At that time Jesus said, “I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children. - Matthew 11:25

Dear Jesus,

When the world questions the foundations of my faith I get anxious thinking I must be a fool to cling to such supernatural claims.  Many have scoffed at the idea of a six day creation.   They wink at the thought that you are also God or that there is a trinity.   That's why I love this sentence you spoke to your father in front of your disciples.  The spiritual realities that save us are revealed to the tender child's heart in us.  I know that I am loved as a special creation of God because you told me so. I know that I am loved as a redeemed child of God because you have told me about your death on the cross.  I know that I will someday see you and my loved ones again in heaven because you have promised it.These are the truths that hold up my childlike faith.  You have given them to me.  I did not reason my way into believing them.  Help me to live in the wisdom that comes from faith in clear and simple truths that you have spoken into my heart.  I don't feel like a fool when I trust what you have taught me.  I feel like an innocent child. Thanks for restoring me to the purity of childlike faith.

Trusting in the supernatural promises of God is not foolish. It's supernatural faith.
