Childlike Trust 


Some people say children are gullible, ready to believe anything, no matter how ridiculous it sounds. The truth is, children aren’t so much gullible as they are trusting. It’s children’s nature to trust unless they’ve experienced something that has taught them otherwise. They trust us to take care of them, they trust us to protect them, they trust us to provide for them. God wants us to know that we are His precious children and to put our complete faith in Him to take care of us. He wants us to lean on Him, just as our children lean on us. There’s only one catch: We must come humbly as little children — sincere, unpretentious, honest, and open — knowing that without Him we can do nothing. If we seek to become and remain childlike in our faith, it will enhance the quality of our life in the most amazing ways.
