Simple, Childlike Faith

I want you to have a simple meeting with God that will change your life. It has to be very personal to you. It cannot be what someone else experienced; it must be your experience. “The whole earth is full of His glory” (Isaiah 6:3).[i] We are headed for some fantastic days and the limitations that we have had are going to be removed—especially the financial limitations. God is going to release all the resources necessary for “the little flock” to do the job. Praise the Lord! We are going to do it in the name of the Lord.

 

“Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has chosen gladly to give you the kingdom.” (Luke 12:32)

 

We need to catch up with what God has opened the door for us to experience. In Genesis, we read that God created the heavens and the earth together. But we accept this idea of the separation of the Church visible and invisible because we do not have the simplicity of faith. The Lord returns with a great host (Revelation 19:14). It is part of a whole picture that is going to take place and it is right on us. We are going to witness the great involvement of all the saints of all the ages. Those in the great “cloud of witnesses surrounding us” are beginning to minister in an unseen way (Hebrews 12:1). There is really only one realm—God is the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, so, “He is not the God of the dead but of the living” (Matthew 22:32). He is the God of all creation.

 

We are surrounded by this great cloud of witnesses that are with us now. And one thing they have to give us is this tremendous awareness of the love of the Father for each one of us. The indescribable love of God is being beamed toward us (1 John 3:1). His care, His compassion, His grace that is being ministered right now to our hearts and to our spirits. Do not let anything block it. Be drenched in His presence. Believe in the Lord with all your heart; with childlike simplicity, just believe His Word. Whatever we have gone through, it is not worth putting up a wall to Him. God is real and His Word is real!

 

Touch the Lord with a simple, childlike faith in a love relationship with your Father. God has hidden the revelation of these things from the wise and intelligent and has revealed them to babes (Matthew 11:25). So, we are just going to look up and say, “Dear Father, give us this simple, childlike faith.” It is that simple. We “put on the Lord Jesus Christ” (Romans 13:14). We receive what He is imparting. We receive the healings we need. Just reach to Him with a simple faith that says, “Dear Father, I just receive it. Reveal Yourself to me.”

 

Like a little baby who reaches out to touch the moonbeams, you can simply reach out to the rays of heaven that are coming down to you and believe to see every Word fulfilled. When you are lying in bed tonight, I want you to just reach into Him and say, “Lord, bathe me in Your presence. You are right here and I take it.” It is Your Word, Father, that says we will be changed into the image of Your Son (Romans 8:29).
