the attempts to evaluate Him with human standards and reasoning.
When God asked Abraham to leave his fatherâ€™s house and his country and start a journey into an unknown place, Abraham didnâ€™t evaluate Godâ€™s voice and intentions. He simply obeyed!
When Daniel was brought into a gentile country as a captive, He never questioned Godâ€™s love and care, but simply loved and obeyed God even in that non-Jewish territory.
When David was often persecuted by his envious father-in-law, he didnâ€™t doubt what God did through the prophet Samuel by anointing him as King of Israel.
When religious sects came against Jesus to stop Him from accomplishing His redemptive work, He didnâ€™t think even once whether His Father has made a wise decision to send Him on this mission!
All through the Scriptures, we see those who pleased God and did great things by trusting Him like a child. They faced small and big issues. But they never evaluated and questioned Godâ€™s ways and plans. They simply loved, believed and obeyed Him!
Are you facing a situation today which forces you to question God or doubt His ways and promises? If so, be assured today thatÂ the solution is not in evaluating God but in believing God!
God has great victories in store for you. You may have heard it a thousand times and you may be fed up of hearing it again. But the truth of the matter is itâ€™s in trusting God in spite of your situation that you experience His goodness and victory!
May Godâ€™s grace strengthen you to walk with Him in child-like faith all through your life.

I had the opportunity to work with children at the church, and they made me so happy, when they gave me hugs, when they smiled at me. And I can not express the joy i got working for them.
We must be like them :D
God bless all children.
This has blessed me a lot. I appreciate it. <3 Praise God! I wanna live a child-like faith today and experience the wonders of God's love..
In the past, i really suffered through relying on my own strength in everything. I don't wanna be God, I want Him to be the Lord in my life. I can't live a day without Him!!!
God wants us to see the awesome things that we have in Him. He wants the eyes of our heart and our understanding to be enlightened so that we might know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe.
With child like faith, things that are logical doesn’t apply to the believer. Renew the mind with your child like faith today! GRACE CANNOT BE BOUGHT! IT’S FREE!
Watch and share!
