This morning when I checked my text messages a very dear friend sent me this to encourage my heart and it did in so many ways. I would like to share this letter with my readers.
You may not know Me, but I know everything about you.
I know when you sit down and when you rise up.
I am familiar with all your ways.
Even the very hairs on your head are numbered.
For you were made in my image.
In me you live, you move and have your being.
For you are My offspring.
I knew you before you were conceived.
I chose you when I planned creation.
You were not a mistake.
For all your days are written in My book.
I determined the exact day of your birth and where you would live.
You were fearfully and wonderfully made.
I knit you together in your mother’s womb.
And brought you forth on the day you were born.
If I have been misrepresented by those who don’t know me,
I am not distant and angry.
But am the complete expression of love.
And it is My desire to lavish My love on you,
Simply because you are my child and I am your Father.
I offer you more than your earthly father ever could.
For I am the perfect Father.
Every good gift that you receive comes from My hand;
For I am your providers and I meet all your needs.
My plan for your future has always been filled with hope.
Because I love you with an everlasting love.
My thoughts towards you are countless as the sand on the seashore.
And I rejoice over you with singing.
I will never stop doing good to you;
For you are my treasured possession.
I desire to establish you with all My heart and all My soul.
And I want to show you great and marvelous things.
If you seek Me with all your heart you will find Me.
Delight in Me and I will give you the desires of your heart—
For it is I who gave you those desires.
I am able to do more for you than you could possibly imagine,
For I am your greatest encourager.
I am also the Father who comforts you in all your troubles,
When you are broken hearted, I am close to you.
As a shepherd carries a lamb;
I have carried you close to my heart.
One day I will wipe every tear from your eyes.
And I’ll take away all the pain you’ve suffered on this earth.
I am your Father and I love you even as I loved my son Jesus.
For in Jesus My love for you is revealed.
He is the exact representation of My being.
He came to demonstrate I am for you, not against you.
And to tell you I am not counting your sins.
Jesus died so that you and I could be reconciled.
His death was the ultimate expression of My love for you.
I gave up everything I loved that I might gain your love.
If you receive the gift of my son Jesus, you receive Me,
And nothing will ever separate you from My love again.
Come home and I’ll throw the biggest party heaven has ever seen!
I have always been Father and will always be Father.
My question is…
Will you be My child?
I am waiting for you.
Love, Your Dad
When you feel alone, lost, confused or depressed read this letter again. Because it comes from the heart of God—from His Word. And know that He holds His word even above His name. (Psalm 138:2)
