A BABY IS SUCH AN ILLUSTRATION OF FAITH!

How do we receive the spiritual nourishment we need from the Lord? It’s so simple: we just have to have the faith of a little baby!

When a baby is crying to be fed, he knows his mother wouldn’t think of refusing him! God put it in that baby to know that if he calls, she will answer. He expects the answer and he gets it!–And if we, as children of our Heavenly Father, ask for milk, He’s surely not going to give us a serpent or something else! (Luk.11:10-13).

And what is it that brings the milk out of the mother’s breast? When the baby sucks, he creates a vacuum inside his mouth which pulls the milk out. Prayer is creating a vacuum like that inside our hearts: “Lord, here is this empty space!–You fill it!”

When the baby is very tiny, his mother has to bring the nourishment to him and show him where it is. But as he gets older, he automatically knows where to find the milk and he can reach out for it himself.–And likewise, the more we practice receiving nourishment from God, the better we know where to find it! And as long as we keep sucking, we’ll get more because God has unlimited capacity to give!

David 308

IT’S WONDERFUL TO HEAR STRAIGHT FROM THE LORD YOURSELF.

God expects His children, those who know Him personally and know His Will and His Word, to touch Him personally, directly, and make a direct contact with Him, not through somebody else’s faith or prayers. And that’s why the most important thing that any Christian can learn–and each new Christian has to learn it himself–is how to follow God and hear from Him fresh every day!

You can hear from God every day, and you should be hearing from Him every day. It doesn’t have to be out loud, it doesn’t have to be with an audible voice. It can just be in that small voice that you feel inside of you. Sometimes it’s not even words, just an impression that you have. God doesn’t have to communicate in words, He can just give you a feeling or a picture or an idea. If you really believe and ask the Lord, and you want to hear or see, you won’t be disappointed! And that which you see or hear with the eyes or ears of your spirit, that’s the Lord!–It will be such a comfort to you!

If you really want to hear Him, He’ll talk to you. You just have to have faith. Jesus speaks anytime, anywhere, if you believe!–Anytime you believe!
