The Faith of a Child

Two Sundays ago our family watched a video by Louie Giglio. He talks about the massiveness of the universe and how God in His infinite wisdom and creativity created the cosmos. Creation declares the glory of God! He then talks about people. God made us in His image. He loves us so much and so interested in us that he even knows the hairs that on our head. Nothing is too big for God and nothing is too little.

As I talking to Josiah about how wonderful it is that God is so awesome and yet cares about the intricacies of our lives, Josiah simply responds, "I know that."

Maybe he does. Maybe Josiah has a better grasp on the awesomeness of God and His love for us than I do. The faith of a Child. He doesn't have the worries, the hurts, the disappointments, the betrayals and more that affects our views, that makes us focus more on ourselves than on our Creator and Savior for whom nothing is too difficult and Who tells us to cast our cares upon Him for He will give us rest.

"The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows His handiwork." Psalm 19:1

“All things were made through Him and for Him. He is before all things and in Him all things hold together.” Colossians 1:16b-17
