Anyone who is close to me or knows me well, know that this season (past 2 years) have been a redefining season of my life in the area of who God is and how he is pruning or cultivating me. LOTS of ups and downs, but through it all – I’m constantly reminded of who I see God as the most in my life as of late. I see, feel and know him as FATHER. His nature as a father is so critical to me right now. It’s overwhelming and at times, I just sit and think of how good he is. He is a good father. I listen to Housefires’ song “Good Good Father” so much, simply to hear the words – “You Are Perfect in All of Your Ways.”
Here’s some of the encouragement I can deposit into you.
// 14 For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, 15 from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, 16 that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being, 17 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth (width) and length and height and depth, 19 and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. 20 Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, 21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen. – Ephesians 3:14-21 \\
WE have a father, who is God that is intricately in love with us that he expresses His love in 4 different and precise dimensions. He is so for us that he wants to exceed our expectations and wildest dreams. He loves us so much that He eagerly wants us to be filled with ALL of him. This is OUR FATHER… this is OUR GOD!
His only requirement is that YOU & I stay in Him and He in us. I urge you beloved, DON’T neglect his wooing and nudges for more. Stay near to Him. Lean on his wisdom and love. Receive his fullness that he joyfully wants to give to us.
