God the Father has a wonderful Divine Nature. His Divine nature is:
The Name "God the Father" is very special.
It reveals the very essence of His relationship with us, namely His Fatherhood.

This Fatherly relationship impacts our life in three ways:
  1. God has received us as children so that He can be our Heavenly Father.
    John 1:12
    But as many as received him, to them gave He the power to become the sons of God.
    2 Corinthians 6:18
    And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.

  2. Jesus said that we may pray to God our Father

    After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

  3. God loves us and cares for all our needs.

    Matthew 7:11, 6:26

    How much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him? Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?

God the Father knows us intimately and thinks about us.
Psalm 139:1-16
O Lord, You have looked through me and have known me. You know when I sit down and when I get up. You understand my thoughts from far away. You look over my path and my lying down. You know all my ways very well. Even before I speak a word, O Lord, You know it all. For You made the parts inside me. You put me together inside my mother. Your eyes saw me before I was put together. And all the days of my life were written in Your book before any of them came to be.

His thoughts about us are countless.
Psalm 139:17-18
How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them! If I could number them, there would be more than the sand.

God always takes very special care of us.
He is concerned with our well being and we are valuable to Him.
Matthew 6:30-32
Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? Therefore take no thought, saying, what shall we eat? Or, what shall we drink? Or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? For your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.

Those who are born again of the Holy Spirit of God, are privileged to be a part of Godís family.

Be sure to become a Child of God and honor Him as your Heavenly Father!
