I love how my kids great their daddy whenever he comes home, they run to him and fling themselves upon him and yell "Daddy!" and giggle and smile and ooze out their affection and adoration. And Keith eats up, he loves it more and more every time, he never gets tired of it!
I imagine that's how the Father is when we run to him and desire to wrap our arms around our Daddy, and praise and adore Him! I imagine the Father, looks at us lovingly and adoringly, and smiles with deep affection for all His children!
It really is wonderful to be able to taste and sense this exchange of love and affection between us and our Heavenly Father!
I found a wonderful quote on Adrian Warnocks's blog, that John Piper shares about experiencing the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, and he paints a scenario of what that may look like, by using the example of a Father and child love exchange. It really blessed me to hear a prominent man of God speaking in this way! Hope it blesses you too!
