God is not your biological father and He’s not like your biological father.
Growing up, I was always scared to ask my dad for what I wanted. Sometimes when needed. I was scared he would judge me. I was scared of the scrutiny. Sometimes the scrutiny even made me sad. Why couldn’t I just get what I wanted without questions? Why all the questions?
I developed a thick ‘Miss independent’ skin. I wouldn’t ask for what I wanted. I’d find my way around it.
As an adult, I understand now that there were those times our parents were under pressure or just broke. They couldn’t tell you as a child that they were broke. They’d just scrutinize and judge.
I adopted this same approach in my relationship with God. I brought my warped mentality into my prayer life. I wouldn’t ask God for things. I’d just pray the general prayers. I knew the Bible said ask and it shall be given to me. But how can I even ask. Won’t God ask me what I needed or wanted it for?
Until I understood that God is not my biological father. The Holy Spirit reminded me of that. He can never get broke. He can never be under pressure.
I then became comfortable to ask God for what I wanted.
I’m still learning. I’ve not harnessed my full potential in asking my Heavenly Father for certain things.
But I’m getting better.
If you’re reading this, I want to remind you, by instruction of the Holy Spirit that God is not your Biological Father.
Your father messed up his marriage to your mother? God is not your biological father. He will never mess up.
Your dad wasn’t always available, he was always absent? God is not your Biological Father. He never sleeps nor slumbers. He can never be absent.
Your father sexually abused you? God is not your biological father. He will never abuse you or exploit you.
Yes. I said it.
In closing, I need you to meditate on these verses:
Matthew 7:11 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?
Isaiah 49:15 Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee. 49:16 Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands; thy walls are continually before me.
Always remember, God is not your Biological Father.
