Open Heaven 11 November 2018: [Sunday] Daily Devotional By Pastor E. A. Adeboye – What a Great Father He is!
WHAT A GREAT FATHER HE IS! – Sunday November 11th 2018
Memorize: the LORD preserveth the strangers; he relieveth the fatherless and window: but the way of the wicked he turnenth upside down. Psalm 146:9
Read: – Psalm 68:4-10 (KJV)
The God that we serve is a Father who is always present and is ever ready to help. He is full of love, compassion and mercy for all His children, and He gives each one of them uninterrupted attention. As the Almighty Father He is capable of giving us everything that we ever need. He know His children even more than they even know themselves – He knows their tomorrow and every single detail about them even before they were born .
No matter how great and good an earthly father is, he will still fall short and fail in some aspects of his children’s well-being. An earthly father cannot boast of being with his children always. An earthly father cannot boast knowing his children so well that he knows how to comfort them at all times. Even when he says he is capable of giving his children everything they asks for, he cannot give them good health, retentive memory, safe journey, and other things that money can’t buy. Our heavenly Father is the Perfect Father to the fatherless, and He is a Father that other fathers run to in the times of troubles. His love for his children immeasurably surpasses the love that an earthly father has for his children. Some people frown when they hear me call God my Daddy. Well, I don’t know about you, but this God his my Daddy. He has shown so much care to me ever since I met Him that I cannot but see Him as my Daddy. He understand me, comforts me, protect me, heals me, corrects me, helps me and carries me. If God has been all these to you, I want you to take a moment, look up to heaven and just say, “Daddy I love you. “
Have you been fatherless? Have you been lonely? Has your earthly father been distant and cold? Then you need to experience the tender loving kindness of Abba Father. To belong to HIM, you need to be reborn by Him. His love is enough to wrap you in warmth for evermore. To enter into this special relationship with Him, confess these words:
Dear God, I come to you in the name of Jesus. I acknowledge that I am a sinner. I am sorry for my sins and the life that I have lived. Lord, I want to start afresh; come into my heart and be the Lord of my life. Make me a new creature in YOU. Thank you Abba Father for saving me.
After making these confessions in faith, you now need to find a Bible- believing church to attend so that you can build the relationship that has just begun between you and this Great Father.
Key Point: God says to you today, “I have loved you with an everlasting love: I have drawn you with loving-kindness” (Jeremiah 31:3)
