SylviaFather God has promised that He will never leave you or forsake you. He has not abandoned you. His perfect love casts out all fear. Rest in His love. Receive from your heavenly Father all the father's blessing that you craved from your earthly father.

Be blessed with life-changing encounters with the Father heart of God. Be blessed to receive His perfect healing that can make you whole. Allow Him to bring healing, recovery, and restoration of your broken trust. Your Father's best healing work restores your heart and soul according to His design that He had for you before He laid the foundations of the world. As you drink in your Father's love, He will re-innocence you, restoring your childlike faith and trust.

Respond this way:

God, I choose to trust you today. I choose to believe Your heart toward me is kind, good, loving, approachable, and accepting. I choose to bind my will to Your will. I bind my mind to the mind of Christ. I bind my emotions to the Holy Spirit for healing and alignment.

Thank You for wanting to be my Father, not my taskmaster or my boss. You are indeed loving Master, Sovereign, Judge, King, and so much more in Your universe. How majestic is Your name in all the earth (Psa 8). I am in awe of all You are, but You are first of all my "Abba, Papa."

Thank You that You created me to be loved as Your child and for me to love You. It's that simple. You like me and You like having me around. Thank You that the greatest blessing is nearness to You, and You want me near You. Thank You for inviting me to draw near to You so that I may experience joy and peace in Your presence. Thank You for Your promise to hold me in Your everlasting loving arms.

I accept Your invitation to come closer to Your Father heart.
