My Father’s Character

on

It doesn’t matter what you have done or where you have been, there is a God in Heaven who is ready and able to restore you.

I go through many days feeling unworthy of the great calling that God has put on me. You see, I know me. I know who I have been and I know what I have done and sometimes there is this voice in my head that tells me that I will never be good enough for God. And I begin to doubt. Thinking… Who am I? Why would the creator of the world want to use me (in any capacity, much less one so great as ministry)?

This, my friend, is not the voice of my Father. He would not say these things to me. I know in whom I have believed! My God is full of grace. He is merciful. He is faithful and forgiving. He is holy and immutable. He is sovereign. He is righteous. He omnipresent, omnipotent, and omniscient. He is a just God. He is love. And He loves me. I have been set free, my sins are forgiven! So just as a parent would not say to their own child that they are unworthy or not good enough, I must remember that God would not say that to me either.

The character of my Father is known by His word; and learning to trust God’s plans for me means I need to know His character. Join me in a study of God’s character this month.

Shew me thy ways, O LORD; teach me thy paths. Psalm 25:4
