Abba Father

I was reminded today of how personal our God is. He is our Daddy, our Heavenly Daddy. He is always accessible and He never turns His back on the child that seeks Him and needs Him. When we ask for bread He will not give us a stone. He may ask us to go through the fire but He will not let it destroy us. He may take us throught the flood but it will not overwhelm or drown us. How good our God is! How gracious and kind. He sends the sun to warm us and when the rain comes He is there with us. He loves us without conditions and only asks that we give our lives to Him. When I think of how we mess it up on our own it seems like such a small thing. When life does not go according to plan, which is most of the time, He uses that time to refocus our attention on Him. He knows that when we are doubleminded we are unstable in all of our ways. How He loves us, ever loves us. How grateful I am for His care. He gives at least one smile to us each day if we will but take it. He sends a friend to pray and encourage just when we need it most. He calms our anxious hearts and hears us when we cry. He saves each of our tears and treasures every heartfelt prayer. What a Mighty God we serve and what a Daddy He is to His children.
