Abba, Father

 

In our previous post, we discussed the death and resurrection of Jesus. God loves us so much, that He sent His only son, Jesus, to die on the cross for our sins. God’s love for us can not be measured. It is truly a love that comes only from a Heavenly Father.

God knows everything about us, even the number of hairs on our head. (Matthew 10:30). He created our innermost being, and knit us together in our mother’s womb. (Psalms 139:13). Before a word is on our tongue, He knows it completely. (Psalms 139: 4).

God is always with us. “Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast.” (Psalms 139:7-10).

God knows what we need before we ask him. (Matthew 6:8). This doesn’t mean he will answer our prayers immediately. He will answer in His own way and in His own time.  He knows what is best for us. Jeremiah 29:11 tell us “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

God provides for those who believe. “Therefore, I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink, or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sew or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?” (Matthew 6:25-26).

God will never leave us or forsake us. “The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you, he will never leave you or forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”(Deuteronomy 31:8).

I just can’t imagine trying to live in this world without God loving me and  guiding my way. If left to myself, I hate to think of the mess I would make! God’s love is there when things are going great. God’s love is there to comfort me when things are going wrong. He never promised the road would always be easy; however, he did promise that he would walk with us. God’s love is there for all of us, if we pray, ask for it, and accept it.

“For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creations, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 8:38-39).
