Be in Health focuses much on the love of Father God. I believe one of the reasons is because there are so many Christians that have a misconception on Father God and many whom they minister to are individuals that have battled with the mindset of an unloving spirit. I thought it would be good to share about the significant experience that brought me to the Love of the Father and what it is like to know the Love of the Father.
I was sitting at a table doing needlepoint in an Arts & Craft class at a Christian Treatment Facility. I thought “This is ridiculous, needlepoint for counseling? What a waste of insurance money!”
But something was happening. My brain was finally slowing down. I did not have to have everything figured out. Strangely I was doing something that I had never done and did not feel like I had to perform. I was feeling peace for the first time in years.
As I sat at the table I looked around the room. In a week I had gotten to know some of the people. I thought “Everyone I know in here loves Jesus wholeheartedly. Everyone in here is trying to serve Him with their heart but is bound up with addiction, anger, and/or depression. Some are suicidal. BUT Father God loves them anyways. It is so sad they do not know it.” I felt compassion for all of them. It was a very emotional moment.
Then something happened to me. I was overwhelmed by the Love of the Father. He said to my heart, “The love you feel for them is not even close to the love I feel for you.” Suddenly I was consumed with love unimaginable. For the first time in my life I felt the Love of the Father-consumed with it.
My life has never been the same. That was around 1990. The Unloving Spirit towards myself was broken off. My love for the hurting broken ones became stronger than it ever had been-and it had been strong ever since I became born again.
The suicide spirit left me. The self-hatred and self-pity left me. The having to be perfect and perform left me. The peace that passes understanding encompassed me. My world was turned right side up.
Thick Skin, Soft Heart
The greatest change that took place over a couple years was I learned how to have thick skin. There is not much anyone can say or do to me that affects me. None of it interferes with my understanding of the Love of the Father. Bottom line He loves me.
I am by the grace of God able to keep a soft heart. Just keep on loving no matter what. Loving myself and loving others.
WHO and Separation
In the midst of all this I was practicing the concept of Who and Separation without knowing it. Identify who is speaking and not let it affect me-Separate.
I have not arrived. I have had my battles with an unloving spirit but I know WHO my enemy is and how to find it. I have lost some battles. But won plenty more. I can say that one of the greatest benefits for me understanding the Love of Father God is that I no longer feel condemnation, guilt, or shame when I mess up. At least, nothing like I did in the past.
I am still a messed up person, in some ways will be until I receive my glorified body. I am okay with that. I am so okay with it I am more than willing to share all about my failures in front of anyone in any setting. Guess what? My Father God loves me in spite of me!!!!!!!
GUESS WHAT? FATHER GOD LOVES YOU SPITE OF YOU!!!!
