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. Yes, Father, for this is what you were pleased to do.
God the Father does not work as the world works. When picking sports teams on a playground the strongest, fastest, and most skilled individuals get picked first. Yet, God chooses David to face Goliath. 1 Samuel 17:37 is part of David’s response to King Saul, reluctant to send David against Goliath, “The Lord who rescued me from the paw of the lion and the paw of the bear will rescue me from the hand of this Philistine.” Living for God is not about proving your own strength, it is living life counting on God’s strength. This is the child-like faith that we need.
