Today’s exhortation – Daddy God
“See what great love The Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! …” (1 John 3:1). I believe when God calls Himself Father, it’s not just a title, but who He really is to us and He also wants to do everything a father does with his children with us. Therefore to our women, you are all “Daddy’s girls.” We all know how father’s love their daughters and are very protective over them. How on their wedding days they get walked to the altar by their dads and get to dance with their fathers. It’s just what our Father God wants to be doing with you ladies. His desire is to treat all of you like princesses because in His eyes you are, Queens!
To the men, Father God is a father who will go play football with us in the park or read to us at night. He’s the one who will go to football matches with us. Teach us how to shave and do all the stuff every father does with his sons. Finally, He calls all of us friends. The Lord Jesus said or did nothing except what He saw or heard from The Father say or do and so when He called us His ‘friends’, that was The Father calling us friends! That means we can tell Him anything and share everything with Him. Almighty God is our Father and our friend and He loves us beyond anything we can ever imagine. Hallelujah! Amen
