The Trinity- Father God
Jesus came to be an example of me to the world. Jesus did everything out of love and respect for me. I am a king but not like the ones you have read about in history books. I do not rule out of fear and I do not govern over my people with a heavy hand. I never abuse my power or mismanage it. I can never be dethroned by any country or any man. The ones who really know me worship me out of love and respect, not out of obligation. I am not a god of harsh rules and regulations. Severe rules are only necessary when there is an attempt to contain power. I am not like many government leaders. I am not a dictator or a vicious ruler, and I am unlike anyone who has ever been in a position of authority. I use my power for good not for manipulation. The purpose of my power is for healing, deliverance, restoration, and reconciliation, and is not to control the minds and actions of others. I do not command respect or even honor. I desire for these to naturally flow out of a relationship with me. I do not place demands or expectations on people. That is a huge misconception and lie that some believe about me. Expectations can result in performance. Performance can lead to the feelings of disappointment and failure.
Many have portrayed me as a god who created impossible rules and has unachievable expectations. Who wrote these assumed expectations? The answer is not me. They came through a false interpretation by men. Who told some to be so judgmental and critical of the lost? I certainly did not. Why am I constantly represented as a god who has zero tolerance for sinners? I admit that I do not like sin, but it mostly because of the pain it causes the sinner. I love everyone, and my love covers a multitude of sin. I can see past any indiscretion because my love is stronger. I do not wish to allow anything to get in the way of my desire for relationship with my children.
You read the bible through your own opinions of me. Many have seen me as a cold, uncaring, and annoyed father. Why would they interpret scripture any other way? You do not understand how much I love my children. If you did than you would observe the bible in an entirely different way. Many have judged me as cruel, distant, and angry. That is why I appear that way in the bible to them. Your experiences with your earthly father can often serve to taint your view of me. How you perceive the way your earthly father treated you is the way you assume I will. So many question whether or not their parents really loved them, and now that question is projected onto me.
I am not distant and aloof. I do listen and pay attention to what you are saying and doing. I am never distracted, preoccupied or too busy to spend time with you. I have been with you every second of your life.
I am not difficult to find. You can discover me in a plethora of ways including; music, art, science, language, mathematics, nature, and even through people. I am always speaking because I greatly desire to connect with my children. I am searching hearts and looking for places where my love can live and flourish. I am observing ones who will make room for me in their lives, and for those are willing to walk with me. Life on earth is meant to be a beautiful journey- a dance with me leading. So many of my children try to lead the dance of life when they do not even know the steps. I am always here and am a perfect father, friend, and companion. Do not be afraid, for I will never harm you. My desire is that you walk in wholeness in your body, mind, and soul.
I have so much in store for those who love me. I am often limited by the box people place me in. They put certain parameters around what they think I am capable of. Some say I do not or cannot heal. Others say that certain situations are out of my jurisdiction or even above my ability. If I created the heavens and the earth what am I NOT capable of? Is there anything too difficult or challenging for me? Is there anything that I am NOT capable of? There is nothing that I cannot do if allowed. I give people free will. I do not push myself into peoples’ lives or force anyone to believe in me.
Pain has often created difficulty in hearing my voice. I have been speaking to you your whole life, but you did not always listen. Even those moments were not wasted. I began poking holes in your wall of indifference. I am continually chiseling away at the barricades around your heart. There is no fence or hedge too high for my love to reach you. My love can climb any mountain and bring down any fortress. My presence can melt any stronghold and unlock any prison. Allow me to be your place of refuge, and let me bring you strength. Give up your need to control and judge. Let go of the desire to understand and just accept me by faith. This process will be so much easier for you if you just let go and let me take the wheel. You do not have to be afraid because I am always with you.
