Do you struggle to see God as your loving Father? Do you think He is good, loving and has a good plan for everyone except you? This is a spiritual hurdle that is becoming more common as more children are growing up not knowing a good and loving earthly father.

Abba! Father! | A Paige From Our Book

If you are among those who struggle to find your identity as a beloved child of the Heavenly Father, I pray that you can find encouragement from the unwavering truth of the Word of God.
“For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God.” – Rom. 8:14

“In love, he predestined us for adoption as sons through Jesus Christ,
according to the purpose of HIS will. . .” – Eph. 1:4b-5

“For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!” – Rom. 8:15

If you have been predestined to adoption by God, He also wants you to feel and experience His love. Maybe you are running out of fear of being disappointed by God because of your history with an earthly father. Know that your Heavenly Father will pursue you. His love will not let you go. Just like that father of the prodigal son, He is waiting to embrace you with arms wide open.

Pray and confess your unbelief and then ask the Spirit to give you faith to trust that God is who He says He is and that you are now who He says you are {because you are in HIM}. Ask the Spirit to grant grace for you to feel and experience the truth of God’s love.

“Because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit
who has been given to us.” – Rom. 5:5


I hope that this has served to encourage you. I would love for you to share this with those in your life who may be struggling, that they too may be encouraged.
