“At that time Jesus said, ‘I praise You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that You have hidden these things from the wise and intelligent and have revealed them to infants’” (Matthew 11:25).

At a time when things were not going well; when he was misunderstood by even John the Baptist; when people were unresponsive; when he could have found a reason to whine, Jesus chose, instead, a reason to give thanks. While the world is a source of anguish, it is the sovereign reign of the Heavenly Father that is forever our encouragement and hope. Faith in man will always give you a reason to whine, while faith in the Heavenly Father will always give you a reason to praise.
