Our Father’s Acceptance
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain. Psalm 139:6
Our relationship with God is solidly intact because of the expression and unique awareness of the Father’s acceptance and affirmation of us, independent of our exploits.
We haven’t done anything to deserve this and boom!—a nuclear-sized expression of love on the part of the Father is expressed toward his children. With this type of love pulsating from our Father toward us, we can afford to emotionally and relationally live for an audience of One and the will of One. We do not need the approval or acceptance of men. This makes us fearless in our focus and pursuit of the Father’s priorities for our time on earth.
We can do nothing in ourselves; we can do only what we see our Father doing, because whatever the Father does it is done through our hands as we fully trust his love for us.
This is a picture of mutual cooperation, the sharing of intimate knowledge, relationship, and love. There is dependence on knowledge of the Father that we posses from the Holy Spirit who guides his own expression through us. We do not need to check out with religious leaders, modern thinkers. We own the Father’s heart. God’s will has plainly been revealed to us. Our actions are purely focused on him and not on our own inadequacies or needs.
Father, thank you for your perfect knowledge that you are revealing to me through your Holy Spirit.
