Sitting down and reflecting on the Father's Love. Most parents, if not all, spent so much on gifts this past few days to bring smiles on their kids faces, on Christmas Day. I mean it's a great thing to see how parents go all out for their kids, even though some gifts were bought on credit (credit card purchases), but they were bought! Why would any parent do that? I believe it's Because you love your kids so much, and want them to know you will climb the highest mountain just to bring them their heart desires.
Yet we forget our Heavenly Father is just that crazy about His children. He would go all out for us to give us THE BEST GIFTS our heart desires if we ask Him. So Never allow anyone tell you God loves you any less. He created you, and loves you enough to have you share His own Breath! Yes! He is so into you, that He counts every strand of your hair! (And some of us are so hairy....LOL). I mean who does that? Even your own parents, as dear as you are to them, will never have that time to count each strand of your hair, and be sane after that! That's too much work that it may take an eternity to do; but God does?
"If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?" (Matthew 7:12)
Never forget you are first God's children, before you came to meet your earthly parents. God loves you so much He sent His only son to be killed just for you to know He is soooo in love with you. That alone is the ULTIMATE GIFT! Even your early parents cannot kill for you, but God did!
"Behold what manner of great love the Father has lavished on us, that we may be called the children of God!" (1 John3:1A)
It is a great privilege to be Gods child/children. He is best at everything He does. His love for us surpasses any love any parent may have for his child or children. Always run to God and never from Him.
God gives me gifts whenever I ask. Sometime, my parent tells me "no" when they don't have it, but God says "yes" when He knows it's a good gift that wouldn't hurt you, because He needs no OTHER SOURCE TO PULL FROM. HE is self-sufficient, self-reliant, and a self-sustained God. He has EVERYTHING you could ever need to survive the earth! He created the earth, and has it on the palm of His hands. Isn't that even a crazy thought?
We buy a manmade globe (map), and we put it in our offices, yet it is bigger than our palms put together. Can you then imagine how big this earth is, and how God has it in His hand. That blows my mind each time. He is a BIG God, that is why His ways are always bigger than our ways, and His thoughts, higher than ours.
For you to enjoy all these great gifts, and to have a great relationship with the Father, then you must be saved. "If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved." (Romans 10:9). Salvation is the gateway to enjoying the best gifts ever from God.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, I believe you are Lord, I believe God raised you from the dead; come into my life and be the Lord of my life; forgive my sins and make me new again. Yes, it is that simple! Thank you Jesus.
