As a young girl, I remember a church member giving me money. Quickly calculating, I now had a goldmine. My jingling purse captured the attention of my dad. The set of his jaw wiped the smile off my face as I told him about my gift. In a firm, but loving voice, he told me to never accept money from anyone. “Tell them no thank you, my dad gives me money.”
Not everyone had a loving dad, like mine. Some never knew their fathers and some would rather forget their fathers along with the pain. But, I want you to meet a Father who will never hurt you, leave, or forsake you, and who loves unconditionally. He is my heavenly Father and I hope yours, too. And, if you don’t know Him, let me tell you more about Him.
Our Father wants us to come to Him with our requests. He desires for us to have a relationship with Him, to trust and believe in Him. The Word tells us that God knows what we need before we ask. But, to fulfill our needs, He wants us to pray (Matthew 6:8). We have not because we ask not (James 4:2-4). Try God for yourself, know that He is good, and be blessed as you take refuge in Him (Psalm 34:8).
