The Importance of Childlike Faith

A group of young children praying

And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.”—Matthew 18:3–4 (NIV)

When life seems out of control, instead of trying to figure out why something has happened or how God allowed it—turn your questions to trust and your frustration into faith. Instead of driving yourself crazy trying to fix things, let go of your grip and put your focus on generating genuine childlike faith.

Today's Prayer:

Lord God, help me set aside the worries and distractions in my heart so that I can fully feel Your presence.
