The Fathers Love For Us

How deep the Fathers love for us... if we could just get it. Truly grasp it. What could ever stand in our way?

Nothing, No one, no enemy of any kind could ever touch us, move us or shake us from our belief, trust and faith in who God is; who we are in Him and all His Son bought and paid for us to have and enjoy to the fullest.

So what is it Jesus paid so dearly for, what was it that cost Him such a high price? It is the gift of God's love made available to us!

His love which knows no limit and makes all things possible, is a love so exquisite we sometimes have a hard time excepting it fully. Even as children of God. We get caught up in the lies the enemy tries to feed us. We get down on ourselves felling unworthy as if we need to hide. Then, before we know it, like the flip of a switch we've drifted away from the voice that calls us into truth. The very voice of the Lord that is our strong tower, our reminder of what is real and true, good and just.

You see, The Holy Spirit is given to us for so many reasons. One of which is to revel to us all we are to God and who He sees us to be. For God sees in us such beauty, and usefulness. We have such high value in His eyes and He constantly desires and loves us. We have His heart! And nothing can change that.

God's heart was made ours by the gift of His Son Jesus. Jesus saw to it that we would have the privileges, those same to the heir of the throne, as He does. We are precious and lovely in God's sight because of what Christ Jesus afforded us. As a song once said: "How deep the Fathers love for us. How vast beyond all measure. That He should give His only Son. To make a wretch His treasure." We are God's treasured possession1. He took great pleasure in making sure of that. We were, are and will always be chosen by God for God2!

It is not always an easy thing to totally recognize and accept this truth, but as God has often reminded me. "It is simple."

He has done all the work for us and in return He simply asks us to trust in Him and rest in His love. A love that is divine and endless. A love that is secure and constant. A love that "can not" be shaken! A love so powerful it is deserving of our trust.

Everything God has sought to make available to us He has accomplished through Jesus Christ! There is nothing unavailable to us or out of reach for us.

With that in mind, how could we ever give less than our "full" trust to God?

It is such a splendid thought to know we want and need for "nothing" in God's love!!! I can't express enough how we must take the fullness of His love to heart. The totality of His love must be part of who we are. It must be deeply engraved on our hearts and minds if we are to truly have the desires of our heart and the level of victory God desires for us.

We can do "nothing" apart from His love! We are easy prey to the enemy who "seeks to steal, kill and destroy us3" without the cover of God's love written upon us. Which is why we must recognize and choose to accept God's love in its fullness through childlike faith. A faith that simply says I trust in You. I trust in Your love. I trust in who You are and what You've done for me.

For we are His sweet and precious children and to honor Him is to bring Him joy through acceptance of His love.

And who could refuse such a love? It is His love and His love alone that is far reaching. It cries out to hold you, to bare your burdens, wipe away your tiers and give you joy, peace and strength; all while reminding you of who He sees you to be. A view and vantage point we all need to see from!

You are valued and beautiful in God's sight!!!
