God is a Great Father

What if I really believed that God is a great Father?  How would my life change?  How would that fact change my life?

I urge you to consider this…God is a GREAT Father.   Here are just a few of His great attributes:

  • He pursues a relationship with us and draws us in…John 3:16, 6:44
  • He is present to walk through life with us … Psalms 23, Psalms 139
  • He provides all of our needs …Matthew 6:25-34
  • He protects us and watches over our lives… Psalms 34
  • He perseveres even when we want to quit … 1 Corinthians 13:7, Philippians 1:6
  • He acts on our behalf and interacts with us in an intentional / purposeful way … Romans 8:28-30, Philippians 2:12,13
  • He is Able … Ephesians 3:20, Jeremiah 32:17

What if we daydreamed about being a child of God like we do about being born into a really wealthy, well-connected, powerful family?  What if we realized that we have been born again into the family of the ALL POWERFUL, SOVEREIGN, UNLIMITED GOD of the universe. Maybe we could have “what if” shift – let’s move from our “what ifs” that are fueled by worry/fear to “what ifs” that are full of possibilities and unlimited potential.  Let’s start living as if we believe that God is a great father who is at work in our lives.  Let’s give glory to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly more than we can ask or even imagine.  Let’s live like God’s kids!
