No matter how many years keep rolling by, I will always want the love from my Dad. I’ll want the affirmation, the hugs and kisses, the gentle correction and the superhero problem fixing my Dad can do. I love my dad to bits. He is one of the best gifts GOD gave me. I always believed as a child that we would never die, we would live forever. We were inseparable. I remember him holding me while stood in a queue. I can still smell the leather of his coat as I snuggled in tight to his chest. I felt so safe and there was no place I’d rather be than right there with my Dad. I know if I ask my Dad he would do anything to help me, and he has.
The bible says “Don’t bargain with God. Be direct. Ask for what you need. This isn’t a cat-and-mouse, hide-and-seek game we’re in. If your child asks for bread, do you trick him with sawdust? If he asks for fish, do you scare him with a live snake on his plate? As bad as you are, you wouldn’t think of such a thing. You’re at least decent to your own children. So don’t you think the God who conceived you in love will be even better?
I honestly don’t think that I and possibly others have fully grasped the infinite and utterly sold out love GOD has for us. I don’t think it registers. I don’t mean to tar everyone with the same brush, as I know there are people who have walked and do walk in the revelation of the fullness of Christ’s love. I can definitely name a few. If I’m being honest, I’m not there yet, but I sooooo want to be. The more that is revealed to me about the Fathers character, His love and overwhelming compassion for His children, I’m bowled over and become eager and hungry to know more. It’s relentless love. It’s grace filled love. It’s almost incomprehensible …..and we can have it. I suppose the question is, how much do you want it? Jeremiah 29:13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. The New testament says ‘believe and be baptized’.
To access all that GOD has for you is to simply believe. !!!!!!! Just Believe !! Can it really be that simple. ? I would much rather have my mind, soul and spirit filled with everything good, than with negativity, pessimism and fear. What God offers is way more than we can handle at times. As believers we have been given the opportunity to change the very atmosphere we are in. To speak to things that are not, as though they are. His provision endless. Smith Wigglesworth says ‘Only Believe, everything is possible, Only believe.’ This is a man who brought his dead wife back to life, only for her to tell Smith that it’s her time to go and be with the Lord. !!! It raised my eyebrows. !!
What are you believing?… listening to? What’s filling your soul? If you are breathing today, you still have a calling, a mission, and purpose. Seek PAPA, He is waiting to receive you and fill you with all joy, hope and HIS amazing LOVE. Let Him hold you in HIS arms and tell you how much HE loves you. Let HIM kiss away the hurts and pain. Allow HIM to heal and restore. Most of all, believe and come to HIM.
Be blessed. If this spoke to you, please share to pass on the love.
