I think what gets me the most about God, what really makes my heart and mind immediately align with how beautifully intentional He is in everything around us, is this right here⬇️
The love of children and the Love of GOOD Daddy’s.
They run EVERYDAY to wave him off to work. The littlest stands on the vent, the middle guides, and the oldest watches closely as a Father is diligent in daily provision for his family.
They love Daddy. Plain and simple. He’s theirs and his pedestal in their eyes, is a lofty one. Error on his part is almost impossible in their book, and to them he is and has all that a good Daddy should have to be safe, loving and trustworthy! To them, He is theirs and He is for them and they wake up every day knowing it.
BUT To Him, they fill His world. He waits for their hello in the morning, their phone call at lunch, and their kisses at night.
They don’t always do the right thing and often neglect to remember the things that they should, but he never holds it against them. He loves them and all their frazzled fragility!
They’re just little hearted humans with a great big world around them and he knows that their minds could never understand all that HIS does-
so He shows them grace everyday. He loves them.
He loves them. They can’t earn His love. They can’t work for it, pay for it or barter for it. They’re children. They have no huge savings to offer or assets accrued. Just simple love.
Love in its purest form.
And that is enough.
Much more so.
The value of their hearts, their pure love and their affection towards their Daddy is priceless- And it satisfies Him…
And Yep. It’s just like that.
“He called a little child to him, and placed the child among them. And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.”
Friends, He is not a tyrannical God holding a scepter over our heads waiting for us to do something wrong so He can strike us with lightning!
He is not a distant and unapproachable God that wants nothing to do in mingling with us small insignificant little creatures.
AND He is not a God that works on merit- only interacting with those who ‘do’ right, ‘earn’ favor and ‘work’ hard for Him…🤦🏻♀️
He gave His own Son so that we could ALL be His children. He promises that He will see us AS CHILDREN and we can come to Him AS CHILDREN! From there we can grow in health and wholeness as we truly believe that He is real, safe, trustworthy, loving, faithful and FOR US!
It’s a beautifully pure and Paternal relationship of the most holy and satisfying kind!
Oh that we can know and live this!
Love you guys!
