“Jesus answered and said, I thank you, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you hid these things from the wise and prudent and revealed them unto babes (Matthew 11:25).”
Jesus, our Wayshower, began his prayer with thanksgiving, and then he acknowledged the Lord of heaven and earth as his Father. With God as his Father, Jesus knew that he was one with the Omniscience, the all-knowing Source of knowledge, wisdom, and understanding. When you believe in your heart and confess with your mouth, God as your Father, you open the door to receive insight beyond your human limitations.
In this prayer, Jesus was not comparing himself to others. He was coming into the realization that when he operated in his ego by being wise in his own eyes and prudent according to the world’s standards, that he was blind to God’s revelation for him. Jesus understood that when he humbled himself as a babe, he was able to operate in the mind of Christ and see with his spiritual eyes, hear with his spiritual ears, and feel with his spiritual heart.
Thanksgiving is the energy that draws your good to you. The universe is not rude. When you say, thanks, the universe always welcomes you to more. When you thank your Father for the health that you have received, God welcomes you to more health. When you appreciate the relationship that your Father has blessed you with, God welcomes you to more harmonious relationships and favorable interactions with others. When your heart is full of gratitude for the financial blessings that you have received, God welcomes you to more wealth.
Humble yourself and say this prayer as many times as you can throughout the day: “Father, I thank you because who I AM, you made me. What I have, you gave me. What I know you taught me. Where I AM you brought me. Thank you, God.” Write down your thoughts, feelings, and experiences as result of saying this prayer.
