Child of God

Description

God is waiting for us to reach out to Him, just as we wait for our children to come to us when they need comfort and love.

John 1:12

Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God.

When your child is hurting in any way, what do you do as a mom? You take your arms, wrap them lovingly around your child and you hold them, saying, “I am here. I love you.”  Sometimes, that is exactly what your child needs--those warm hugs can make all their problems fade into the distance.  Did you know your Heavenly Father wants to love you in that same fashion? When God looks at you, He sees His child.  Just as a mother would never turn her back on her child, God will never turn His back on you, because you are His child. He loves us more than we can ever imagine.  He wants to wrap His loving arms around us and hold us through our hard days.

Today, or anytime you may be hurting, weak or need someone to love you, go to God like your child would come to you.  Ask God to wrap you in His arms and love you. Not only is God willing to hold you, He wants to be there for you.  He wants you to realize that He is all you need. Allow Him to be your strength when you are weak, your rock and your foundation.  His love will carry you through anything life will throw your way. God is waiting for you to reach out to Him, just like we wait for our children to come to us when they need comforting and love.

Prayer

Father,

Thank You that I am Your child.  It is amazing that through Jesus, I have the right to be Your child, receiving all the privileges that come with being the daughter of a King.  But, most importantly Father, I get Your love.  You are the perfect Father and I am so grateful.
