Day 29: A Love Letter From Your Father

m1Spending three days with my daughter in New York City has been an amazing time.  (making my daily blog updates a challenge the past few days.   Enjoy Day 28 as I’m reminded of ‘my heavenly Father’s love for me’.  (*inspiring me to love on my own children in like manner)

A LOVE LETTER FROM YOUR FATHER

Taken from Isaiah – compiled and written by Dr. Steve McVey

My dear child, I always long to be gracious to you, waiting to show you my compassion. (30:18) You are My servant and I have chosen you, not rejected you. Never be afraid because I am always with you. Don’t be anxious about things going on around you, because I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will uphold you with my righteous hand. (41:9-10)

I am the One who has named you and you are Mine. (43:1) You are precious in My sight. You are honored and I love you. (43:4) Don’t dwell on things that have already happened or ponder things in the past. I will do something new. Do you want to see it? I will make a way when there is no way. (43:18-19) I will go before you and make the rough places smooth. I will shatter the barriers that block your way and will give you treasures, wealth from secret places so that you will know that it is I, the Lord God of Israel who calls you by name. (45:2-3)

Listen to Me. You have been carried by Me since the day you were born, from the womb. That will never change. I will still be the same, carrying you all the way to your old age. When your hair has all turned gray, I will still be carrying you. I always have and I always will. I will forever hear you and continuously deliver you. (46:3-4)

I am God and there is nobody else like Me. I determine everything – from the beginning to the end, even things which haven’t happened yet. My purposes will be established. Every one of them will be accomplished for My own good pleasure. Everything I say, I will do. I planned it and it you can be assured that it will happen.(46:9-11)

I have sworn to you that I will never be angry with you again. (54:9) My lovingkindness will never be removed from you. My covenant with you will never be shaken. I will always have compassion on you. (54:9-10) You will be called “My Delight” because I do delight in you. I will forever rejoice over you. (62:40-5)

Always,

Your loving Father

  1. allow Holy Spirit to widen your pocket to capacity to receive relationally all that Dad has already &continues to lavishly love on you and in you and through you – it’s a process – discipline hurts but worth the training from a loving Dad who wants his kids to mature and walk in his good things…if you are like Elijah under the juniper or Jonah under the gourd, take it from me it’s way easier to turn into the face of the Father and look full into his wonderful face …Turn your eyes upon Jesus & see through his window the Father…,Look full in His wonderful face,..And the things of earth will grow strangely dim,…In the light of His glory and grace.
