You are Invited

“… I will be a Father to you, and you will be My sons and daughters,” says the Lord Almighty.  2 Corinthians 6:18

Today you are invited to consider what these words mean to you at this time in your life.  How does the relationship you had with your own father colour the concept of God as Father for you?  How do you feel when you hear God telling you that you are His son or His daughter?  How does your relationship with your son or your daughter (if you have any) colour this concept?  Where do you need help from God if your own experiences are not happy ones?  Praise God for the good relationships you have and celebrate His Fatherhood in worship.  Or ask Him to show you what it means to both Him and you to have Him as your Father – how does it differ from earthly relationships that have soured?  What does He say to you today – and how do you reply?

May God bless you with a sense of perfect fatherhood and perfect sonship today.

About Mandy Hackland

My love in life is to encourage others to deepen their relationship with God. I write devotional material, stories and small group studies with that in mind. I live in South Africa and also love spending time in the bush, bird watching and walking. I do live in the city but make the most of the green spaces that surround me.
