Trust in God's Plan for You - Above what you know, By Christian N.

Trust in God's Plan for You - Above what you know

By Christian N.
Matthew 11:25 & 26

"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."

1. The Father has revealed these things to the little children. In this passage Jesus is not talking about age, but faith. Someone who has earned a Masters in philosophy or divinity, and pursues leadership, without being called by God to do so, will often weaken in their faith. Why? Well some old family friends of my dad's said it was because they learned so much, that they could not understand how anything could be outside of the rules of nature that they have learned. For example, look at Joshua chapter 10. To scientists and astrologists, the impossible happened. Even if God had told them that this was coming, their doubt would have cast that out because they trust what they have learned over what God says and can do. Time stopped until the battle of the Israelites versus the Amorites had been won. Joshua, who probably knew nothing about astronomy, believed that God would lead them to victory, because he had faith.
2. "Yes, Father for this is what you were pleased to do." Not, please, will please, are pleased, but were pleased. This is past tense; God has already anointed you as a spokesman to the world, and it doesn’t matter if you run like Jonah or if you hide like Jacob. It doesn’t matter what you’ve done or what you will do. It's already done. You’ve got to move past the mistakes, and accept God's calling.
Now some things God has given us as a dream/vision in our hearts. He has given even the most unlikely of us a dream already! And He intends to bring His plans to pass.
You have been given the keys, What are you going to do?
