God the Father is the first person of the Trinity, which also includes his Son, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit. You knew that right?

Christians believe there is one God who exists in three Persons. This mystery of the faith cannot be understood by the human mind but is a key doctrine of Christianity. While the word Trinity does not appear in the Bible, several episodes include the simultaneous appearance of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, such as the baptism of Jesus by John the Baptist (Matthew 3:16-17).

We find many names for God in the Bible. Jesus urged us to think of God as our loving father and went a step further by calling him Abba, an Aramaic word roughly translated as “Daddy,” to show us how intimate our relationship with him is.

God the Father is the perfect example for all earthly fathers. He is holy, just and fair, but his most outstanding quality is love

Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. (1 John 4:8, NIV)

Do you have an intimate relationship with Father God? The Father designed us with the emotional and spiritual capacity to have a loving, personal relationship with Him.

King David knew how to have an intimate relationship with theimage God. Although he was far from perfect, David had learned that only the Father’s love could satisfy his heart’s deepest longings (Ps. 63:3). The king passionately sought God through prayer, repentance, and obedience. From his example, you and I can learn how to enjoy closeness with the Father.

May you this week relearn what it means to have a relationship with Father God. May you be still, know that He is God, and hear from Him this week. May you have a vision of How Father God sees you. Will you share your story?

My Father God

Father God
I’ve seen you before
In your heavenly armour
Standing guard in the doorway
Of my heart as I
Carelessly left it wide open

Father God
I feel your immovable presence
As you block those who would
Seek to rob, kill and destroy
They seek but will not find
As you stride forward and stand
On the bridge of certain doom
For they shall not pass

Father God
Show me your face
That I might see the One
Who protects and defends
My heart – my good heart
I long to see your glory
Like Moses did

Father God
Behind the sealed door of my heart
In your room high in the castle
While you lay down your sword and
Take off your steel plated helmet
I remove my shoes
As I am on holy ground

Father God
You replace your helmet with an old gold crown
And we sit at your table
Heart to heart, soul to soul
A banquet laid before us – just us

Father God
You my great Father, I your true Son
And in that exact moment our eyes meet
In your presence I Am
Transformed in the blink of Your eye
Through a Sacred Exchange
Into the Beautiful Mystery
