I loved reading Hannah Whitall Smith’s words this morning about “the whole secret.” She writes, “Those, therefore, who know Him as their Father, know the whole secret. They are their Father’s heirs and may now enter into possession of all that is necessary for their present needs. They will therefore be very simple in their prayers. ‘Lord,’ they will say, ‘I am your child, and I need such and such things.’ ‘My child,’ He will answer, ‘all things are yours in Christ; come and take just what you need’.”
The older I grow, the simpler faith becomes. Rather than growing in complexity or theological profundity, I find I’m more childlike.
What do I need? I come and take just what I need from a loving Father.
