We missed last week speaking with you so we want to get caught up. How are you doing? Pray things are going well for you and that you are walking in God’s favor daily.
What has been on my heart for a while is drawing closer to God. I believe it is on God’s heart also! If we only knew how much God desires to have an intimate relationship with us it would change our whole perspective of Him.
God does not want you to be afraid of Him, the exact opposite is true. He want you to come and meet with Him. Even if you have sinned and missed the mark (news flash… all of us have) your place should be to turn to the Father God. His arms are open wide with forgiveness.
Many have been taught growing up about a religious Father God. Which paints a picture of an old man sitting in a rocking chair with a big stick ready to hit someone on the head when they get out of line.
No that’s not the picture Jesus painted of the father during His earthly ministry, scripture states:
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16 (NKJV)
I could name a lot of terrible things in this world right now from a natural standpoint but this scripture says that God so loved everyone that He gave.
He did not give any cheap gift either, he gave something that was so precious and most dear to Him, His only Son. The evil in this world did not stop the power of His giving a precious gift!
This week and beyond do not let the wickedness of people stop the power of your giving!
Because of God Almighty making that choice to continue in the power of giving despite the evil in this world, you are alive and breathing today! He just asks you one thing, to believe fully in His Giving Gift. Not just for salvation but for everything else that you need in this life. It all comes through his Son Jesus, the Giving Gift. Jesus is the only avenue from which great blessing will come to your life!
Understanding that fact will bring great intimacy with Father God. When you respect and believe in His Giving Gift, Jesus, it will move the heart of God to be more intimate with you. Begin to pay attention more to Jesus this year than you ever have and watch your intimacy with Father God grow by leaps and bounds!!!
