Nothing Allows Something to Happen

“People say nothing is impossible, but I do nothing every day” – Winnie-the-Pooh.
Ever wonder why God calls us children of God rather than adults when we come to faith in Jesus? I recently watched a movie that drove this point home. When we become adults, we take on adult responsibilities. This is the natural order of things.
Yet, in the midst of taking care of these responsibilities, we often are robbed of our joy and peace. Why? We fail to do what Jesus did – communicate with our Father to see how and when He wants those responsibilities done.
No. We’re adults. We can handle this. We don’t need help. However, isn’t this relying on our own strength and ability? And doesn’t our joy and peace drain away the longer we do?
Chambers once said, “Faith never knows where it is being led, but it loves and trusts the One Who is leading. It is a life of faith, not intellect and strength, but a life of knowing Who makes us ‘go.’”
God is the only one who can make something out nothing (Gen. 1:1). If you ever doubt this truth, simply look up at the sky on a starry night some time.
Doing nothing but what, when and how He wants those adult responsibilities done allows us to keep our childlike joy and peace while growing in our love for and faith in our Father.
So stay a child. Talk with your Dad!
