God is our Father! What
mighty words and what a mighty truth! But do we understand it? Have we really
felt it in our hearts? Is it possible for us to live in our daily life with the
assurance that God loves us for who we are here and now? Not for the person we
want to be or become…
I don’t always like myself – I shall be the first to admit that. I don’t always
like the way I react to people and circumstances in my life, I don’t always
like to see how I often fail in thoughts, words and deeds… I would rather be
a ‘better me’. How then is it possible for God to love me for the person I
But God is in this both mighty and merciful enough to meet me – exactly because
He is my Father! He is the best daddy there is!! His love towards me never ends
despite my one or ten mistakes. Just as it is with my love towards my boys. It
doesn’t end despite their anger, grumpiness, or the one hitting the other, or
when they do not consider mommy their best friend anymore! I love them anyway –
because their mine! They are my two precious boys, my blessings, my children! I
love them due to the fact that they exists!
God is the best daddy there is and He wants a father/child relationship with
each and one of us. He wishes to share His heart and love with us. He’s longing
for fellowship with us. When I approach Him it’s always He that has been
waiting for me! I don’t always feel His presence in a concrete way, but I know
He is present. He is there for me!
He is longing to share His heart with me! He loves to shower me with His love
and care, with new insight and understanding, with new power and blessing, with
guidance and admonition, with healing and restoration and much much more.
His plans for me are good! He gives hope for a better future! He’s carrying me in
times of need! He helps me on my feet again when I’ve fallen and He’s faithful
and never fails me! I can fail Him, but He never fails me!
We all have experiences which isn’t all good. Some have had mostly good and
positive experiences, but others not. Some have almost only negative
experiences. But for us all the same truth applies – God is God, He’s not human
like our earthly fathers – and mothers.
They have trodden in a wrong way and done things to us that we feel as painful
and sore, degrading and shameful, they may have trodden on our self-respect,
self-esteem and self-confidence…. but they are human.
God is God. And He is the best daddy there is. He will never do anything
towards you witch (?) isn’t for the better. He will always love you. He will
always be there for you. He always wants to share His love with you. He is
longing to help you in your everyday life, with your thoughts and feelings,
heal your wounds and He is longing to be your Father, your daddy!
Listen to what He is saying:
"And I will be a Father to you, and you shall be My sons and
daughters,…" (2 Cor 6:18)
"… therefore with loving-kindness have I drawn you and continued My
faithfulness to you."(Jer 31:3b)
"For I know the thoughts and plans that I have for you, says the Lord,
thoughts and plans for welfare and peace and not for evil, to give you hope in
your final outcome."(Jer 29:11)
"Fear not, for I am with you; do not look around you in terror and be
dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen and harden you to difficulties,
yes, I will help you: yes, I will hold you up and retain you with My
(victorious) right hand of rightness and justice.(Isaiah 41:10)
"For I will restore health to you, and I will heal your wounds, says the
"The Lord your God is in the midst of you, a Mighty One, a Saviour (Who
saves)! He will rejoice over you with joy; He will rest(in silent staisfaction)
and in His love He will be silent and make no mention (of past sins, or even
recall them); He will exult over you with singing.(Zeph 3:17)
