Our heavenly Father is not some far away God. He is near to us, and we can approach Him, regardless of what needs we come with. Our Father wants to be involved in every detail of our lives. He wants to know and share in our joys and our pains because He loves us.
The word “Father” doesn’t come with endearment to all of us. But perhaps you’ve never had an earthly father to turn to in times of celebration or sorrow. Maybe your dad was absent and uncaring instead of loving and available. If so, you’ve discovered that not all people love sincerely and you’ve been hurt. When this happens, it’s easy to think God acts in the same way. But because He is trustworthy and never changes, we can be assured that His love is unconditional and always present.
Application For Today
Talk to God and either repeat this prayer, or just talk freely about your gratefulness and desire for His love:
Dear Lord, thank You for Your unconditional love. Please give me the grace I need to stop fighting and to receive Your love.
