Do You Have Childlike Faith?

Childlike faith is priceless! NeedEncouragement.comPlease contact us if you have questions or comments or want encouragement.

Having a childlike faith makes seeing God working in my life easier. Can you remember how it felt to have childlike faith every day while growing up? Sometimes as an adult, we overthink and over-intellectualize things. Childlike faith is purer and more innocent.


I like to consider my faith in God as something simple enough that a child could understand rather than having faith based on a large volume of memorized things. Childlike faith knows that God loves me, died for me on the cross, rose from the dead, and gave the Holy Spirit to those who accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior. There is more to know, but childlike faith keeps things simple and pure. Do you have faith like a child, or are you struggling some other way with your faith? Remember that even though we may be adults, we still can learn from children. ~ Bill Greguska


Matthew 18:3  And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.



What Does Childlike Faith Look Like?

This Prayer Below Are Not Magic Word.

Your Salvation Is Between You And The Lord!

“Lord Jesus, I believe you are the Son of God. Thank you for dying on the cross for all my sins. Please forgive my sins and give me the gift of eternal life. I ask you to be my Lord and Savior in my life and heart. I want to follow you and serve you always.”
An important disclaimer: Just because you said you made a decision or said, “I accept Jesus as my Lord and Savior,” does not mean life will be free from all problems. Our problems can make us bitter or better, depending on how we look at them.
Psalm 46:1  God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.

Romans 8:1-5 ESV 

There is, therefore, now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death. For God has done what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do. By sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin, he condemned sin in the flesh in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit.

Romans 1:16 ESV 

For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.
