If you then, being evil,
What is God like? We think of Him in lots of wrong ways. I know I do! Let’s see… what are some of the wrong ways I think of God?
As Someone who will give me whatever I want. Wrong!
As Someone who is evil and wishes to harm me. Wrong!
As Someone totally uninterested in my life. Wrong!
What is God like? The above verse says He is a Father who is interested in giving good gifts to His children. Not whatever I ask when it is selfish, but whatever I ask when it is for the kingdom and for His glory. (In other places in the Bible there are guidelines for what to ask God.) This reminded me of yesterday’s reading in Matthew 6. Notice the references to God as Father!
Look at the birds of the air,
This comforts and encourages me today. God is my Father. He knows what I need. He cares for me. He gives good gifts. How I thank Him!
More than anything I would like to encourage you in your walk with God!
