Kiss the Face of God

When a tiny child wants to show you his love, sometimes he will put his forehead on your forehead, his nose against yours, look you straight in the eyes and give you sugary slobbers right on the lips. Getting a little older, being thankful or excited about something, the child will quickly and sweetly plant a kiss on your cheek. Growing even more and having a deep rooted love, the kiss comes on your forehead or even on top of the head, saying I love and cherish you. 

As the Lord's child, we can do the same to our Father.  When our heart tells His heart we love Him, we are kissing His face.  Being thankful shows our affection towards Him and touches His heart. When we have conversations with our Father, spend time with Him, give Him our love and undivided attention, we are kissing His face. Studying His Word and putting Jesus first brings Him delight as does praising, worshiping and praying.  Recognizing the fact that He is who He is pleases our Father.  Just being His child brings Him joy. The Lord rejoices over His children.

~You don't have to settle for touching My garment, you have already touched My heart~

Go ahead, kiss the face of God

We are Yours Father, Let Us Know Your Love

When I think of all of this, all You do and have done for me and my loved ones Lord, I fall to my knees and bow my heart, and pray to You Father, Creator of everything in heaven and earth. We are all Yours, we are all Your children. Our heritage is from You Father, we get our true name from You.  

I pray that from Your glorious, unlimited resources You empower us with inner strength through Your Holy Spirit. Let Christ make His home within our heart as we trust Him. May our faith increase daily. I pray our roots grow deep down into Your love and keep us strong Lord. Father be our Rock and foundation. Go before us and guide us. Give us power to understand, as all Your children should - how wide, how long, how high, and how deep Your love is for us. Remind us who You are Father and who we are in You; we are Your chosen generation and royal priesthood. We are a holy nation and Your own special possession. We can show forth Your glorious and wonderful deeds; we can display Your goodness and virtues and perfections. You alone are the One who called us out of the darkness and into the marvelous Light. You love us so much that You sent Your Son to die for us- to set us free from sin and destruction. 

May we experience the superior love of Christ, though it is far too great to understand fully. Your love is so vast that it is beyond our knowledge and comprehension but I know we will be made complete by Your love with all the fullness of life and power that comes from You Lord.   

In the name of Jesus
