I encourage you to listen to one of my favorite songs for all seasons. Indeed, we have such a good Abba Father who loves us so deeply, whose ways are perfect, who gives unexplainable peace and comfort and never leaves us nor forsake us. He goes before us and prepares the way for us. He desires only what’s best for His children.
Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. James 1:17
The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims His handiwork. Psalm 19:1
I will exalt you, my God the King; I will praise your name for ever and ever. Every day I will praise you and extol your name for ever and ever. Psalm 145:1-2
All your works praise you, LORD; your faithful people extol you. They tell of the glory of your kingdom and speak of your might. Psalm 145: 10-11
Praise the Lord from the heavens, praise Him in the heights above. Psalm 148:1
Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad; let the sea resound, and all that is in it. Psalm 96:11
God, You are beautiful beyond description. Your creation declares your glory and magnificence. How awesome is the work of your hands, O God. You are perfect in all of your ways. May your praise continue to be on our lips. We exalt you for You alone are worthy. You deserve the highest praises and honor.
Set a 🔥 in our hearts, God.
God created you in His image. He made you for love and He wants you to have a love relationship with Him. But you only have two options, either you choose Him or reject Him. When you choose Him, you get to enjoy His love and affection. But when you reject Him, it’s not that He doesn’t love you, you just don’t recognize His love for you. You don’t see it or you simply ignore it.
Nevertheless, your stubbornness doesn’t change God’s character. He is still a compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger and abounding in love. He doesn’t want you to perish but He wants to lead you to repentance. There’s always a chance for you to turn to Him and experience a life worth living.
He patiently waits for you to one day realize all the ways He took care of you. How He saw you through. How He hurt when you hurt especially when you’re the one hurting yourself. How he orchestrated divine appointments so that you get to hear about Him or know Him. How He sent people to help you in the darkest days of your life. He’s been there since the day you were born and He’s been loving you even though you never saw it.
I’m praying for you. As you read this, may God lift up the veil so that you may see and encounter His deep love for you and realize the many ways He saved your life. May He speak to your heart and bring you to your knees with this prayer:
“God, forgive me for not seeing your love and rejecting you. Today, I choose to love you and have a relationship with you. I want to seek you with all my heart. Please reveal yourself to me.”
