Childlike Faith

Psalm 116:1-19

Children know very quickly when they are at their wits end. They call for help as soon as in need or in trouble. They are so sincere and teach us a lot when it comes to our relationship with God also. I don’t know how often our kids have heard some sort of distress and struggle in the family and have suggested prayer and asking God for help as their first response.

As we grow up, we tend to put more trust in ourselves and people then God. We leave prayer as the last resort, calling for help is seen as weakness and pleading for mercy is perceived as drama. But God awais in ready position to help us. He is gracious and compassionate. He cares deeply about you. Like the psalmist here we can say also that God has saved us from death, He has kept our eyes from tears, our feet from stumbling. How can we repay His goodness but with thanksgiving and praise? Alone and together, God has been good to me, to us. We teach out children to say ‘thank you’ when kindness is shown, how much more we should be grateful to our gracious Lord?
