As I sat in my quiet time today God showed me how he is truly my daddy. As I was praying and seeking Him for the things we need, my time got interrupted. I kept hearing my children calling me. At first I was trying to ignore them really because a lot of times when they call it is for not for what I think is important. But they kept calling, so I got up, opened the door and answered. Sure enough it was as expected, another one of those “he’s hitting me, she yelled at me…etc.” situations. Definitely not worthy of the interruption of my quiet time with God. When I was getting up I felt the spirit leading me to go and check. So I did. When I went back to pray I started by telling the Lord I was sorry for that interruption. Then I was reminded how he already knew it was coming. So I told God, “well I guess you knew I was going to get up anyway because that is not the kind of parent you made me. If my children call you know I have to get up and answer their call. I can’t just ignore them.”
Just as I said that God said, Exactly! I am your father and when you call me I cannot just sit and not answer your call. I have heard you calling my name and I have come to your rescue. I have come to answer you. All I could do was cry and give Him praise. What I thought was a bother or an inconvenience to get up and see what my babies were up to, was a lesson for me. It was for God to show me that He has not forgotten me. He heard my cry and he is answering me.
What are you crying out to God for today? What are you asking Him for? What do you need Him to move for you today? Rest assured He has heard your cry. He is such an awesome father that He does not delay. He comes just as we call. Our father loves us and He is waiting to give us our hearts desire. He wants to meet our need. Call Him today and He will answer.
The Bible says in 1 John 3:1, “How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!” He loves you and He loves me. He says, “[He] will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Jesus Christ” (Philippians 4:19). He says to, “delight yourself in [Him], and he will give you the desires of your heart” (Psalm 37:4). Desires that he placed there. Ask Him. Cry out to our father, our daddy. Know that he WILL hear your cry.
