“And when He had removed him, He raised up for them David as king, to whom also He gave testimony and said, ‘I have found David the [son] of Jesse, a man after My [own] heart, who will do all My will.’” (Acts 13:22 NKJV)
Without even trying many of us desire to be just like our earthly dads. My desire is to follow in my heavenly Father’s footsteps. I want the LORD to say, “I have found Tammy the daughter of Dewey (and Marie), a woman after My heart.” Father God:
I want a heart like You.
I want to love like You.
I want to live like You.
I want to give like You.
I want to forgive like You.
I want to be humble like You.
I want be merciful like You.
I want to be gracious like You.
I want to serve like You.
I want to be a warrior like You.
I want to fight like you.
I want to conquer like You.
I want to be strong like You.
I want to be courageous like You.
I want to brave like You.
I want to stand immovable like You.
I want to endure like You.
I want to be just like my Daddy.
I enCOURAGE you to be a child after our Father’s heart. Do His will and be found like David having a heart just like our Daddy. How do you know God’s will? Read His word. He tells us over and over what His will is and how to be just like Him, a loving, merciful, gracious Father.
Ask Him for help. “Father God, teach me to be just like You? P.S… One day will You let me help You paint the sky or will it even matter when I am standing in Your presence?”
“YOD. Your hands have made me and fashioned me; Give me understanding, that I may learn Your commandments.” – Psalm 119:73 NKJV
