Faith Like a Child

"But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But he must ask in faith without any doubting, for the one who doubts is like the surf of the sea, driven and tossed by the wind. For that man ought not to expect that he will receive anything from the Lord, being a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways." - James 1:5-8

We've all heard the expression, "Like a child on Christmas morning." There's nothing quite as cute as a young child on Christmas morning as they wake up (usually much earlier than normal) with excitement and expectation for what is to come. They are rarely deterred by doubt. This is why Jesus encouraged His disciples, "Truly I say to you, unless you become like children, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven" (Matthew 18:3). There is an innocence to their fear of doubt that we can learn a lot from. As we approach our good Father with our desires and requests, we must do so with excitement and expectation! He desires good things for His children! So let us "wake up" to this reality like children on Christmas and be expectant for what God might do!

When you approach God, do you do so knowing that you come to the Ruler of the universe who has promised you great and glorious things?

Need Your Power

"Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us" - Ephesians 3:20

As human beings, you and I are limited in what we can accomplish. We may have talent, intelligence, etc., but the truth is, we all have a limit. We are capable of what we are capable of and no more. When it comes to spiritual things, we all fall short. None of us have the power we need to accomplish anything. When we surrender our lives to God and place our faith in His accomplishments for us, we have all the power that we need (2 Peter 1:3). God says that, when we ask, He works to accomplish what we need. Our only responsibility is to ask in faith for Him to do it.

Have you been trying to accomplish things apart from Him?
