My Heavenly Daddy

Did you know that there are at least 8 passages in the Bible that talk about God's character? Yup, it's true!

And what do these verses say?

All of them say "the Lord is gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love."

Meditate on that one for a minute! :)

Our God, slow to anger, gracious, abounding in love! If we could really get it in our hearts about how good He is, then we would be more confident about doing what He asks us to do and more bold in approaching the Throne of Grace. We shouldn't be afraid of coming to Him just to chat, or asking Him to meet our needs! He's already promised us that anyway! (Philippians 4:19).

Why are we hesitant to come to our Heavenly Daddy for the little things and the big things in life? He's not too busy and He's ready and willing. You will never hear a voicemail when you call out to God!

Hebrews says that we can approach the Throne of Grace with confidence! So the way I see it, we need to dare to believe God to work in our lives, and look on Him as Father!

Ain't He wonderful? :)
