“Daddy, what if I stand on the tip of my toes? Can I reach it then?”
“You still won’t be able to reach it, sweetheart.”
The little girl went quiet for a moment and then she jumped up confidently and said, “Daddy, maybe if you carry me up on your shoulder, I would be able to touch it!!”
Childlike faith; how precious that is. No hesitation and doubt; just implicit trust with a confident expectation that it can be done. Jesus taught much about faith and throughout the Bible, we read of His delightful response to those who had great faith.
In the book of Matthew, we read of the great faith of the centurion. When the centurion asked Jesus to just “speak a word and his servant will be healed” (8:8), Jesus marveled and said, “I have not found such great faith” (8:10), “Go your way and as you have believed, so let it be done for you (8:13).
When we have faith in God, we will find all things are possible because He is pleased with those who trust Him implicitly and gladly believe His words. Let childlike faith be evident in your Christian walk with God.
Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.
