How are you and how’s your Father’s Day? You’re not alone dads. What kind of Father is God? He's a good good Father... it's who He is.

Happy Father's Day to the Fathers! I hope that your day and weekend are going really well. Guess what.. your heavenly Abba Father God really loves you today even if no one else here does. And He is 100%, all the way perfectly good! Volkommen!..-you can know Him in a personal way today! 

He has a lot in mind for you and can use you for His glory--you know this! But what is it that I like about Him so much. I love how He balances perfect love and discipline, courtesy and control, grace and solid merciful-truth. So just and fair--all that JOY gives me a happy life in His direct will. And it can be that way for you if you dare to believe! 

Physiologists tell us that so many people have a strong fatherhood-hunger cuz they've had such bad bad fathers. It's a perfect-love hunger.

But Orlando Kurt? How could God be good after allowing all that to happen? Let me tell you it breaks God's heart. Those were not His choices that were made to destroy down there. Hey, didn't He warn us in advance about people and systems like that, and what can come from such? Sure. 

"Anyone who has seen Me has seen the Father. How can you say, 'Show us the Father'? Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in Me? The words I say to you, I do not speak on My own. Instead, it is the Father dwelling in Me, carrying out His work." John 14:9-10   

How Good? Listen; what God would choose for you is exactly what you would choose for yourself if you always had the good sense to see it as it really is. But I've personally been such an erroring, finite father with whacked judgment and blown it with wrong-doin's and weird balance at times. 

"Blessed are those whose lawless deeds are forgiven, and whose sins are covered; blessed is the man to whom the Lord shall not impute sin."  Romans 4:7-8 nkjv

"Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God! Therefore the world does not know us, because it did not know Him." 1 John 3:1 

1.) The Father's Presence is Good!

"And He said, 'My presence shall go with you, and I will give you rest."  Exodus 33:14 

"Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence?"  Psalm 139:7 

"..for in Him we live and move and exist, as even some of your own poets have said, 'For we also are His children.'"  Acts 17:28 

"You will make known to me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; In Your right hand there are pleasures forever." Psalm 16:11 

2.) The Father's Plan is Good!

"Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand." Proverbs 19:21 

"For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope." Jeremiah 29:11

3.) The Father's Provision is Good!

"Every good and perfect gift is from above,coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, with whom there is no change or shifting shadow."  James 1:17 

"Or what man is there among you who, when his son asks for a loaf, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, he will not give him a snake, will he? If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give what is good to those who ask Him!"  Matthew 7:9-11

Our Lord just loves to bless His Children, meeting all their needs instead of greeds. "For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord gives grace and glory;No good thing does He withhold from those who walk uprightly." Psalm 84:11 

"He who did not spare His own Son but gave up Him for us all, how will He not also, along with Him, freely give us all things?" Romans 8:32 

4.) The Father's Providence is Good!

"And we know that God works all things together for the good of those who love Him, who are called according to His purpose."  Romans 8:28 

5.) The Father's Power is Good!

And it is give for a reason; for reaching others with the Gospel. It's not just so we can enjoy the feeling of it, or get something for ourselves alone out of it. 

"Jesus replied, 'It is not for you to know times or seasons that the Father has fixed by His own authority. But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you, and you will be My witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth." Acts 1:8
