Faith Like a Child

Written by Steven Baird

Continued from page 1

As complicated as a cell-phone, a single human cell is thousands of times more intricate and complex that even our most advanced computers and we are made up of millions of cells. So why wouldn’trepparttar same criteria be required for our creation as it is for cell-phones and other computers? Because that would mean we would have to answer to somebody. We would no longer be able to live our livesrepparttar 148507 way we wanted to, but would rather have to admit we are answerable to our creator. Pride. Pride in thinking we know what is best, pride in our “own” advances, and yes even pride that we know more than God.

Children don’t suffer from this problem. They don’t know pride. They do however know what they are taught. If they are taught that God’s word is truth and thatrepparttar 148508 Bible isrepparttar 148509 “History Book ofrepparttar 148510 Universe,” they will believe it and defend it. Oh how I wish I could haverepparttar 148511 faith of a child. To simply open up God’s word and not question, but rather simply see truth.

When isrepparttar 148512 last time you had a child like faith? When isrepparttar 148513 last time you simply sat under a tree in a park and listened torepparttar 148514 sounds around you and looked at allrepparttar 148515 birds and other wildlife? When isrepparttar 148516 last time you just sat there and feltrepparttar 148517 breeze brush your skin and you looked up into a cloudless, bright blue sky asrepparttar 148518 leaves ofrepparttar 148519 trees swayed overhead? When isrepparttar 148520 last time you were simply still and were not trying to figure anything out? When isrepparttar 148521 last time you let God reveal himself to you through his creation?

Psalm 19:1-4 “The heavens tellrepparttar 148522 glory of God, andrepparttar 148523 skies announce what his hands have made. Day after Day they tellrepparttar 148524 story; night after night they tell it again. They have no speech or words; they have no voice to be heard. But their message goes out throughrepparttar 148525 world; their words go everywhere on earth.”

If an animal like Sea Biscuit could influence people, can you imagine what Jesus Christ can do with you? Hebrews 11 says, "that our life with Christ is built upon what we believe not by what we see.” At times in our Christian walk we need those around us that believe in Christ, in us and have a little faith even when we can’t see our future. Hopefully, if you are willing, sooner or later that confidence rubs off and we take hold of Gods will for our lives. That’s why small groups and close Christian friends are so important in our walk with Christ. Other people can berepparttar glue that holds us together when at times we seem to be falling apart. As in horse racing so it is in our life with Christ, it’s notrepparttar 148420 start that counts it’s finishing strong.

Never underestimaterepparttar 148421 power of small groups and close friends. If it weren’t for small groups, close friends and people who believe in me, there have been times during this past year, I don’t know what I would have done without them all. Never turn down an invitation from God to fellowship with a close group of friends, participate in an ABF class, or just share some quality time praying and believing in something or someone. Those four men never knew how far a hope, a prayer and a horse could go, but with God all things are possible.
