The last few months have been one of the biggest blessings for me. My son Kyle has been asking all kinds of questions about Jesus and what it all means to be saved. He has this sweet image in his head of a super hero, cape-wearing, savior who can do everything; with no doubt that Jesus will come through for him. His prayers are so matter-of-fact. He knows that Jesus will come to the rescue and turn all the little wrongs in his 7-year-old life right. He even knows that Jesus is not always going to give him what he wants, but with such confidence says, “It’s ok. Jesus knows what is best for me.”
Childlike faith is so pure, straightforward, innocent, trusting and honest. It is eager to think, to learn, to take root and grow. In the Bible, God refers to us as His children. In His plan, He created children to be this way, maybe more as a model for us adults, to come back to.
Ephesians 5:1 Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children.
Kyle has helped me to remember to humble myself before the Lord. I pray to have the faith that my son has everyday. I love that God has thought me so much through this journey of motherhood. I never want to take a day for granted or miss out on the things God has for me.
My prayer for all parents is that you never stop seeing God as your superhero, that you have a childlike faith that knows beyond all things that He will always rescue you, that you will never question God’s decision for you, and that you know His love for you is greater than anything.
Matthew 18:4 Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
