Dear Child of God,
At that time the disciples came to Jesus and asked, “Who, then, is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?” He called a little child to him, and placed the child among them. And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me.(Matthew 18:1-3)
There’s an old hymn called Jesus loves the little children. What is it about children, that Jesus likened them to the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?
First, we must understand what the kingdom of God is.
The Bible tells us that “the Kingdom of God is not a matter of what we eat or drink, but of living a life of goodness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit”. (Romans 14:17)
Today most adults are far from peace and joy. With so much going on, from financial problems, worries and cares about children, relationships issues, paying the rent/mortgage, to health issues, etc. how can we have peace today? How can we have joy when there is so much pain? How can we have peace in the midst of storms, when life throws us curveballs, when people disappoint or forsake us? When unexpected health problems arise? When all around us crumbles?
It is in those times we must look to the simplicity of faith, and in the words of Jesus, to not be afraid, just believe. (Mark 5:36)
Children trust easily. For the most part, they trust their parents, they trust their teachers, they trust what they see on the tv. They are not weighed down with the concerns of the world, they simply believe what is put before them.
Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” When he had placed his hands on them, he went on from there. (Matthew 19:14)
It’s so easy to explain to them about God, about angels, about how He protects us. They don’t worry about what they will eat, they know they will be taken care of. They don’t worry about what they will wear, they know their parents are going to provide. They don’t worry about where they will sleep, they are confident they will be protected. They wake up early, ready to start the day, because life is about enjoyment.
It’s only somewhere along the way, they grow out of their innocence, they grow out of their simple trust. But Jesus always wants to bring us back to the basics. Reminding us that the key to the kingdom of heaven, the key to living a life of righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit, is to have simple child-like faith.
Simply believe what He says. Without question, without worry, without ifs or buts. Take Him at His word.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:6-7)
God knows every need, every worry, every concern, every care, but He requires us to bring it to Him and then simply trust Him that He will take care of the rest. And that is how we can continually live in the peace of God.
But it’s a daily thing, it’s a daily trusting, it’s a daily committing of ourselves unto the Lord, and just trusting in His peace.
Today my prayer is that you would just trust Him. With everything that is bothering you, trust Him that He will work it out.
Pray with Me: Lord Jesus, I thank you for your promise that if I seek first the kingdom, then all else shall be added unto me. Today I seek your peace, your joy, and your righteousness. Help me to trust you Lord, I bring every care and concern before you Lord and I ask you to take care of all my needs. And now Lord let your perfect peace guard my heart and my mind in Christ Jesus. Amen.
