Have you ever seen a little girl sitting in her father’s lap while he read to her, told her a story, or simply talked to her; the child gazing up at her father, watching his lips move, seeing his eyes sparkling with love for her, his countenance beaming at the marvel of her; on the child’s face, an expression of wonder and delight?
That is how God wants us to look at Him.
He longs to see us beaming as we gaze up at Him, wondering how we could be so lucky to have such an awesome Father, and wondering, too, how He could love us so unconditionally.
A father would give his little girl the moon and stars if they were his to give. Likewise, our heavenly Father wants to give us all things good. He wants to give us hope and peace and love. In fact, He’s already given them to us. All we have to do is… accept them.
Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart. Psalm 37:4
