I’ve started reading the book “The Differaennce A Father Makes” by Ed Tandy McGlasson. And made me think of this song. I’m only a few pages into the book and even though is written to fathers I am finding some truth that everyone could use. It hard for me to understand how much God loves me. This book uses God as the standard for a father. Galatians 4
1 What I am saying is that as long as an heir is underage, he is no different from a slave, although he owns the whole estate. 2 The heir is subject to guardians and trustees until the time set by his father. 3 So also, when we were underage, we were in slavery under the elemental spiritual forces[a] of the world. 4 But when the set time had fully come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under the law, 5 to redeem those under the law, that we might receive adoption to sonship.[b] 6 Because you are his sons, God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, the Spirit who calls out, “Abba,[c] Father.” 7 So you are no longer a slave, but God’s child; and since you are his child, God has made you also an heir.
God is our father, He longs for us. The word “Abba, Father” is like saying Daddy God. God is not a distant father, his not in constant disapointment of us, judging our every move. When we mess up God is not condeming you, he is saying “I know you can do better, I am here for you, I will forgive you, I will help you, all you have to do is ask. When we ask for God’s forgiveness, it is goned, it is obliterated He remembers it no more. And we are no longer bound by it’s power. All God want’s is to be with us, but our sin keeps us from him. That is why Jesus came, that is why He allowed Himself to be tortured to death. So, that he could take the punishment for us, so that we could stand before God righteous. He did it to claim us as His grand prize. When I started writing this it was to mearly post my current prayer. And that is that God will help me to not only know that He loves me but to KNOW that He loves me. To know something in your head is one thing like 2+2=4, but to know it to the very core of my being is what I want and need. And I think that how I approach things and my level of confidence will drastically change when I get it.
Please listen to I’m here waiting with all this in mind and then listen to “How He Loves us” And I pray that all of you will know the love that God has for You
