II Corinthians 6:18
And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.
How comforting to know that we have an eternal Father that will be just that to us. He loves us as His very own children. He cares for us and wants to see the very best for us. We are His flesh and blood, therefore we get to enjoy the inheritance that He has to give, eternal security. That is more rewarding than anything that we can ever have here on earth. So remember that if you have had a father on earth that has let you down, or not been what you may have expected, that God will be that Father, always there, loving, supporting, and everything that you could ever imagine. Don't get discouraged when you may have to be disciplined, we all need it, how else will we learn from our mistakes? Don't forget to take that time to climb up in His lap and spend it with Him. A father loves nothing more than to spend time with his children. They are his treasure.
