Come Like A Child

by Teneale Williams

The most beautiful part of being a believer of Christ Jesus is that we have access and that we get to become Sons and Daughters of God. We get to be heirs of His Kingdom and we get access to unending Grace, Mercy, Love, Peace and Joy in the Holy Spirit…

In order to come to Him like a child, we have to understand what it means to be called a Child of God.

In 2 Samuel 7:14-16 in the NLT says: “I will be his father, and he will be my son. If he sins, I will correct and discipline him with the rod, like any father would do. But my favor will not be taken from him as I took it from Saul, whom I removed from your sight. Your house and your kingdom will continue before me for all time, and your throne will be secure forever.’”

In this passage, the Lord is speaking a promise to David and is sharing His heart towards him, as his Son. Today, this is applicable as we know that this is what Jesus Christ has made available to us through His glorious death, resurrection and ascension as we know Ephesians 1:5 says that God has adopted us into His family through Jesus Christ. The Passion Translation says that it was always God’s plan to have us as His children – isn’t that beautiful?

These are important scriptures to note in being able to take on the full identity as a Child of the Living God. As an heir, with access to everything that Jesus Christ Himself had access to. It makes it easier when we come to the Lord in the secret place, it makes it easier to have faith, it makes it easier to love others when we know how He has adopted us and chosen us even though we were at one stage the most undeserving of it.

Matthew 18:3 says that unless we come like Children, we will not be able to enter the Kingdom of God. So when we approach the Father, when we approach others, we always have to be in submission to God.

When we ask Him something, we have to believe that we have received, because we have been taught in His Word that whatever we ask in Jesus name, will be given and done unto us.

Coming as a Child includes having Crazy Faith, Wild Dreams, Out-of-This-World Hope and Abundant Love.

This will be continued 😊🙏
