"I love you, O Lord, my strength." Psalm 18:1
Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it. - Proverbs 22:6
But Jesus said, “Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of heaven.”
In a church we attended some years ago we would have a “children’s lesson” before the “Big Church” sermon. It was my turn and I had found one entitled “An Act of Faith”. The object was to use water absorbing polymer crystals and water and the crystals turned the water into a solid. In theory, I would pour the water over the crystals, then turn the cup upside down over the child’s head and the child would not get wet. The child was to have faith in me that I would not get them wet. So, I found my willing victim…excuse me…my volunteer to perform the activity. It started out by asking if anyone could tell me what faith is. Faith is trusting and believing something is true even though we cannot see, touch, hear or smell it. The Bible says in Hebrews 11:1 “Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.” Who has seen God? No one that I know of since Jesus ascended from this earth, but Jesus tells us in John 20:29 “… blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.” We so need to remember to trust and have faith in our Lord God that He is who He says He is…Mighty, Faithful, Eternal, Sovereign, Holy, Just, Wise, Merciful and the list goes on!!! Oh! and my volunteer??? I ended up pouring the stuff all over him. Actually, turned out to be a better object lesson than I thought!
Have faith in God, He’s on His throne, Have faith in God, He watches over His own.
