I trust God that everyone is doing very fine and it's my pleasure connecting with you once again.
If you read the previous post on 'that desire might be a mistake' you would agree with me that we have all been there at some point of our lives. I have wanted things God did not supply, craved what is not in His plans for me. In the end, i (my Faith) have (has) felt inadequate and in fact sometimes withdrawn or unworthy.
This brings me to today's discussion of being child-like in our walk with Christ.
In Matthew 18:3-4, Jesus answered and said, “I tell you the truth, unless you turn from your sins and become like little children, you will never get into the Kingdom of Heaven. So anyone who becomes as humble as this little child is the greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven.
Children are characterised by many things one of which is how a child trusts totally and 'blindly'. Let me put this in better perspective:
My 15months old son gets angry (and cries) when I tell him he can't have something, like licking too much Menthol or a cold drink. After a little moment of tears, he forgets about it and comes to me for something else. He doesn't stay away because I earlier refused him something(s) which by the way is a show of humility. He comes to me again and again. I reckon that he understands how much I love him regardless of what I give or don't give him.
Sometimes our experiences as believers make us stay away from Christ but in actuality, He is the answer and ours is to draw near to Him no matter what.
Don't let your walk with God be situational/circumstantial, live in the revelation of Him and His word. The same way children relate with their parents on the basis of the bond they perceive .
Be lowly in heart and return to Jesus because His plans for you are thoughts of good and not of evil - Jeremiah 29:11
Of course, I'm not oblivious to the fact that the desperation in some of our desires makes the promises of God seem untrue. Beware! Let God be true and every man a liar. Come to Him as a child would to his/her parents no matter what.
Tell Him your concerns, worries and fears. Take that burden to Him, he wants to hear from you. Tell it to Jesus like a toddler would to his parents. Believe His word like a child believes the words of His parents. Come just as you are.
Loads of love
