From His Heart to Yours!
You may not know me, but I know everything about you. Psalm 139:1 "O Lord, You have examined my heart and know everything about me."
I know when you sit down and when you rise up. Psalm 139:2 "You know when I sit down and stand up. You know my every thought when far away."
I am familiar with all your ways. Psalm 139:3 "You chart the path ahead of me and tell me where to stop and rest. Every moment You know where I am."
Even the very hairs on your head are numbered. Matthew 10:29-31 "Not even a sparrow, worth only half a penny, can fall to the ground without your Father knowing it. And the very hairs on your head are all numbered."
For you were made in My image. Genesis 1:27 "So God created people in His own image; God patterned them after Himself; male and female He created them."
In Me you live and move and have your being. Acts 17:28 "For in Him we live and move and exist."
For you are My offspring. Acts 17:28 As one of your own poets says, "We are His offspring."
I knew you even before you were conceived. Jeremiah 1:4-5 "The Lord gave me a message. He said "I knew you before I formed you in your mother's womb. Before you were born I set you apart and appointed you as My spokesman to the world."
I chose you when I planned creation. Ephesians 1:11-12 "Furthermore, because of Christ, we have received an inheritance from God, for He chose us from the beginning and all things happen just as He decided long ago. God's purpose was that we who were the first to trust in Christ should praise our glorious God."
You were not a mistake, for all your days are written in My book. Psalm 139:15-16 "You watched me as I was formed in utter seclusion, as I was woven together in the dark of the womb. You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in Your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed."
I determined the exact time of your birth and where you would live. Acts 17:26 "From one man He created all the nations through the whole earth. He decided beforehand which should rise and fall, and He determined their boundaries."
You are fearfully and wonderfully made. Psalm 139:14 "Thank You for making me so wonderfully complex. Your workmanship is marvelous - and how well I know it."
I knit you together in your mother's womb. Psalm 139:13 "You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my other's womb."
And brought you forth on the day you were born. Psalm 71:6 "Yes, You have been with me from birth; from my mother's womb You have cared for me. No wonder I am always praising You."
have been misrepresented by those who don't know Me. John 8:41-44 "No, you are obeying your real father when you act that way. They replied, "We were not born out of wedlock! Our true Father is God Himself. Jesus told them, "If God were your Father, you would love Me, because I have come to you from God. I am not here on My own, but He sent me. Why can't you understand what I am saying? It is because you are unable to do so! For you are children of your father the Devil, and you love to do the evil things he does. He was a murderer from the beginning and has always hated the truth. There is no truth in him. When he lies, it is consistent with his character for he is a liar and the father of lies."
I am not distant and angry, but am the complete expression of love. 1 John 4:16 "We know how much God loves us, and we have put our trust in Him. God is love, and all who live in love live in God, and God lives in them."
And it is My desire to lavish My love on you.1 John 3:1 "See how much our heavenly Father loves us, for He allows us to be called His children, and we really are! But the people who belong to this world don't know God, so they don't understand that we are His children."
Simply because you are My child and I am your Father. 1 John 3:1 "See how much our heavenly Father loves us, for He allows us to be called His children, and we really are! But the people who belong to this world don't know God, so they don't understand that we are His children."
I offer you more than your earthly father ever could. Matthew 7:11 "If you sinful people know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give good gifts to those who ask Him."
For I am the perfect father. Matthew 5:48 "But you are to be perfect, even as your Father in heaven is perfect."
Every good gift that you receive comes from My hand. James 1:17 "Whatever is good and perfect comes to us from God above, Who created all heaven's lights. Unlike them, He never changes or casts shifting shadows.
For I am your provider and I meet all your needs. Matthew 6:31-33 "So don't worry about having enough food or drink or clothing. Why be like the pagans who are so deeply concerned about these things? Your heavenly Father already knows all your needs. And He will give you all you need from day to day if you live for Him and make the Kingdom of God your primary concern."
My plan for your future has always been filled with hope. Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord. They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope."
Because I love you with an everlasting love. Jeremiah 31:3 "Long ago the Lord said to Israel: "I have loved you My people, with an everlasting love. With unfailing love I have drawn you to Myself."
My thoughts toward you are as countless as the sand on the seashore. Psalms 139:17-18 "How precious are Your thoughts about me, O God. They are innumerable! I can't even count them: they outnumber the grains of sand! And when I wake up in the morning, You are still with me!"
And I rejoice over you with singing. Zephaniah 3:17 "For the Lord your God has arrived to live among you. He is a mighty savior. He will rejoice over you with great gladness. With His love, He will calm all your fears. He will exult over you by singing a happy song.
"I will never stop doing good to you. Jeremiah 32:40 "And I will make an everlasting covenant with them, promising not to stop doing good for them. I will put a desire in their hearts to worship Me forever, for their own good and for the good of all their descendants."
For you are My treasured possession. Exodus 19:5 Now if you obey me and keep My covenant, you will be My own special treasure from among all the nations of the earth; for all the earth belongs to Me."
