I remember going through a season when I really struggled to see an image of a loving God and father. My vision of God was distorted by the lenses of my past brokenness and pain. Instead of seeing a loving father who wanted to get close to me I saw a God who had loads of tasks for me to accomplished. Having a wrong view of God completely limits how we receive Gods love and how we build a relationship with God.
So often we see God in the mirror of our pass relationships. But God is not man, He is God a loving God. Not a God who doesn’t know what it is to feel pain, but a God who grieves and yearns to be with you and for you to dwell with Him. I mean how many people would truly die for you? Well He did, now that’s Love.
How do you view God?
Lord we pray that we see you in the right light. Not in a dysfunctional vision of broken relationships. Open our hearts and minds so that we can encounter your love, then have the Grace to respond back in love. In Jesus Name we pray.
Much love in Christ,
