Where is Our FAITH?

Posted on May 11, 2020 at 1:40 PM

Last night our house got turned upside down!  As we got ready for bed and decided to leave the living room we went to feed the kids new fish before we turned in for the night.  When we took the top off of the aquarium and started crumbling food in the tank.  I noticed that we had a dead fish, the one the kids had name "Fishy McFishy Face (don't ask me) and my house went in to complete turmoil a TRAGEDISTY as my two younger kids would call it, unstoppable crying and nose blowing.

As I tried to get my kids calmed down and took the fish and bagged it and placed him i the freezer so I could return him today.  My 4 year old Emily who kept saying, "I just can't stop crying cause I am just so sad."  Then flipped the switch on me when she said, "Daddy can't we just put him back in the aquarium and pray over him and Jesus will raise him from the dead."  MIND BLOWN, the question just kept running through my mind.  I even caught Emily trying to get the fish out of the freezer to put him back in.  She just kept telling me if we put him back in and pray God will make him live again.  

That is where I got convicted as I did my quite time and devotion with God, and was asked where is my Faith?  I kept trying to rationalize with my four and kind hearted 10 year old that it would be ok, that with everything going on I would just go get them a new one.  But why did I have to hinder her faith?  Mark 10:14-15, "But when Jesus say it, he was much displeased, and he said unto them, Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not:  for of such is they kingdom of God.  Verily I say unto you, whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein."  As an adult I had just hinder a child's faith.  I was asked what would it have hurt to place the fish back in the aquarium and let them pray over it.  I have gotten so used to fish dying in aquariums growling up that I had hardened my heart to it.  My 4 year old hasn't, Mattthew 17:20 says, "And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief:  for verily I say unto you, if you have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and is shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you."

My lesson from God,  When I child ask to pray, PRAY!  Cause they have a faith that is untainted and a faith that is unshakeable.

Children of God where is our FAITH?  I think when we go through trials, struggles and hard times, we need to be like Emily and say if we just pray over him God will hear us and bring him back to life.  So with that being said children show your faith and pray even over the SMALL STUFF and BELIEVE that God will do it.
