Day 8 In Him we find...

Whether you have an earthly father in your life or not, you have an amazing, heavenly father. I love how Jesus teaches us to pray in Matthew 6:9 saying, "Our father who art in heaven..." Not only is He the creator of the universe, but He is our Father! (We have one rockin Dad!) God wants us to have a relationship with Him. He wants us to climb up in His lap. He wants to protect us. John 1:12 says, "Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God." What's even better is that He chose you! Let that sink in for a minute. It's not like he's saying, "Ugh, that's my kid?!" No, He's the Dad that carries a picture of you everywhere and shows everyone saying, "That's my child!" with a proud smile. He knit you in your mother's womb. He knows everything about you and accepts you!

Psalm 139:13- "For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb."
Romans 8:15- "The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship. And by him we cry, “Abba, Father.”
2 Corinthians 6:18- "And,“I will be a Father to you, and you will be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.”
In Him we find our Heavenly Father.

  1. How beautiful! I did not have a nice earthly father and he died young at that, as did my mother. I was so happy and so blessed to know that I did have a real Father, a Father who would love and protect and provide for me forever. I have a Father who loves me in spite of myself. I have a Father who see me as someone worth dying for.

  2. I'm sorry to hear that, but you are so right-He is the best Father ever! Thanks for stopping by! Be blessed :)


I'm so glad you stopped by! I can't wait to hear your thoughts. Be blessed :)
