What The Father Says - Part 1
“The mature children of God are those who are moved by the impulses of the Holy Spirit. 15 And you did not receive the “spirit of religious duty,” leading you back into the fear of never being good enough. But you have received the “Spirit of full acceptance,” enfolding you into the family of God. And you will never feel orphaned, for as he rises up within us, our spirits join him in saying the words of tender affection, “Beloved Father!” Romans 8:14-15 TPT
The Father Says, “You are my Beloved Child.”
The Father says, “Before you were ever a thought, I knew every detail of your design. From the number of hairs on your head to the number of days in your life, I have made you for My pleasure and delight. More numerous than the sands on the shore, are My thoughts of love towards you. You are My beloved child, and I'm proud to call you Mine.”
You are a child of God! Many people have grown up in families with fathers that weren't active, others have grown up with phenomenal fathers, or maybe fathers that weren't present at all. This piece of our story often becomes the lens through which we see our heavenly Father.
How do you envision your Abba Father?
Allison Fowler says, “The heart is the lens through which we see God. If we refuse to forgive, our bitterness and resentment become the dirt that clouds our ability to see Him clearly.” So invite the Lord to sweep your heart of false beliefs of His character that may have formed from your upbringing or challenges you may have faced. Let the reality of His character settle deep within you: God’s character is the embodiment of perfection, kindness, and love; it is without blemish, flaw, or stain.
Take a few moments, close your eyes, and reflect on God's stunning nature. Healing oil from heaven is flooding into your heart right now, removing cloudiness, and opening the eyes of your heart. Listen to your Father’s voice as He whispers truth into your spirit, and receive His lavish love that is swelling in His heart for you. The Father says, “You are My beloved child.”
“I will be a true Father to you, and you will be My beloved sons and daughters, says the Lord Yahweh Almighty.” 2 Corinthians 6:18 TPT
