Comfort Faith God's Nature Love


As a little child, I need to cry out to the Lord in my time of need! When is that? Oh, yeah, all the time!


Little ones are so smart, I just love the little grandchildren. The older ones lose some of the inborn wisdom of the babies. Babies know that without mom they are in big trouble, they can do nothing except to cry. Unlike normal parents who are bothered by the baby’s cry, the Lord loves to hear us turn to him in our distress and cry for relief, cry with passion.

  • Exodus 3:7: He hears my cry he knows my sorrows I am fellow sufferer with Jesus
  • I Samuel 7:8 He loves me to cry out to him for the needs of others.
  • Psalm 34:15 His eye watches me and his ear is tuned to my cry as a mother to her baby.
  • Psalm 40:1 Be patient and persistent in my crying, he will hear.
  • Psalm 55:17 Evening, morning, and noon pause and take my needs to him and cry out.
  • Psalm 61:2 Cry out to be led. Cry: Thanks! Help! Show me lead me!
  • Psalm 86:2 Keep it up daily.
  • Psalm 142:6 Cry when the stress is greater than I can handle. (Hint: this should be–always for everything.)
  • Job 36:13 The wicked do not cry when they should, not even when God brings loving consequences. (See the discussion on MERCY under bible definitions.)
  • Isaiah 58:1 Cry out against sin in the world.
  • Romans 8:15 Cry out, Oh, Abba! Come boldly to the hearer of his children’s prayers

Go ahead, be a baby!

The other thing that they can do is delight in the people whom God has placed in their life. They don’t care about your appearance, or income, or much of anything, other than the fact that they know you and you are theirs and they are yours, so they light up when they see you and love to reconnect with you.

Babies hunger for more food and don’t try to get by without eating. At the same time, they are content, not bored with their life.

Babies watch, and learn, and practice, and are not bothered if their parent-copying is not done perfectly.

Babies sense that they are loved just because they are in the family not because of what they do or do not do.

Dear Lord, help me to quit being so grown up. Help me come to you as a child, and let me delight that, in fact, I am your beloved, little child. For of such is the kingdom of heaven (Matthew 18:4).
