You many not know me, but I know everything about you (Psalm 139:1). I know when you sit down and when you rise up (Psalm 139:2), I am familiar with all your ways (Psalm 139:3). Even the very hairs of your head are numbered (Mathew 10:29-31) for you are made in my image (Genesis 1:27). In me you live and move and have your being (Acts 17:28). For you are my offspring (Acts 17:28). I knew you even before you were conceived (Jeremiah 1:4-5). I chose you when I planned creation (Ephesians 1:11-12). You were not a mistake, for all your days are written in my book (Psalms 139-15-16). I determined the exact time of your birth and where you would live (Acts 12:26). You are fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139:14). I knit you together in your mother's womb (Psalm 139:13) and brought you forth on the day you were born (Psalms 21:6).
I have been misrepresented by those who don't know me (John 8:41-44). I am not distant an angry, but am the complete expression of love (1 John 4:16). And it is my desire to lavish my love on you, simply because you are my child and I am your father (1 John 3:1). I offer you more than your earthly father ever could because I am the perfect Father (Mathew 5:48). Every good gift that you receive comes from my hands (James 1:17) for I am your provider and meets all your needs (Mathew 6:31-33).
My plans for your future have always been filled with hope (Jeremiah 29:11) because I love you with an everlasting love (Jeremiah 31:3). My thoughts towards you are countless as the sands on the seashore (Psalms 139:17-18) and I rejoice over you with singing (Zephaniah 3:17). I would never stop doing good to you (Jeremiah 32:40) for you are my treasured possession (Exodus 19:5). I desire to establish you with all my heart and soul (Jeremiah 32:41) and I want to show great and marvelous things (Jeremiah 33:3).
If you seek me with all your heart, you will find me (Deuteronomy 4:29). Delight in me and I will give you the desires of your heart (Psalms 37:4) for it is I who give you those desires (Philippians 2:13). I am able to do more for you than you can possible imagine (Ephesians 1:20) for I am your greatest encourager (Thessalonian 2:16-17). I am also the Father who comfort you in all your troubles (2 Corinthians 1:3-40). When you are broken-hearted, I am close to you (Psalms 34:18). As a shepherd carries a lamb, I have carried you close to my heart (Isaiah 40:11). One day I will wipe away every tear from your eyes and I will take away all the pain you have suffered on this earth (Revelations 21:3-4).
I am your Father, and I love you even as I love my son, Jesus (John 17:23). For in Jesus my love for you is revealed (John 17-26). He is the extra representation of my being (Hebrew 1:3). He came to demonstrate that I am for you, not against you (Romans 8:31) and to tell you that I am not counting your sins (2 Corinthians 5:18-19.) His death was the ultimate demonstration of my love for you (Romans 8:31-32). If you receive the gift of my son, Jesus, you receive me (1 John 2:23) and nothing will ever separate you from my love again (Romans 8:38-39). Come home and I will through the biggest party heaven has ever seen (Luke 15:7). I have always been Father, and I will always be Father (Ephesians 3:14-15). My question is...will you be my child (John 1:12-13)? I am waiting for you (Luke 15:11-32).
