A couple of days ago I read an article on FB. It was about a physically challenged girl who went on to do some great accomplishments in the field of athletics and stunned her on-lookers by her mental strength and determination!!! What interested me more as always, is the comments section!!! While some people praised God for giving her the determination and the grace to help her go beyond her disabilities, most people hurled insults at God for being cruel. Quite obviously, being a Child of the King myself, I was enraged by the comments made about my Father in Heaven!!!
The reason being: In my 10 years of walk with the Lord, if there is one thing that I have understood about my Father it is this. The relationship with Jesus, is the most loving and the most genuine relationship one can ever have!!! It is next to impossible to understand the Father’s heart by being a stranger. You need to be a ‘child’, to understand the Father!!! I have had my share of joys and sorrows in life. Sometimes I have been soooo angry with God and sometimes I am just enthralled by His love and see myself totally undeserving of any goodness at all from Him!!! But that’s all a part of the relationship and I can assure you that the joy and the pain in my life has only made the relationship stronger!!!
Yesterday I had a random thought in the early morning hours…. I was visualising the sky rolling up and making way for the King of all kings to come down to the Earth to receive all His Children unto Himself!!! What a glorious day would that be!!!! Where would all the mockers hide??? What will become of all the scoffers then??? Trust me, that day, ain’t too far!!! It’s coming….. it’s coming…. sooner than we think… Are you prepared to meet thy Father??? Are your Children prepared to meet their Creator???
What a day that will be,
When my Jesus I shall see,
And I look upon His face,
The One who saved me by His grace;
When He takes me by the hand,
And leads me through the Promised Land,
What a day, glorious day that will be.
