Soulful Sunday - "Lies Women Believe" - About God part 3


Soulful Sunday - "Lies Woman Believe" by Nancy Leigh DeMoss
About God - part 3
"God is just like my father"

As women, our view of God is highly influenced by our fathers.  The way we see God can be positively or negatively shaped by them.

"If you have been wounded by a father - or another man you trusted - you may find it difficult to trust God.  You may even be afraid of Him or angry with Him.  You must believe me when I tell you that God is not like any man you have ever known.  The wisest, kindest, earthly father is but a pale reflection of our heavenly Father.  The God of the Bible is infinitely more wonderful and pure and loving that even the most wonderful father.  That is why it is so important that we not allow our view of God to be determined by other men, for at their very best they are flawed representations of God."

To really know what God is like you need to look in His Word.  

"The God of the Bible is a compassionate, tender, merciful Father.  That doesn't mean He givcesus everything we want - no wise father would give his children everything they want.  It doesn't mean we can always understand His decisions - He is far too great for that.    It doesn't mean He never allows us to suffer pain - in fact, at times, He actually inflicts pain and hardship upon us.  Why?  Because He loves us.  Because He cares about us.  Because He is committed to us.  Hebrews tells us, "God disciplines us fro our good, that we may share in his holiness" Hebrews (12:10)

Hannah Whitall Smith writes:
"Discomfort and unrest are impossible to souls who come to know that God is their Father.
...What a good earthly father would not do, God who is our Father would not do either; and what a good father ought to do, God who is our Father is absolutely sure to do.  
Christ has declared to us the name of the Father in order that we may discover that the Father loves us as He loves His Son.  If we believed this, could we ever have an anxious or rebellious thought again?  Would we not believe in every conceivable circumstance that the divine Father would care for us in the best possible way and meet our ever need ?"


 Even though you may know that God love you, you probably don't always feel that He does.  What are some of the things that can cause you to feel that no one really loves or cares about you?

Read Paul's prayer in Ephesians 3:14-19.  Personalize this prayer and pray it for yourself or for someone you know who has difficulty accepting the love of God:
"For this reason I  bow my knees before the Father,
 from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name,
 that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in the inner man,
 so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; and that you, being rooted and grounded in love,
 may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth,
 and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled up to all the fullness of God."

I sometimes have a hard time. I know God is my Father, but why would he inflict me with such pain? Why would he give me so many problems when I'm alread frail? I don't understand, but God does, so I have to lean on him when the pain gets bad.

So Far This Week:

I have run across many people who are having a hard time commenting or finding where they are to comment on the posts. They want to share their prayer requests or music videos and can't. I am hoping this will be easier. From now on, I will add the new day and the new day's topic to the home page post. Just click on the word "HERE" and it will take you to the post with the comment box already up and you will be able to see comments other people have shared. I am praying this will be easier for everyone. If not, we can go back to the old way.
