“Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has been pleased to give you the kingdom. Luke 12:32
Do you worry about your future? Maybe your struggling financially or spiritually right now, be encouraged knowing that God takes pleasure in giving you his Kingdom.
As a husband and father myself, it gives me great pleasure to be able to provide for my family. From the big things to the basic things, from food or shelter. Being able to give my family what they need makes me happy. It brings great joy to give to those you love and depend on you!
The same is with God, our Heavenly Father. It gives him great pleasure to provide for all our needs also. When we truly put our trust in God, we have the peace and comfort, knowing God will provide all our needs (Philippians 4:19)
“Which of you, if your son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him! Matthew 7:9-11
Once we understand God views us as his Children, it changes your relationship with him. When you understand he is a Good Father, who takes pleasure in giving and providing for his children. So maybe your stressed out right now, not knowing where your next meal is coming from. Put your trust in your Heavenly Father, he will provide for you!
When you understand this, you understand that you don’t have to worry or panic. Just develop that relationship with your “Good Father” in Jesus name Amen
