25 At that time Jesus said, “I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children. 26 Yes, Father, for this is what you were pleased to do. Matthew 11:25-26
God was pleased to reveal the things of Heaven to little children, people who are dependent and helpless. The wise and learned can reason their way out of heaven. As an older generation might say, “They’re too smart for their own good.” They are their own salvation.
But the “little children” have to have God lift the veil of truth to see wonders never before seen and to experience God Himself.
Brothers and Sisters, rejoice in the truth of the simple Gospel message. He’s hidden it in plain sight but the highly educated won’t bother looking for it because they’ve found their own enlightenment, that is, until crisis comes. Then who do they turn to for help, for counsel, for wisdom?
Though we live in troubling times, we rest in the knowledge that one day God will call us to Himself. It could be today or it could be 50 years from now. Then the whys of this life will be answered as only He can answer them. We don’t know why terrible things continue to happen but we know that He is not unaware of them.
Lift up your heads for your redemption is nigh!
