Thoughts on our Father and being a father

I believe nothing illustrates what God puts up with better than trying to put a fussy baby to sleep.

Even though said beautiful, sweet little child is a joy most of the time, when the child is tired she becomes very irritable. She knows she is tired but fights it as hard as she can until she finally relents and gives into sleep.

We very often struggle against God when we feel Him moving on our lives because our flesh is in opposition to Him (Galatians 5:17). But a good father doesn’t lose his temper when the hadn’t resists because he realizes it’s just in her nature to resist the same way our Good Father remains calm and loving when our flesh resists Him.

It is part of the nature of our flesh to rebel, but it has been overcome by the blood of Jesus and through the power of God.
