A TRIBUTE TO THE MOST AMAZING FATHER IN THE UNIVERSE
I originally wrote and published this post as a tribute to my Father for Father’s Day of 2011 and thought I’d repost it again this year because He continues to be so amazing to me.
I have the most amazing Father in the universe.
He is the most caring Father that you can ever imagine.
Before He formed me in my mother’s womb He knew me and called me and gave me a purpose and destiny to carry out on the earth, He even prepared good works in advance for me to do.
Although I have millions of brothers and sisters all around the world, My Father always has time for me. Whenever I call on Him, whether night or day, He is there. He has an open door policy and loves when I come to spend time with Him; He never rushes me out of His presence. Wherever I go, my Father is with me, in fact, He promised never to leave me nor forsake me. I am so special to Him that He has numbered the very hairs on my head, no I did not say counted, I said numbered, He actually has them numbered – wow!
My Father takes really good care of me. He is my source.
Because of Him, I do not have to worry about what I will eat, drink, or wear. When I have a need, all I have to do is ask Him, and guess what, He is so caring and attentive to me that He knows what I need even before I ask. Whatever I need My Father supplies whether spiritual, mental, emotional, physical, social, or material. He does it all according to His riches in glory. He has unlimited access to everything because He owns the earth and everything in it, including the cattle on a thousand hills, the gold and silver and all other resources. – My Father is rich and generous!
Not only is my Father caring, He is also extremely loving.
He loves me so much that He allowed my oldest brother, His first-born and only Son to suffer and die to pay the price for my sins just so I could be a part of His family. Can you imagine that? He gave His first and only begotten Son to die and pay the price for me to become a part of His family and because He made such a big initial sacrifice for me, He promised not to withhold any good thing from me – I am so blessed!
Not only is my Father caring and extremely loving, He is also very forgiving.
Whenever I do something wrong, if I go to Him and confess it with a sincere heart, He is faithful and just and forgives me of that sin and cleanses me from all unrighteousness. He never despises a broken heart. He is long-suffering, compassionate, and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in love. He does not harbor anger. My Father never treats me as my sins deserve or repays me according to my faults. To give you an idea of the size of His love toward me, go outside and look up into the sky. As high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is His love for me and as far as the east is from the west, that is as far as He removes my sins. – My Father is the best!
Not only is my Father caring, extremely loving, and very forgiving, He is also wise and powerful.
There is absolutely nothing or no one more powerful than He. As a matter of fact, He holds all power and authority in the heavens and the earth and any power you see manifested has been delegated or allowed by Him. He sets up kings and queens and takes them down. He reduces the rulers of this world to nothing, no sooner are they established, He blows on them and they wither away. He laughs at His enemies. He blows them away like chaff and they melt in His presence like wax on a candle. – You don’t fool around with my Father!
My Father is so powerful and wise that He created the heavens and stretched them out like a canopy. He created and named each star and hung them in the galaxy. He measured the waters of the earth in the palm of His hand and the dimensions of the heaven with the breath of His hands. He commands the winds and the waves. He is so wise that no one can counsel Him. He knows and declares the end of a matter from the beginning and whatever He declares becomes; He says “be” and it is. His purposes stand and He does whatever He pleases and absolutely no one or nothing can stop Him. – Mind blowing!
My Father is not only caring, extremely loving, very forgiving, powerful and wise, He is also entirely trustworthy.
Not only does He tell the truth, He is Truth. It is impossible for Him to lie. Whatever He says He will do, He does; He never ever breaks a promise. I can lean, rely, and completely depend on Him for all things and in all things. – I am so privileged to have such a Father!
Who is my Father?
He is the God of the Bible, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the God of Israel, the one and only true and living God.
He is Jehovah, the Self-Existing Eternal One.
He is Jehovah-Jireh – The Lord my Provider.
He is Jehovah-Nissi – The Lord my Banner of Love and Protection.
He is Jehovah-Shalom – The Lord my perfect Peace.
He is Jehovah-Tsid-Kenu – The Lord my Righteousness.
He is Jehovah-Shammah – The Lord, the Omnipresent One.
He is Jehovah-Saboath – The Lord of Hosts, my Protector.
He is Jehovah-Rapha – The Lord my Healer
To whom can you compare my Father?
To what can you compare Him?
There is none like Him, absolutely none!
I have the most amazing Father in the universe; He is simply amazing!
On this Father’s Day, as a small tribute to Him and an expression of my love for Him, I just thought I’d let you know.
TO ALL FATHERS,
“HAPPY FATHER’S DAY!”
