Good Father

God is our good Father.
His intentions are good. 
His thoughts about you are good.
His reactions when we mess up are good.
His storehouse of everything you could ever need is good. 
He is good. 

If we Pursue a heart picture of God based on the Word of God, this is the picture it paints. Suddenly the darts of the enemy are met by an accurate image of our uncompromising precious loving father. Those darts of doubt, fear, and torment have no place to land.

Even our own self-talk that spirals into a pool of pain. This pool starts to drain from the deep end as the actual image of the one who made us and treasures us is revealed.

In my own life the undone places and parts of me that seem to be in a cycle that never seems to grow past me. Those places unravel as I love on my savior, as I allow the Holy Spirit a louder voice in my everyday life. This is all intentional but what comes of it almost seems effortless.
He is a good, good father and He loves us.

Romans 8:15-16
And you did not receive the “spirit of religious duty,” leading you back into the fear of never being good enough. But you have received the “Spirit of full acceptance,” enfolding you into the family of God. And you will never feel orphaned, for as he rises up within us, our spirits join him in saying the words of tender affection, “Beloved Father!” For the Holy Spirit makes God’s fatherhood real to us as he whispers into our innermost being, “You are God’s beloved child!”
