Child Like Faith

13 Then they brought little children to Him, that He might touch them; but the disciples rebuked those who brought them. 14 But when Jesus saw it, He was greatly displeased and said to them, “Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of God. 15 Assuredly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will by no means enter it.” 16 And He took them up in His arms, laid His hands on them, and blessed them.

My four-year-old has been on this kick about having super powers.  Everything we tell her that she can't do she says she can because she has super powers.  She said she's not afraid of bugs because she has super powers that protect her or help her.  She said that she can heal her family and she can do anything!  This was such a revelation for me because  she truly believed in her super powers and had faith in what they can do.  We are all born with that faith and somewhere along the way we are taught to be logical and analytical about things and we start to over think and under believe.  God tells us plain as say that we should have child like faith....simple faith!  God has given us dominion over all things.  Not a few things, all things!  We lose out on so much because we over analyze it and tend to feel silly about praying over and/or speaking to certain things.
20 So Jesus said to them, “Because of your unbelief;[d] for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you. 21 However, this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting.”[e]
Have faith and believe that you have already received everything that you pray for.  Know that God's promises are solid and you already have what the word says you can have.  Now it's time to possess your possessions and what God has promised you through prayer and un shakeable faith.  We have "super (natural) powers" and can do all things through Christ (Phil.4:13) utilize your inheritance and move mountains!
