Friday's Dose - 17th April 2015

Our Heavenly Father

Today's Scripture

“I will be a Father to you, and you will be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty” - (2 Corinthians 6:18).

Thoughts for Today

Many of us have memories of our fathers. Some memories may be good, but others may be sad or painful. Whatever our feelings are toward our earthly fathers, there is no comparison to our heavenly Father. He is greater than any earthly father could possibly be. He loves us with an unconditional love and never ceases to demonstrate His mercy and grace toward us. He spends time with us and has promised never to leave us.

That is why Jesus taught His disciples to pray by saying, “Our Father.” The phrase “Our Father” reduces all of the complications of life to a very simple relationship. Through faith in the shed blood of Christ, we have been redeemed from sin and have been adopted into God’s family. As a child of God, have you exercised your right to say “Our Father”?

When we come to our heavenly Father in prayer, He removes our fear. He gives us hope and confidence. He banishes our uncertainty. The Apostle Paul said, “You did not receive a spirit that makes you a slave again to fear, but you received the Spirit of sonship. And by him we cry, ‘Abba, Father’” - (Romans 8:15).

Your heavenly Father is interested in every area of your life. In Him you have protection, safety, security, serenity, peace, and salvation. Friends may disappoint you and family may let you down, but your heavenly Father will never leave you nor forsake you (Hebrews 13:5). He is eager to hear your prayers to Him.

Therefore, call upon Him. Place your trust in Him. Share your hopes, problems, dreams, and concerns with the One who knows you better than you know yourself. As your Father, He will give you joy for today and hope for tomorrow.

Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father, Thank you for being my Father. I am blessed to be loved by You. Thank you for your salvation, peace and protection. I pray I will bless you as your child. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen.". 

Have a Blessed Friday and God Bless you.
