MORNINGTIME 2946
 
And they brought young children to him, that he should touch them: and his disciples rebuked those that brought them. But when Jesus saw it, he was much displeased, and said unto them, Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.  Verily I say unto you, WHOSOEVER SHALL NOT RECEIVE THE KINGDOM OF GOD AS A LITTLE CHILD, HE SHALL NOT ENTER THEREIN. Mark 10:13-15. So what's a child got going for them that adults don't have? Simple Faith. A child hasn't yet learned all the reasons why something shouldn't work, or that it will cost too much, or that it will take too long to do. No, they simply believe what they are told to believe, because someone of a higher authority than them told them it was True. They Trust every thing and every one as True, because they have not yet learned otherwise. Mommy and Daddy said so, that settles it, done deal. The stories in the Bible are all True because they simply Believe it to be so. We adults, in the other hand, KNOW the truth, and why things shouldn't work, and why that's impossible, and make up boundaries the Lord needs to stay in so He fits the mold we make Him into. We're smart, and have the Lord all figured out!!! And that's the problem, it's all so complicated and children just don't understand how things work. Like stress, doubt, and fear, all of which must be considered before God can do something. And that's the GOoD News, children don't know all this stuff, THEY JUST BELIEVE. It IS that simple, if the Bible says it, that settles it, let's move on. There's nothing impossible for God, because, He Said So. In a child's eyes, EVERYTHING in the Bible is True, and Normal, and it all Works, because it's all Normal for God to do. Be "childlike", don't let doubt and fear take away your simple Faith. Simply accept ALL the Bible as True, Believe it, AND WATCH THE LORD MOVE IN YOUR LIFE IN WAYS YOU'VE NEVER IMAGINED. It IS that easy to, Be Blessed.
