Precious moments. We stared at each other for what seemed like an hour, our eyes tracking back and forth, studying all the features of each other’s faces. She’s learning her daddy. After watching me move my mouth and raise my eyebrows, she started to smile, ever so slightly, finding joy in the knowledge that we were connecting.
But his delight is in the law of the Lord,
And in His law he meditates day and night.
Our understanding of God comes from the time we’re willing to spend with him. If we’ll take advantage of all the means through which God reveals himself, we can begin to learn the curves of his grace and the warmth of his love. Meditating on his word daily brings forth a certain joy as we come to know God more. It takes time to learn about God, but it takes true patience and submission to connect with him.
I hope that you will take the time to learn God’s face; to take in the promise in his eyes and the assurance of his smile. He’s your daddy and like the old gospel song says, “…and the joy we share as we tarry there, none other has ever known.” Learn your Daddy, because that connection will bring an everlasting joy.
