In my “Lord’s Prayer experiment” (see the 1st post on the Lord’s Prayer), this great adventure has shown me some interesting things about God & my connection with Him. In my last post, I talked about God as our Father & about our perceptions of who God is in our lives.
This morning God, my Father, has been talking with me about the basis of His relationship with me – He loves me, as His child. Everything He does originates from His motivation of love for me, His motivation of love for you. Possibly the worst trick you could fall for, is not believing that He loves you, taking His love for granted or ignoring His love for you.
Because of God’s love for us:
- He provides what we need for each day.
- He forgives us & enables us to forgive (the premise of any relationship that has depth)
- He directs my daily path
- He protects me
All because He loves you. All because He loves me. I pray that your Father’s love for you would never become common, mundane or taken for granted.
