Luke 10:21 (KJV) 21 In that hour Jesus rejoiced in spirit, and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes: even so, Father; for so it seemed good in thy sight.
There’s a huge blessing in being childlike than esteeming ourselves as wise and prudent.
Humility—child-likeness—it is God’s revealed preferred way to greatness; being Christlike also opens up windows of wonderful revelations, understanding, supernatural experiences, and insights that are hidden from the proud.
We trust the Lord; we trust Him in everything, and that includes divine paradoxical principles. His ways are always proven true and right. So, instead of tirelessly competing in this dog-eat-dog world, jockeying for ever higher position and increasingly greater knowledge, we chose the path laid out for us by our Lord. We live humbly, continually growing in child-likeness. He takes care of exalting us and filling our lives with wonders.
