Nothing is too big, or too small… for God

The greatest in the Kingdom of heaven is the one who humbles himself and becomes like this child. -Matthew 18:4

Let the children come to me, don’t stop them. For the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to such as these. – Matthew 18:14

Be imitators of God as dearly loved children and live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave HIMSELF UP for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God. – Ephesians 5:1-2

Children are a gift from the LORD; they are a reward from him. – Psalm 127:3-5

Even children are known by the way they act, whether their conduct is pure, and whether it is right.” -Proverbs 20:11

I tell you the truth, anyone who doesn’t receive the Kingdom of God like a child will never enter it.” -Mark 10:15

You must grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. All glory to him, both now and forever! Amen. -2 Peter 3:18

Like newborn babies, crave pure spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow up in your salvation, now that you have tasted that the Lord is good. – I Peter 2:2-3

When I was a child, I spoke and thought and reasoned as a child. But when I grew up, I put away childish things. – I Corinthians 13:11

The prayers/letters of these children are pure and acceptable to God, because they are from babes.  From you, He demands more… because you know better. To whom much is given, much is expected.

Want an example? Consider Mary (Luke 1:34), upon hearing from the Spirit that she would conceive and bear a child, she asked “how could this be”? Recognizing her spiritual maturity, the Spirit lovingly explained to her how it would happen without condemnation or penal consequence.

On the other hand, consider her husband, Zechariah (Luke 1:18), upon hearing from the Spirit that he would a father the same child, he asked, “How can this happen?” And, recognizing his spiritual maturity, his question bore witness of his disbelief; the Spirit struck him mute for 9-months!  He knew better than to have questioned God, he had studied and been taught the scriptures all his life, he himself was a priest, he had been given much and for that, much was expected.

Nothing is too big, nor is anything too small for God… so ask Him. But, be sure you pray His will be done and not your own. After all, prayer is really nothing more than you conceding to His will… He is not your cosmic bellhop or a little Lord Jesus asleep on the hay.
