OUR HEAVENLY FATHER
It is an awesome blessing that, we know beyond a shadow of a doubt that our Heavenly Father cares for us. Many people in our society are without earthly fathers; me included. However, I am grateful that my Heavenly Father has blessed me. He has provided and I am always under His watchful care. I am just one of his children. His love for us is unconditional. There are no favorites in His family. When I was growing up, I heard the term “black sheep” in the family. I did not quite understand what it meant, but I was sure that it was not a compliment. In God’s family, there are no black sheep. Whatever we need, just ask Him for He is able to supply every need according to His riches in glory. Matthew 7:11 speaks of the awesome love of our Father:
“So if you sinful people know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give good gifts to those who ask Him.”
We read words of confidence indicating that the Father gives good gifts to those who ask Him. Matthew writes in verse seven that we need to only ask, and seek and we should find, knock and the door will open. In this 11th verse, we have a deeper description of God’s amazing love. His goodness and kindness is extended to others. Following this verse Jesus speaks of the Golden Rule. Read this entire chapter, when you get a chance. Take a moment to give our Heavenly Father thanks for His great love for us. The Father’s wisdom is deep and wide. The Father’s love is expansive. The Father stands, ready to forgive and receive Him as His own. To know Him is to love Him.
