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.


Milk and honey, meat and potatoes

For although by this time you should be teachers, you again need to have someone teach you the rudiments of the first principles of the oracles of God. You have come to need milk, and not solid food. For everyone who lives on milk is not experienced in the word of righteousness, for he is a baby.But solid food is for those who are full grown, who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern good and evil. (Hebrews 5:12-14 WEB)

I pray for those of us, my brothers and sisters, who are not ready for the solid food of the word be trained and made ready. Although it says you are as babies, the word does not condemn or curse you, but this should be comforting because you have many teachers and family to raise you in spiritual maturity.

But the only way to grow in God is to feed on His word. Be taught by His word and holy spirit so that you may grow and have your senses sharpened. I release this in Jesus’ name, amen
