A Father's Heart of Blessing - A Different Perspective - February 18

A Father's Heart of Blessing
by Berni Dymet

Gen. 26:24 And that very night the LORD appeared to him and said, "I am the God of your father Abraham; do not be afraid, for I am with you and will bless you and make your offspring numerous for my servant Abraham's sake."

I've been a dad for a good many years now. And looking back on it - I've not always done such a brilliant job of that. Sadly - we dads aren't perfect. 

But as imperfect as I am - there's one thing that's never, ever changed in my heart. I've always wanted to bless my children - to give, to see them do well. It's just something that happens in a father's heart I guess.

So many people wonder what God's like - but one of the biggest things we find out about Him - in fact Jesus tells us this - is that He's our father. And if yours truly - as imperfect as I am - wants to bless his kids, then how much more then does God our Father want to bless us. 

The more I get to know God, my Father - the more I discover that, He knows me better than I can ever know myself. And He knows how to bless me in ways that I could never imagine. That's why God is my Dad.
