MATTHEW 7:9_bread, will he give him a stone?
God is the father portion of the Trinity. He wants to be yours. Because God is a loving and just Father, He gives freedom to accept or reject Him. To accept God is to accept His sovereignty in your life.
An earthly father may fail you, and for that matter you may fail your earthly father. Your Heavenly Father will never fail you. Jesus has already made it clear that the Heavenly Father meets needs of food and clothes – even if you have to go through a time when they are limited.
Jesus teaches the kind of heart that He wants in an earthly father—one who loves his children and meets their needs.
God wants children to feel free to ask their fathers to meet their needs. He wants fathers to love and trust His heart, and believe He will help them meet the needs of their family. Fathers who love God and have a desire to guide their families in His steps, will not lack God’s support. Again, that does not mean you get everything you want. It means something far greater.
John 14:23 (KJV), “Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.”
The very God of Heaven and His Holy Son are a daily part of the lives of their children.
God is a true father!
True God, Help me grow into a Godly person who keeps Your Words. In the powerful name of Jesus, Amen.
Christ wants to consume me with His love—I want it!
