GOOD GOOD FATHER!

Last Sunday was Father’s day and for the better part of the day I was feeling all shades of blue but in the midst of all my feelings God managed to reach out to me and fill the void I had in my heart.

I remember I was in bed when the words to a certain song popped in my mind. It was a song I had heard before but I didn’t know who the singer was. The more I ignored the words the more they kept ringing so loudly in me that I was forced to google the words. You can imagine my utter surprise when I discovered the name of the song – Good Good Father by Chris Tomlin.

I sat up in bed perplexed to say the least and at once I knew that the Holy Spirit was trying to tell me something, He was reaching out to me in my moments of despair. I listened to the song and it made me break into tears…here I was feeling all blue missing my dad and God was ministering to me that He was my father, and indeed a Good Good Father.

I’ve heard a thousand stories of what they think you’re like
But I’ve heard the tender whispers of love in the dead of night
And you tell me that you’re pleased
And that I’m never alone

You’re a good good father
It’s who you are, it’s who you are, it’s who you are
And I’m loved by you
It’s who I am, it’s who I am, it’s who I am

I’ve seen many searching for answers far and wide
But I know we’re all searching
For answers only you provide
‘Cause you know just what we need
Before we say a word

You’re a good good father
It’s who you are, it’s who you are, it’s who you are
And I’m loved by you
It’s who I am, it’s who I am, it’s who I am

Because you are perfect in all of your ways
You are perfect in all of your ways
You are perfect in all of your ways to us

Finding that song was God’s gift to me on Father’s day: a reminder that I am not fatherless, am not alone and above all that I am truly loved by my heavenly Father. It’s amazing how throughout the week that song has popped up in my circles: someone sharing the song on social media, went to a service yesterday and the worship leader sang it. It was almost as if God didn’t want me to forget that I am loved by Him and that’s who I am. That’s how He carried me over from my blues to a place of joy, happiness, peace and contentment, a place of reminding me who I was in Him.

Indeed God is concerned even with the lil teeny weeny bits of our lives that may seem minute to us. Many at times we envision Him as the creator of the galaxies and universe who is only in the business of big miracles but if we let Him, if we surrender ourselves to an intimate relationship with Him, we end up experiencing His presence, power and unconditional love in our daily lives.

Yes He made the stars and the skies but He also lovingly fashioned you in His image, He knows the hairs on your head: He is concerned with every part of your life, from how you speak, dress, laugh, live, love, work (all in the scriptures). He is a Big God even in the smallest of things.

It’s not enough to know about God, you need to know God.

It’s not enough to hear what God can do for others, you need to experience it for yourself.

It’s not enough to live through the testimonies of others, you need to have an encounter with the King of Kings and your life will never be the same again.

The best part about it, He is waiting and He is willing. Revelation 3:20 “Look! I stand at the door and knock. If you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in, and we will share a meal together as friends.”

It’s not enough to hear God is a father, you need to know Him as your father. My prayer for you, in the name of Jesus, is that you will let Him in and experience the love that is so overwhelming to the point that nothing can separate you from it, Amen.

P.S. The gratitude challenge continues next week, we have amazing testimonies of what God is doing for His children.

Have an awesome blessed weekend and remember that You Are Loved!!

    That’s a very inspiring peace. God bless you as you grow to love and worship Him. He is the best Father. I have seen and experienced His fatherhood for the last over 30 years when my earthly father disappeared before I met him. Blessed day.
