Thou Art Our Father!
“But now, O LORD, you are our Father; we are the clay, and You are our potter; and all we are the work of Your hand.” Isaiah 64:8
I read a story about a little boy who was trying to move a huge rock? He pulled and pushed, straining with all his might against this enormous rock. He even tried to move it with leverage from a board, but the rock would not budge.
His dad asked him, “Son, have you used all your resources?” The son answered, “Yes, Dad. I’ve tried everything, and I can’t make it move.” His father replied, “No, you haven’t. You haven’t asked me to help you yet.”
This should be the most desirable quality every believer should possess, calling unto the name of God first in any situation, either good or bad. We are the work of his hands; he owns us, even when the relationship was broken, Jesus came to reconcile us unto him, and we receive the adoption of sons.
“For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God. For you did not receive the Spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.” Rom 8:14-15
Therefore, as children, we should look unto him for help; we should cast all our care upon him, we need to give him our all in all. He owns us all, and we all are the work of his hand. Our heavenly father is always worried when we don’t go to him for help because any help outside of God comes with a ransom. Remember, Jesus has paid for that ransom with his life and blood, why not be a partaker of the spiritual blessings.
1. Father, forgive me for always trying to prove I know it all.
2. Now that I know about your loving-care, and give me the ability to always rely on you before taking any decision in Jesus’ name. Amen!
