Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name. You are the Lord of the Spirits and I am grateful to know You, God. Thank You for creating my body and my spirit. It was in my mother’s womb that You fashioned me into the person I would become today. You knew how I would turn out and blessed me even before I was born. Thank You, Lord, for seeing past the pitfalls in my life to where I am today. Surely, You have blessed Your children. It is unfortunate that people decide to not know or follow You. They love their own lives so much, instead of being chastened by You, my Father. It is so terrible that people are justifying their sins day in and day out, while denying their own conscience that says what they are doing is wrong. You do speak to each person on earth, throughout our lives, but only a few people respond favorably to You. This is sad but true. How is it that people can honor their earthly Father and not honor You, who is the Father of the heavens and earth? Our earthly father is a gift from Your hands, but I see You, my Father, and feel blessed to be Your son. Lead me, Lord. Help me do what is right in Your sight. Rebuke me if I am doing anything wrong. I love You, God. I give You glory. Amen.
Numbers 27:16,17 (KJV)
16 Let the Lord, the God of the spirits of all flesh, set a man over the congregation,
17 Which may go out before them, and which may go in before them, and which may lead them out, and which may bring them in; that the congregation of the Lord be not as sheep which have no shepherd.
We all have a Father in heaven. However, He does not count us all as His children. This comes through faith in Jesus.
