The Kingdom of Heaven

The Kingdom of Heaven belongs to those who have childlike faith.

The Kingdom of Heaven

Here are a few words that describe what it means to be childlike:
innocent
artless
guileless
unworldly
trusting
uninhibited
natural
spontaneous

When I read these words, I want to become more childlike.  I want to be more trusting, uninhibited and spontaneously joyful in my life. I want to twirl around with a smile on my face and hope for the future. I want to be expectant about the next wonderful thing that my Father in heaven has in mind for you and for me.

Be More Childlike

One day some parents brought their children to Jesus so he could lay his hands on them and pray for them.

childlike

But the disciples scolded the parents for bothering Jesus.  But Jesus said,

“Let the little children come to me.

Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of Heaven belongs

to those who are like these children.”

Today, Let’s make a choice to embrace a child-like heart. Take joy in the children in your life and to endeavor to be more like them. Fill your heart with wonder and trust God.

Childlike Faith (Link up)

Do you have childlike faith for what you need?

Trust God

One year our daughter Angela longed to take ballet so together we prayed for ballet slippers. The next week we just happened to find ballet slippers in her exact size at a garage sale. You could see faith in her little eyes. Then God put it on her grandma’s heart to pay for dance lessons.  Today when I see my adult daughters dancing, and teaching others to dance,  I am reminded to trust God and watch Him provide through childlike faith.

 “And calling to him a child, he put him in the midst of them and said, “Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.” (Matthew 18:2-4 ESV)

God’s Voice

Do you want to stay out of trouble?  I don’t know if you’re a troublemaker, but I tend to fall down at times. I tend to get distracted. I tend to drift. But God is able to watch over me and to watch out for me and to protect me.  So if I’ve gone astray I just have to stop and listen and turn in the direction of his voice.  If you’re wondering which way to go, take a moment and listen to his voice.  His voice will call you home. His voice will lead you to safety.

God's Voice will lead you

One of the things I love about God’s word is how practical it is.

This is a prayer from the Bible

“Keep watch over me and keep me out of trouble;

Don’t let me down when I run to you.”

Psalm 25:20 MSG

We can trust Him to keep us from trouble. If you listen, he will warn you and keep watch over you.

Friendship with God

Do you want God to confide in you?  Jesus said,

Friendship with God

“When you obey my commandments, you remain in my love, just as I obey my Father’s commandments and remain in his love. 11 I have told you these things so that you will be filled with my joy. Yes, your joy will overflow! 12 This is my commandment: Love each other in the same way I have loved you. 13 There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. 14 You are my friends if you do what I command. 15 I no longer call you slaves, because a master doesn’t confide in his slaves. Now you are my friends, since I have told you everything the Father told me. 16 You didn’t choose me. I chose you. I appointed you to go and produce lasting fruit, so that the Father will give you whatever you ask for, using my name.” John 15:11-16

When we obey Jesus we are no longer just servants but we are his friends.  Friendship with God is when he begins to confide in you. He intimately shares His hopes and His dreams with you. Friendship with God is an intimacy of walking with Him, hearing is voice and obeying His will.  Friendship with God is an attainable goal. Every single one of us have the invitation to be friends with God. You can be as close to God as you desire. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.

“God-friendship is for God-worshipers;

They are the ones he confides in.”

Psalm 25:14 MSG

Fresh Start

Aren’t you glad that God forgets and forgives the mistakes of your youth?

fresh start

I don’t know about you, but I have made a lot of mistakes in my past.  And I’m glad that God forgets the wild oats I may have sown.  I’m glad that he forgets the mistakes that I have made.  I’m glad he forgives me when I sin and I want to encourage you just like I encourage myself that you can go to God and be completely open and honest with him.  He’s the one that sees everything and knows everything and yet he loves you more than anyone else in the world.  He’s created you and he’s got a plan for you to walk out.

“Forget that I sowed wild oats;

Mark me with your sign of love.

Plan only the best for me, God!

8 God is fair and just;

He corrects the misdirected,

Sends them in the right direction.

Psalm 25:7-8 MSG

You can trust God to give you a fresh start.

Father’s Hand

No matter how old you are, you can still look up to heaven, reach up and take your Father’s hand. With child-like hope and expectancy, you can trust that your father in heaven will teach you how to walk. You won’t have to be alone. If you stumble and fall He is there to pick you up.

Father's Hand

Jesus talked about how we need to come to the Father as little children.  A child is open to learn.  A child is able to receive direction. There’s a wonder in a child’s heart when they are thinking about the future and they can trust that hand that they hold.

Do you have trouble asking for help when you need it? Do you have trouble trusting in a heavenly father? Do the wounds that you have suffered on earth, cloud your vision of a good God in heaven?

It all requires faith — faith like a little child. So today have a child-like heart and reach up and take His hand.

“Take me by the hand;

Lead me down the path of truth.

You are my Savior, aren’t you?”

Psalm 25:5 MSG

Jesus encourages each of us to come to God like a child…. Like a trusting child, reach up and take your father’s hand to lead you and guide you today.
