Psalm: 147:4 He determines the number of the stars; he calls them each by name.
Don’t Be A Fool. Recognize Your Dependence On God. As The Days Become Dark And The Nights Become Dreary, Realize That There Is A God Who Rules Above.” – Martin Luther King Jr.
You may already know GOD loves you. You’ve been told he loves you and you believe it and just accept it. But you don’t feel you KNOW IT.
Does that make sense?
It wasn’t until I had my first daughter that I really understood God’s Love and how much he truly loves me. Not just me, all of you. We are all his children.
I don’t want someone reading this to feel they will only understand God’s love if they have a child. That was the moment that I realized. You may have your own way or maybe that moment hasn’t arrived yet. Have faith that it will.
In this post I really hope I can help you to understand the love that The Creator Of The Entire Universe has for you. Even if its just a little bit.
Unconditional love is a real. It truly is so real. Unconditional love is a love without any limitations. You just love. You love so much. Having my first daughter, holding this little girl that I created did something to me. I became aware of a love that I didn’t even know existed.
Holding her I knew I would do anything for her, that I would really do anything for her. She is apart of me. She is mine. At that moment, I felt the need to always protect, provide, and guide her in whatever that she does in her life. And I of course still feel this way…..x’s 2 now with two daughters!
Below are two perspectives to think about. That I feel may help you to understand the LOVE that your GOD has for you.
PERSPECTIVE NUMBER ONE
Think of your child or children right now. If you don’t have a child or children imagine for just a moment, that you have a child.
What do you want for them? or What would you want for them?
Just think about that……
Being a parent whether you are a Mother or Father you want the best for your children. You want them to always be happy, to succeed, to not be afraid, to love themselves, and deep down to always need you and keep you involved in their life.
Because as they get older….. no matter what, you will always see that child in their face. Your heart breaks just thinking of a any time where they won’t need you anymore.
But the truth is, they will always need you and you will always need them.
YOU ARE GODS CHILD. GOD IS YOUR HEAVENLY FATHER
Those things you just thought about…..those things that you want for your child or children or imaginary child……
He wants all those things for you AND MORE. His love is more then unconditional…..it’s…….I don’t even know! It’s MORE!
GOD wants to see you happy, he wants you to succeed, he wants to see you living your life and accomplishing what your soul desires.
PERSPECTIVE NUMBER 2
Think of your child or children again. Or think of your imaginary child.
As a parent you get upset with your child at times. You become frustrated with them. You ask why are you doing that? What was the purpose of doing that? Their behavior at times leaves you baffled.
YOU KNOW THOUGH IN YOUR HEART……NO MATTER WHAT THEY DO, YOU WILL ALWAYS LOVE THEM.
Whenever I get upset, I take a step back and wonder how many times has GOD has asked those questions with me. Why is she doing that? She knows she shouldn’t be doing….why isn’t she listening to me? Those thoughts put me into place real fast.
I forgive my children the way I would like GOD to forgive me, for the times I have disappointed or upset.
I have moments where I ask my daughters what is it that you want, I can’t help you if you don’t tell me is what I tell them.
GOD works the same way. You need to talk to him. Tell him what you need from him, express your need for guidance and help.
You tell him through PRAYER.
Having a child you want to give them everything that they desire. GOD wants to give you everything your heart wants but if its not expressed through prayer how can he give it to you.
People think, He’s GOD, he should know what I want.
But it doesn’t work like that. A relationship needs to be established.
Here’s an example:
A Mother has a child. The child needs the Mother. The child relies on the Mother for many things. As the child gets older the relationship they once had changes. The child wants to become independent.
(GOD CREATES YOU)
The child is now an adult. The adult and the Mother do not talk at all anymore. The Mother who brought this child into the world still loves this child and will always love this child even though they have lost touch.
(AS YOU GET OLDER, LIFE HAPPENS, YOU LOSE YOUR FAITH)
The adult does not talk to the Mother, contact the Mother, or wants anything to do with the Mother for whatever reason.
(YOU DONT TALK TO GOD ANYMORE, YOU MAY NOT EVEN BELIEVE IN HIM ANYMORE)
The Mother wants a relationship with the child again but the adult chooses to continue living life without his Mother. He makes the choice to push her away.
(GOD WANTS A RELATIONSHIP WITH YOU, BUT HE GAVE YOU FREE WILL)
The Mother wants to help the adult (her child) in anyway that she can.
(HE WANTS TO HELP YOU SO MUCH BUT YOU DON’T TELL HIM WHAT YOU NEED)
But how can she help and give him what he needs if her child will not talk to her.
(GOD TRIES TO REACH, BUT IS CONSTANTLY IGNORED)
She continues to try to establish a relationship with her child again and again. Time after time. But he/she ignores her calls, ignores her letters, ignores anything that has to do with her.
The Mother will never give it up, I can tell you that.
(GOD WILL NEVER GIVE UP ON YOU BECAUSE HE LOVES YOU)
In this scenario GOD is the Mother and you are the Adult (his child).
As I tried to make clear in the parenthesis
*Re-read that and just think about it*
He tries to talk to you daily and he wants to hear from you. I believe it is so important to build your relationship with your Heavenly Father. That is the key to living your best life.
As a Mother I would be absolutely devastated if my daughters decided not to talk to me anymore.
I want GOD in my life.
I want his help, I want him to know how I am doing, I want his guidance and wisdom to help me live this life.
I KNOW…..I know God wants this from me because I want this from my daughters. I want them to always need me, to always love me, to talk to me, to learn from me.
John 4:16 And So We Know And Rely On The Love God Has For Us. God Is Love. Whoever Lives In Love Lives In God, And God In Them.
I hope this post gets you thinking a little bit and helps you to understand how loved you are and how he wants to hear from you.
When you pray and seek wisdom from the Creator Of The Universe, your life will be changed forever.
