Does God feel like a loving Father to you? Does He feel like the kind of Father that you could crawl up in His lap and snuggle with or swing in a swing with?
He is. I know because I snuggle. I climb into His lap. I swing with Him. I know that I am held firmly and securely no matter where I am with Him. He is my Protector and the Love of my eternal life. I must trust Him in order to sit in the vulnerable position as the child above. I am learning to trust more and more.
For I, the LORD your God, hold your right hand; it is I who say to you, “Fear not, I am the One Who helps you.” Isaiah 41:13
The LORD is my strength and my shield; My heart trusts in Him, and I am helped; Therefore my heart exults, And with my song I shall thank Him. Psalm 29:7
“Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it.” Luke 18:17
Abba Father, You are the best. You love me the way I am. You strengthen me to do what You have called me to do and to be. You hold me close that I know You are with me. You teach me trust by being Who You are…my Father, my Protector, my Strength. You are my All, Abba. I want to learn and be the clay in Your hands. I am sorry when I become afraid and lose my ability to trust You. I am learning. I thank You for Your patience with me and for being my Teacher. I love You, Abba Father. I pray in the Name of Jesus. Amen.
