Having a Child-like Faith
…Put your hope in the Lord, both now and forever.------Psalm 131:3
Well, here we are in 2015, a NEW year, a NEW day, and a NEW week coming. We are facing NEW challenges, NEW opportunities, NEW decisions and possibly NEW problems and heartaches. Every NEW YEAR comes with its own myriad of UNEXPECTED situations, GOOD or BAD. Some of which we have NO CONTROL OVER, but nevertheless, we MUST face them and DEAL with them.
Now the question is HOW do we DEAL with them? Do we try to take matters into our own hands and thus end up making a MESS of things? Do we get PANICKED and FREAK–OUT? Do we make the RIGHT decisions? Should I do this or not?
Well, I am here to tell you that you do NOT have to FACE a NEW YEAR, a NEW MONTH, a NEW WEEK or a NEW DAY ALONE.
When we give our hearts and lives to God, He PROMISES to NEVER leave us nor forsake us. And when we come to Him, in CHILD-LIKE FAITH, with WHATEVER we are FACING, He is THERE to OFFER guidance and HELP in our time of NEED. So as the Scripture says: “Put your hope in the Lord, both now and forever.” Then we can FACE a NEW anything, because we have the HELP of ALMIGHTY GOD.
If you are apprehensive or terrified at the thought of FACING the UNKNOWN, and have NEVER given your heart and life to God, you have NO HOPE for PEACE, COMFORT, or SOUND JUDGMENT for a NEW YEAR. But you can have that HOPE, by: CONFESSING your sins to God and asking for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE, in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God. Then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION. And FACE a NEW ANYTHING with HOPE, FAITH, and TRUST in the ALMIGHTY GOD!! Do it NOW, while you STILL can. He’s waiting!!!