I desire to establish you with all My heart and all My soul. Jeremiah 32:41 "And I will rejoice in doing good to them and will faithfully and wholeheartedly replant them in this land."
And I want to show you great and marvelous things. Jeremiah 33:3 "Ask Me and I will tell you some remarkable secrets about what is going to happen here."
If you seek Me with all your heart, you will find Me. Deuteronomy 4:29 "From there you will search again for the Lord your God. And if you search for Him with all your heart and soul, you will find Him."
Delight in Me and I will give you the desires of your heart. Psalm 37:4 "Take delight in the Lord, and He will give you your heart's desire."
For it is I who gave you those desires. Philippians 2:13 "For God is working in you, giving you the desire to obey Him and the power to do what pleases Him."
I am able to do more for you than you could possibly imagine. Ephesians 3:20 "Now glory be to God! By His mighty power at work within us, He is able to accomplish infinitely more than we would ever dare to ask or hope."
For I am your greatest encourager.2 Thess 2:16-17 "May our Lord Jesus Christ and God our Father, who loved us and in His special favor gave us everlasting comfort and good hope, comfort your hearts and give you strength in every good thing you do and say."
I am also the Father who comforts you in all your troubles. 2 Corinthians 1:3-4 "All praise to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. He is the source of every mercy and the God who comforts us. He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When others are troubled we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us."
When you are brokenhearted, I am close to you. Psalm 34:18 "The Lord is close to the brokenhearted; He rescues them from all their troubles."
As a shepherd carries a lamb, I have carried you close to my heart. Isaiah 40:11 "He will feed his flock like a shepherd. He will carry the lambs in His arms, holding them close to his heart. He will gently lead the mother sheep with their young."
One day I will wipe away every tear from your eyes. Revelation 21:3-4 "I heard a loud shout from the throne, saying "Lord, the home of God is now among His people! He will live with them, and they will be His people. God Himself will be with them. He will remove all of their sorrows, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. For the old world and its evils are gone forever!"
And I'll take away all the pain you have suffered on this earth. Revelation 21:3-4 "I heard a loud shout from the throne, saying "Lord, the home of God is now among His people! He will live with them, and they will be His people. God Himself will be with them. He will remove all of their sorrows, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. For the old world and its evils are gone forever!"
I am your Father, and I love you even as I love My son, Jesus. John 17:23 "I in them and you in Me, all being perfected into one. Then the world will know that You sent Me and will understand that You love them as much as You love Me."
For in Jesus, My love for you is revealed. John 17:26 "And I have revealed You to them and will keep on revealing You. I will do this so that Your love for Me may be in them and I in them."
He is the exact representation of My being. Hebrews 1:3 "The Son reflects God's own glory, and everything about Him represents God exactly. He sustains the universe by the mighty power of His command. After He died to cleanse us from the stain of sin, He sat down in the place of honor at the right hand of the majestic God of heaven."
He came to demonstrate that I am for you, not against you. Romans 8:31 "What can we say about such wonderful things as these? If God is for us, who can ever be against us?"
And to tell you that I am not counting your sins. 2 Corinthians 5:18-19 "All this newness of life is from God, who brought us back to Himself through what Christ did. And God has given us the task of reconciling people to Him. For God was in Christ, reconciling the world to Himself, no longer counting people's sins against them. This is the wonderful message He has given us to tell others."
Jesus died so that you and I could be reconciled. 2 Cor. 5:18-19 "All this newness of life is from God, who brought us back to Himself through what Christ did. And God has given us the task of reconciling people to Him. For God was in Christ, reconciling the world to Himself, no longer counting people's sins against them. This is the wonderful message He has given us to tell others."
His death was the ultimate expression of My love for you. 1 John 4:10 "This is real love. It is not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins."
I gave up everything I loved that I might gain your love. Romans 8:31-32 " "What can we say about such wonderful things as these? If God is for us, who can ever be against us? Since God did not spare even His own Son but gave Him up for us all, won't God, who gave us Christ, also give us everything else?"
When you receive the gift of My son Jesus, you receive Me. 1 John 2:23 "Anyone who denies the Son doesn't have the Father either. But anyone who confesses the Son has the Father also"
And nothing will ever separate you from My love again. Rom 8:38-39 "And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from His love. Death can't & life can't. The angels can't & the demons can't. Our fears for today, our worries about tomorrow, & even the powers of hell can't keep God's love away."
When you came home He threw the biggest party heaven has ever seen. Luke 15:7 "In the same way, heaven will be happier over one lost sinner who returns to God than over ninety-nine others who are righteous and haven't strayed away!"
I have always been Father, and will always be Father. Ephesians 3:14-15 "When I think of the wisdom and scope of God's plan, I fall to my knees and pray to the Father."
Remember what happened when you believed! John 1:12-13 "But to all who believed Him and accepted Him, He gave the right to become children of God. They are reborn! This is not a physical birth resulting from human passion or plan-this rebirth comes from God."
I am always waiting to hear from you. And I love being with you & I am in love with you! Ps. 27:8 My heart has heard You say, “Come and talk with Me and my heart responds, Lord, I am coming.”
