I just wanted to take the time to put these things in writing so that you can be sure about a few things. Of course, I am aware of everything that goes on in your everyday life. Like I told you before in Psalm 139, “I am familiar with all your ways. I know when you sit and rise. Before a word reaches your tongue I know your thoughts. In fact, I’m the one that formed your unborn body and planned your entire life out before you were even born.” But, enough about that I really need to remind you of some other things.
First, I love you VERY much. More than words can express and any act could display. More than your earthly mom, dad, children, or spouse could ever love you. Sure, it broke my heart to let my son Jesus die on that cross, but it was the only way I could restore our relationship that was hindered by sin. I’m so glad you chose to admit your sin, believe in Jesus and receive my free gift of salvation. I have written your name in the “Book of Life” and nothing can ever deny your eternal reservations in Heaven. My child when you get to Heaven you aren’t going to believe your eyes or ears because this place is amazing. I know you’ve stayed in a few really nice places in your lifetime, but those places have nothing on the mansion I’ve built just for you.
Secondly, I am very proud of you. I know you’ve had a lot thrown your way and people pulling on you day and night. I’m fully aware of every good deed and hardship you’ve endured for my sake. Sure, you’re far from perfect, but that will always be the case. I just want you to know that I’m proud to call you my child. Anything you do that brings a smile to someone else’s face brings a smile to mine. You are certainly storing up treasures in Heaven with every move you make for my glory. Please remember, my love is not dependent upon performance or perfection. It does mean a whole lot to me that you are willing to do whatever I ask you to do every day you wake up. I wish all my children were as obedient.
Now, I know you know this, but this is worth repeating. You need to stop trying to make sense of everything happening in and around you. I am still large and in charge. Everything I allow is for a purpose. Everything I’ve done in your life up until now has been by grand design. There are still greater days ahead and challenges. I just simply need you to “take up your cross and follow me daily” (Luke 9:23). Don’t question my orders, don’t doubt the outcome, and for sure don’t try to make sense of it all. Your job is simply to obey. My faithfulness will prove itself time and time again. I’m not trying to yell at you, but you do need to remember “Who’s Your Daddy.” Enough of that let’s move on.
Of course, there are many more things I could say, but most of it I have already written in my word (The Bible). In closing please know that you can’t live by sight, but must keep pressing on by faith. Storms will continue to come and go. Temptations will always be there. And, just like my son Jesus you will feel overwhelmed at times. Just know, I will fight for you, I will carry you, and I will be there for you always even until the end of this age. Even if everyone abandons you, your friends forsake you, and your plans fail you. I will not let you go!!!!!!!! I hope you never forget these things. I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU,
Your Heavenly Dad
