I thought how there is such beauty in the trusting eyes of a child and how precious those eyes are and realized childrens eyes are continually looking up. Why? Because we are above them, we are bigger than they are.
Instantly I was reminded how we, HIS CHILDREN, must look up to our LORD and Father with that same trusting faith.
In Matthew 10 He said to them, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.” And he took the children in his arms, put his hands on them and blessed them.
Receiving it like a child is to look at him with the complete trust and joy knowing HE IS GOD and HE IS GOD and HE IS GOD! Complete, unwavering trust that keeps looking up and is never doubting.
I just recently read about pride in our life and how it can keep us from looking up to HIM and how it causes us look to our self or others and away from knowing who GOD is and from trusting who HE really is. Does He not tell us in HIS word that we are not to be leaning on our own understanding and that we are to be knowing our complete Grace is for not only our past, but for today, and most assuredly for tomorrow… all our tomorrows.
If we are trusting our self in our finances, our wisdom, our strength, our future, our plans, our friends, our food … anything where we are trusting to do anything tells us we are not looking up but looking to our self.
When we have worry and fear we are no longer looking up knowing HE IS GOD and can and will do all things for us. Did he say, “I will do a little for you here and there and you are on your own the rest of the way?” NO!!
He called us out and said “YOU ARE MINE!”
