When I came to know HIM in May of 1985, it was as my JUDGE. I learned first back then what it meant to Fear the Lord. I felt alone!
I realized I have a friend, who has walked in front of me… leading me. Who has walked next to me…supporting me and sometimes carrying me when I am tired. Who has walked behind me… protecting me. But most of all, HE lives inside of me…I am never alone.
I have studied HIS names as all of you have through the years. HE is Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Prince of Peace, Eternal Father, Lord, Savior, Jesus the Son of God…Y’shua Hamachiach –Jesus the Messiah of Israel and the world. Jesus who’s precious name means SALVATION.
Yes, He is all of that and more. But when I get quiet before HIM and ponder HIS words to us in the Scriptures I am humbled by the one recurring theme that I rarely acknowledge or understand the depths of.
That is, that HE is a FATHER and we, you and I are HIS children. And HE loves each one of us so very much…that HE says we can call HIM Abba…Daddy.
I have a letter that I found many years ago on
The letter is a Love Letter to you. ALL the words are taken from the Scriptures, so in essence this is a letter from your ABBA / Daddy, a personal letter just for you. Listen to the words that HE has spoken to each of HIS Born-Again Children. You need to know that you are HIS child and that HE loves you, so very much.
You may not know me, but I know everything about you
I know when you sit down and when you rise up
I am familiar with all of your ways
Even the very hairs on your head are numbered
For you were made in my image
In me you live and move and have your being
For you are my offspring
I knew you even before you were conceived
I chose you when I planned creation
You were not a mistake, for all your days are written in my book
I determined the exact time of your birth and where you would live
You are fearfully and wonderfully made
I knit you together in your mother’s womb
And brought you forth on the day you were born
I have been misrepresented by those who do not know me
I am not distant and angry, but am the complete expression of love
And it is my desire to lavish my love on you
Simply because you are my child and I am your Father
I offer you more than your earthly Father ever could
For I am the perfect Father
Every good gift that you receive comes from my hand
For I am your provider and I meet all your needs
My plan for your future has always been filled with hope
Because I love you with an everlasting love
My thoughts toward you are countless as the sand on the seashore
And I rejoice over you with singing
I will never stop doing good to you
For you are my treasured possession
I desire to establish you with all of my heart and all of my soul
And I want to show you great and marvelous things
If you seek me with all your heart, you will find me
Delight in me and I will give you the desires of your heart
For it is I who gave you those desires
I am able to do more for you than you could possibly imagine
For I am your greatest encourager
I am also the Father who comforts you in all your troubles
When you are brokenhearted I am close to you
As a shepherd carries a lamb, I have carried you close to my heart
One day I will wipe away every tear from your eyes
And I’ll take away all the pain you have suffered on this earth
I am you Father, and I love you even as I love my son, Jesus
For in Jesus, my love for you is revealed
He is the exact representation of my being
He came to demonstrate that I am for you not against you
And to tell you that I am not counting your sins
Jesus died so that you and I could be reconciled
His death was the ultimate expression of my love for you
I gave up everything I loved that I might gain your love
If you receive the gift of my son Jesus, you receive me
And nothing will ever separate you from my love again
Come home and I’ll throw the biggest party heaven has ever seen
I have always been Father and will always be Father
My question is…..Will you be my child?
I am waiting for you…..
Love, Your Dad.
