9. He Will Never Withdraw His Love
Slide 5 of 5
We live in a world in which people come and go. Feelings change. Promises are broken. Divorce happens.
And yet, God tells us most assuredly in His Word that His love is unlike anything we’ve experienced on this earth. Not only will He never leave us, but He promises, regardless of our actions or circumstances, that His love is here to stay.
In Jeremiah 31:3 God pledged His love for those who follow His Son when He said, “I have loved you with an everlasting love; Therefore I have drawn you out with kindness” (NASB). And in Romans 8:38-39 He makes sure we know that nothing we--or anyone else--could do will ever separate us from His enduring love.
That is the love of a Daddy for His daughter. And that is a love that can be yours, too.
10. He Has Secured My Future
Some people fret about what kind of an inheritance their family might leave them. Yet, I never have to worry about that. My future and my inheritance are all about Whose child I am, eternally.
Psalm 16 assures me that my Heavenly Father will provide for me throughout this lifetime and in the one to come when it says, “Lord, you alone are my portion and my cup; you make my lot secure. The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; surely I have a delightful inheritance” (verses 5-6).
Ephesians 1:3-14 gives me just a glimpse of the inheritance I have now in Christ Jesus, not just one day future when I’ll live in His presence. He has not only “blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ” (verse 3) but also extends those blessings to our lives on earth as we walk in His will.
I never have to shake my head and say “It’s all who you know” when it comes to getting the call, or obtaining the job, or securing that promotion. Because my Heavenly Daddy is God, I know the One who can open any door, secure any deal, break down any wall, and divide any sea. He’s the best agent, boss or bodyguard I could ever have.
He gives His daughters a future and a hope (Jeremiah 29:11) and calls them His beloved. If you ever start to feel badly about the family you were born into, or the dysfunction in which you were raised, you have a new lineage in Christ Jesus and that makes you a daughter of the best Daddy there is.
