Today, seek the fathers heart! Remember the session on sonship? Maybe refer back to your notes. You are God’s treasure! You are a precious prince, a mighty warrior and highly favored by God!
“The hardest, gladdest thing in the world is to cry Father from a full heart…the refusal to look up to God as our father is the one central wrong in teh whole human affair; the inability, the one central misery…since we are the sons of God.” – George McDonald
Spend some time today seeking the Fathers heart for you. Ask him fatherly quesitons like:
Dad, were am I strong? Dad, what are some ways I succeed? Dad, I desperatly need fathering, will you father me today?
Listen adn write down what you hear. Follow its fruit. If it leads to destruction then its not from God.
“Those who are led by the spirit of God are sons of God. For you did not receive a spirit that makes you a slave again to fear, but you received the Spirit of sonship. And by him we cry “Abba, Father.” The spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are GOd’s children.” – Romans 8:14-16
