“…how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?” Matthew 7:9-11
Beloved, God is not just Your God in heaven, but He is Your Father. When you have this understanding of God as Your Father, it changes everything. You see in the natural, a father takes care of his child, he protects the child, he provides for the child, he nurtures the child, and there is no extent he won’t go to for that child. Now if an earthly father is willing to do all of this and much more, how much more your heavenly father.
Unfortunately, due to the limited knowledge, people were taught that God was a hard taskmaster, waiting to drop the hammer as soon as there was an error. And this is the same picture of God that some people have today. Rather than seeing God as a loving Father, who loves you irrespective of your mistakes, you see Him as hard and unconcerned. This perspective of God caused men to run away from God, rather than run towards Him.
Child of God, God loves you so deeply. He cares for you. He wants you to cast every care, and every burden on Him, He wants you to come to Him with that worry, that difficulty, that challenge, He wants to solve your problems. He is your Abba Father, Daddy Daddy. He will not withhold good from you. The scripture tells us that “All Good and perfect gift comes from above, the Father of light” He is favorably disposed to do you good, and He will do you good.
Romans 8:15 says that we have not received a spirit that makes us fearful slaves, but we received God’s Spirit and now we can call Him Abba Father. Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ that God is your Daddy, and so you can never be stranded. Picture yourself running into His arms when you are stressed up and able to share every single thought with Him. Look into His eyes and see His deep love for you.
