Key to Life

The key to life is a child-like faith in our heavenly Father. We need to trust that He knows what is best for us just as the trusting little child does his earthly father. That little child may not understand or agree with his father, but his love and faith in his father puts him at ease with the day’s stress and pain. The child knows that whatever happens, his father will hold him up, protect him, and do everything in his power to do what is best for him. We too need this faith in our heavenly Father. When we have it, we have discovered the key or meaning to life (actually God has revealed it to us). Nothing that comes will be able to move us from the deeply known trust that God has what is best for us. Distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword, or unemployment, or friendlessness, or homelessness – nothing will be able to separate us from the love of God through our Lord Jesus Christ and this knowledge will ground us day to day enabling us to have a peace that passes all understanding. Lord, give us this today and never let us forget.
