Recently during my quiet time, I poured out my heart to God about a difficult situation. I was upset and stressed. After I asked Him to fix the situation, I said, “Father, I need your comfort.” Calling God “Father” took years to say considering my life experiences. However, I immediately experienced indescribable love and perfect peace after uttering those five words. I went to bed afterward. As I drifted off to sleep, I kept thinking, “Wow! His love! I’m in perfect peace!”
Someone once said, “Why are you surprised when God answers your prayers? You should be used to Him.” I replied, “How do you get used to God?” God always has a way of showing that He’s with me and that He’s in control, that still leaves me in awe, no matter how many times He answers my prayers. I am grateful for that. The Lord never promised life would be fair. But it is written that He promised to never leave us.
The Father’s Love is real. He is real.
