In counseling and talking to people one on one over the years I get amazed at how few people really have a revelation of who God the father is, and His heart towards his children. Don’t get me wrong, I have had some similar mindsets too, but I wanted to dedicate this blog to exposing a few of them.
Many people have the mindset that God is some big guy upstairs ready to drop a piano on their head if they mess up. That kind of religious mindset is completely unscriptural and sad. God is not like that. John 3 :16 says, For God so loved the world that He gave His only son that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have ever lasting life. God loves you. He does not jump all over you when you mess up. Repent and move on. That’s the whole point of the cross.
Another misconception I’ve heard all too often, is that God is too busy to hear you or to help you.
Matthew 19:14 says, Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” If we are born again we are all the children of God. But to take it one step further, is if you’re not born again God is crying out for you to be one of His kids. He loves you so much! God loves for His kids to crawl up and talk to Him. You are never a burden to Him. By talking to Him you’re not taking away from someone else to talk to Him. God’s ability to multi task astounds me. God is able to do more than one thing at once.
Luke 12:7 says, Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows. He loves and cares for us. If any of you have not read the book, The Shack by William P. Young I want to take the time to recommend it. This book had to have come from some divine revelation the writer had to have had. In it the main character gets mad at God for tragedy in his life and ends up having a major God encounter. What is so beautiful about this book is the heart of the father towards his children.
People take the time today to think about your relationship with the Father. Do you have religious mindsets that are not scriptural? Do you see God separated from you? It’s God’s desire to be in a relationship with you. It’s His desire that you would trust Him, beyond what you can see. That’s called faith. When God’s kids have faith in Him, it makes Him excited! God loves you so much. Open your life up to Him today and I assure you that if you do you won’t be disappointed. It’s beyond religion. It’s relationship.
