The Upper Room 7th March 2024 Devotional: Childlike Faith

Read and Study Today’s The Upper Room Daily Devotional for March 7, 2024 Message written by David E. Hedrick (Georgia, USA). God bless you as you study today! Please share with your friends and loved ones.


TODAY’S READING
1 Samuel 17:32-37, 45-50

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
God is my helper.

Jesus said, “Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.” – Mark 10:15 (NIV)

Eli was four years old and learning to swim. He could cross the shallow end of the pool with ease, but he had been afraid of swimming across the deep end. Then in one swim lesson, Eli did it.

As we were walking up to the house, I encouraged him about his monumental accomplishment. I asked him, “How did you do it?” Without hesitation, Eli said, “God helped me.” I thought, If only my first thought would be, “God helped me,” when I face huge challenges in my life! Where would I be in my walk with God?

Jesus loved children for their simple faith. They were willing to climb up into his arms and rest, knowing that Jesus loved and protected them. God’s power is made perfect in childlike faith. David demonstrated childlike faith when he used a stone from the creek to slay Goliath. (See 1 Sam. 17.) The stones weren’t magical, but David’s faith in God overpowered the giant.

The next time we face overwhelming fear, I pray we have the childlike faith to cross the deep end and entrust ourselves to God. God will help us!

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear God, whenever we are afraid, help us to trust you with childlike faith. Amen.

PRAYER FOCUS
People learning to swim