I never behave inappropriately and therefore have no need to apologize. There is no guilt or shame in me. I never behave out of insecurity or fear. Everything that I do is perfect, because I make no mistakes. There is nothing evil, merciless, or cruel in my nature. I am incapable of prejudice. I do not hate any group of people regardless of their personal choices. I may not like the decisions that are being made by my children, but my love towards them does not change. My job is not to bring guilt and condemnation, but to allow my love to cause repentance. My love does not attack but it also does not remove consequences for ones choices. Without the pain of consequences how can one learn to make different decisions? I created the human body to seek to avoid pain. If you are putting yourself in a situation that is causing pain, the body will want to escape. The problem is that many people attempt to create their own escape instead of coming to me for better solutions. I can forgive and heal hurts but cannot always remove the results of harmful decisions.
The goal is for you become solely dependent upon me and be so close that you will not make harmful decisions. My spirit will guide you and prick your heart when you are about to make a wrong turn. I do not desire for you to become a robot and only move and think under my command. I want you near me so that I can protect you from the evil one. I am not power-hungry. I have all the power that I will ever need. My desire is not to control or manipulate you. I do not wish to create an army to destroy the world. I want a family that will seek to save it.
I am not a human and I do not lie. The promises I have made to you I will fulfill in my timing. Just because you do not always perceive my faithfulness does not prove that I unfaithful. Just because you do not always trust me does not verify that I am untrustworthy. Just because you see sometimes your circumstances as dire does not confirm that will be the final outcome. My love for you is not based on how you feel or behave. It is not contingent upon your trust in me. I have established a covenant with you and that will never be broken. I will uphold all of my vows.
I allow difficulties in your life to shake you now so that later in your life you will not be shaken. Your hope will be so grounded in me that nothing will move you. There is a purpose in everything that I do. I am very calculated and deliberate. I never waste my actions. Even though it does not always feel like it right now, good things are taking place on your behalf. You will be shocked and amazed at the plans that I have for you. I know that your life often feels very overwhelming and it seems like your hope is being pulled away at times, but hold onto me and you will always be safe. Arrangements and preparations are currently being made. I hold the blueprints to your new house and it will be more beautiful than before. You will not recognize yourself when I am finished. Be excited about your future because it is very bright. Wait with great expectation and dream big. Do not allow despair to engulf you. Keep hope alive because I am doing a new thing in you. The river of my presence is flooding your landscape and forever changing the topography of your land. You will never be the same. With each modification you are becoming more like my son.
This is your season of transformation. A revolution is coming to your household. Amendments are being added to your constitution. Truth will replace lies and fear will be exchanged with love. Light will conquer all darkness and Peace will rule and reign in your land. I am excited for the changes that are taking place in you. I am proud of your determination and perseverance. Anticipate great things because that it what I have planned for you. Your weeping my last for a night but great joy will come in the morning. A season of un-imaginable joy is right around the corner.
Let me be your place of comfort. Hide under the shadow of my wings and I will cover you with my soft and nurturing feathers. I am all sufficient and am all that you need. Allow me to wake up your dreams that lay dormant and give you new ones. This season has not been about punishing you but about saving you. Be optimistic because I am rescuing you. Release all of your expectations and disappointments and feel my hope begin to rise in you again.
It does not matter what the world thinks or says about you. All that matters is what I think. I say that you are beautiful, generous, loving, and kind. You are intelligent, creative, inventive, and resourceful. You are original and there is no one like you. I love you more than you could possibly ever imagine. I am right here with you and will be for all of eternity. Do not worry about your life. I am in control and promise to take care of you. Have no expectation of how I will save you. My plan may look different than you imagine, but realize it all has a purpose. In the end all that really matters is me!
Every one of my children is unique as is their life story. Nothing good is accomplished by comparing yourself to others. I am always faithful, because it is part of my nature. I am a good father who longs to give wonderful gifts to his children. These gifts are not based on merit they are based on my great desire to give. My presents have no strings attached, and they are freely donated. I never take them away regardless of how my children behave. I never punish by removing these gifts. Even if my offspring turns away from me, these gifts go with them. My love is not conditionally based, and it is never removed. My love is in the DNA of all of my children. Allow my truth to set you free. I am walking with you and cheering you on during your life journey. Be confident in the one who loves you more than life itself. Be assured that I will never leave you and will always take care of you.
