God IS My Loving Father and Yours Too!

God Is My Loving Father and Yours Too!

Scripture:  Ephesians 1:3-5

All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ. Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes. God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure. Ephesians 1:3-5 (New Living Translation)

Notes from my devotional…

(The Character of God – Part 4 of 7)

Love considers us to become intimate. So let’s get intimate!

This may be hard if your earthly father relationship was not a favorable one. Maybe, you can identify easy because you had a loving father relationship. But at any rate be quiet in your spirit and ask God to give you spiritual eyes to see and spiritual ears to hear.

Give God your total attention. We must trust God, that He loves us so much. Regardless how others had shown us love.

God does not love like man does. God’s love is unconditional.

You can’t see Him, yet He’s is not distant. He’s always present. You can’t touch Him, yet can feel a touch from Him. He loves you no matter what you may think, He is not angry with you. Nothing—absolutely nothing can separate you from the love of God (Romans 8:38).

God IS love (1 John 4:8) and there is no way that we can truly comprehend the breadth, the depth, or the lengths of that love that He has for us as His children. Whether you have a terrible relationship, a wonderful relationship, or no relationship at all with your earthly father, that relationship will never serve as an adequate or representative model of the love that God has for you. God’s love NEVER fails (Psalm 136, 1 Corinthians 3:8).

Prayer: “Father, I thank You for Your love. You knew me and loved me even before You made the world. Your Word says that You have taken the time to count every one of the hairs on my head! Thank You for loving me so much that You care about every detail of my life. Thank You for showing me my worth, to You and my worth IN You. Help me to better understand — both in my heart and in my spirit — the reality of how great Your love is for me.”
