Dear reader, are you aware of the fact that you are not an orphan? You have a Father in heaven who loves you so much as to give you all that you need here in this life. He knows all your concerns, burdens, cares, difficulties, problems, conflicts, shortages, failures and defeats. He knows why you are going through these issues in your life and has made mends for it all. He wants you to use all your adverse experiences to learn valuable lessons in faith and trust in the Father. So when you feel certain needs, it ought to renew your dependence on your Father. You have to believe that your Father knows it in its magnitude and has already made provisions for you. But you are expected to ask the Father in faith. You have to believe that your Father will provide for all your needs according to His riches in glory. As your Father is the King, you are a prince or princess because you are His child. All His resources are for you to enjoy with a grateful heart. What a wonderful and all-knowing Father we have in Heaven, who knows us and our circumstances so well as to know what our intimate needs are! He knows our needs before the need even appears. He prepares all things well in advance so that when the need is felt, it can be met according to His dignity and yardstick. As we walk with Him and talk with Him along life’s narrow ways, He reassures us of His resources to meet all our needs at the right time, and as it pleases Him as the benevolent, compassionate and merciful Father. When we have such a benevolent Father, let us go to Him just as little children go to their fathers to ask to meet our needs. He gives us perfect gifts on the basis of His unfathomable capacity. Today let us draw upon the unlimited and never-exhausting reservoirs of our Heavenly Father and be content with what He gives. Let us praise Him for what He has given us in the past, what He gives us daily and what He has promised to give us in our tomorrows.Psalms 145:19 – He will fulfill the desire of those who fear Him; He will also hear their cry and save them. Thought for Today
It will take us all eternity to begin to understand the status, dignity, greatness and resourcefulness of our Heavenly Father.
