The Father’s Anticipation (Joel Osteen)

“For to us a Child   is born, to us a Son is given; and the government shall be upon His shoulder,   and His name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting   Father [of Eternity], Prince of Peace”
(Isaiah 9:6, AMP)
TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria
When you accept Jesus as your   Lord and Savior, not only is your eternity secure, but you become a child of   the Most High God. You instantly have an Everlasting Father! Think about that   word everlasting. It means that before the beginning of time, the Father was   there. He was waiting for you to accept Him and become a child of His.

I can only imagine that He   was excited and anticipating that day just like a father would anticipate the   birth of his child in the natural. I can imagine that each day God would think,   “Is it today?” I don’t know what your experience has been with your earthly   father, but God is a good and perfect Father. He loves you with an   everlasting love. He loves everything about you so much that He notices when   a single hair falls from your head. He accepts you just the way you are, and   He loves you enough to guide you and work His character in you. And, He will   be your Father from now until eternity! He will never leave you nor forsake   you! Thank Him today for being your Everlasting Father!

Everlasting Father,   thank You for loving me today and for always being with me. Help me to   understand Your love more so that I may know You better. Let Your love flow   through me so that others may see Your goodness and come to know You as their   Father also in Jesus’ name. Amen.
— Joel &   Victoria Osteen
