With chubby little fingers and a smile that would melt the coldest heart Elianah, my six-year-old, stands in front of me. With curly blonde hair and big blue eyes that hold so much love and wonder she very carefully hands me her letter to Santa. “Will you give it to him?” she asks?
“Well, of course!” I reply with great enthusiasm.
I take the list and look over every single item written in crayon and chuckle at the precious misspelled words. It’s so cute I want to frame it. As Elianah’s daddy, this scrap piece of paper with her Christmas wishes has NOW instantly become my TOP priority. As her father, I desire to give her every single item her heart so desires. I WANT TO BLESS HER! Why? Because I’m her father and I love her and desire to lavish her with MY LOVE.
Listen, maybe your earthly father is gone either physically or emotionally but you’re NOT ALONE! You still have a DADDY that loves YOU!
Your HEAVENLY father wants to LAVISH His LOVE on you the exact same way.
“If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!” Matthew 7:11
So ask. We have not because we ask not. So ASK that your JOY may be COMPLETE. Jesus said whatsoever things you desire, believe that you receive them and you will have them.
The LOVE I have in my heart for my daughter, Elianah, is THE LOVE your Father has in His heart for you. He not only hears you He sees the much-needed desires. He feels the desires written on the table of your heart. Your needs have INSTANTLY become His TOP priority. Simply because you are his child and he is your Father.
I’m believing God with you that those things that are heavy on your heart as we close out 2016, those things that can’t be wrapped and put under a tree, will come to pass in your life as a miracle you’ve been praying for and 2017 will be the year of Answered Prayer for YOU a child of GOD!
God knows EXACTLY what you need. HE is a GOOD DAD and with HIM EVERYTHING is POSSIBLE!
“Abba, Father, he said, everything is possible for You.” ~ Jesus (Mark 14:36)
