Today I want to share THIS from Jerry Savelle!
GOD'S HEART IS A FATHER'S HEART
If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him (Matthew 7:11 NKJV).
Knowing God as your loving heavenly Father is essential if you want to enjoy your walk with Him and fulfill all the wonderful plans He has for your life.
Your Father is for you: He is behind you every step of the way.
Your Father is always motivated by His love for you. When it seems He is spoiling your fun, He is actually protecting you from something that will harm you.
Your Father wants you to succeed at all you set your hand to do. He will show you how to be successful; He will encourage you to keep going and to never quit.
Your Father will pick you up when you fail or fall. He will bind your wounds and set you on your feet again.
Your Father wants the absolute best for you in all you do. He is disappointed when you settle for less than what you could have.
Your Father delights to have you come and talk to Him. He loves to share His wisdom with you; He loves to counsel you and show you the way.
Regardless of how you may have once viewed God, the Word says He is the perfect Father. Will you let Him be a Father to you?
Confession: Father, I receive You as my loving heavenly Abba (Daddy), and I take my place as Your precious child. I trust in the truth that everything You do for me is motivated by love. I believe You are good, and everything you give me is good.
AMEN! Understanding the Father's great love for us is key to being able to comprehend all that He has DONE for us and PROVIDED for us! When we meditate on this great goodness and love, we will begin to EXPECT His favor and blessing, just because He's FATHER! AMEN! Here is Hillsong with "Father":
Shalom in Him!
