One thing I have learned over time as a Christian is never to look back and regret where I am now based on where I’m coming from. This feeling of regret often set in when we believe we should have achieved more than we have already accomplished.
Very lately, I have been so busy with juggling my job with maternal and wifely duties topped with building a business that I believe that my relationship with God has not been at a place where I would want it to be. Prayer time has become rushed, taking the time to study God’s Word has become a rarity and please don’t even mention a nice quiet time with my loving Father. Our everyday lives are so boxed with too many things on our ‘to-do’ list, many errands to run, many meetings to attend, many goals to accomplish, kids to take care of, business that requires your attention to grow, career that needs you to fly, family that needs you to be an active and not a passive part of their lives and the list is inevitably endless. Now, most of these things are not in themselves bad or sinful, in fact, most if not all of the things we do or pursue to achieve are all good things.
This song has always ministered to me. God steps in right at that moment when we really want a need met. All He’ s asking is ‘what’s that you have in your hands?’. Once you release it, just get ready for a floodgate of increase and abundance. Be blessed!
Our lives are full of needs that we want God to meet. These needs could be healing for ourselves or a loved one, it could even be school admission for ourselves or our kids or it may be that your present need is to meet the ‘one’ so you can finally settle down to start a family. Others may have all the above but need money for the tuition fees, a new job to be able to support the family adequately or even a better accommodation to bring up the children in a more spacious place. The truth is that we all have needs and as our faces are different so also our needs are.
This song has always ministered to me and I hope it does the same to you. God is not a dictator waiting somewhere for you to fail or make a mistake so that He can pour out fire and brimstone on you or punish you severely. No, He is a loving Father who delights in His children, who assists you when you fall to get back up again, who cheers you on when you make progress, a caring Father who helps you learn from your mistakes not punish you for them. He will always be there if no-one else does.
God is indeed a Father! Let Him father you.
