My Father Loves Me

My Father…

Loves me – John 3:16
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

Cares for me – Matthew 6:26
“Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?”

Forgives me – Psalm 103:12
“as far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us.”

Is compassionate – Psalm 103:4-5
“who redeems your life from the pit
and crowns you with love and compassion,
who satisfies your desires with good things
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.”

Is giving – Romans 8:32
“He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?”

Is understanding – Psalm 139:1-2
“You have searched me, Lord, and you know me.
You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar.

Is accepting – Psalm 139:1-6
“You have searched me, Lord, and you know me.
You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar.
You discern my going out and my lying down;you are familiar with all my ways.
Before a word is on my tongue you, Lord, know it completely.
You hem me in behind and before, and you lay your hand upon me.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain.”

Satisfies – Psalm 107:9
“for he satisfies the thirsty and fills the hungry with good things.”

Persistently pursues me – Luke 19:10
“For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.”

Pardons – Psalm 103:3
“who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases,”

Heals – Isaiah 53:5
“But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed.”

Redeems – Job 19:25
“I know that my redeemer lives, and that in the end he will stand on the earth.”

Is loving kindness – Psalm 86:15
“But you, Lord, are a compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness.”

Renews – Isaiah 40:31
“but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary,they will walk and not be faint.”

Is righteous – Jeremiah 9:23-24
This is what the Lord says:
“Let not the wise boast of their wisdom or the strong boast of their strength or the rich boast of their riches, but let the one who boasts boast about this: that they have the understanding to know me,
that I am the Lord, who exercises kindness, justice and righteousness on earth, for in these I delight,” declares the Lord.

Is gracious – Ephesians 1:7-8
“In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace that he lavished on us. With all wisdom and understanding,”

Is sovereign – Psalm 103:19
