When we know the Father as our Protector, we no longer feel the need to beg for safety.
When we know Him as our Provider, we lack nothing.
When we know Him as our Healer we no longer plead for healing. We simply believe.
When we know Him as the Director of our lives, we are unconcerned with missing something important.
When we know Him as the Truth we no longer worry about the sway of deception.
When we take His rest, we stop carrying heavy burdens around.
When He is the only One to please, we stop needing others to be pleased with us. (Ones who love God will be, ones who do not won’t like us much anyway.)
When His approval is the only approval that matters, the lure of position, notoriety or human validation is non-existent.
When we fully grasp our value to Him, we cease from all self-expectation and accomplishment that we thought made us valuable.
When we know Him as Best Friend we take great care to never kick aside that friendship with impurity or compromise.
When we know Him intimately as our Peace, fear and anxiety are automatically repelled away.
And when we know Him as The Source of Comfort, we handle emotional pain with Him so that it cannot eat us alive.
