Mid-Cape Gathering preparation: Day 16
 

 *" I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with
loving-kindness....they will come with weeping; they will pray as I bring
them back. ** I will lead them besides streams of water on a level path
where they will not stumble." *Jeremiah 31:3,9

The Father-heart of God was s thrilled with me-an immature,mess-making,
spiritual infant-as with one of His spiritually mature sons who had just
graduated with honors from the school of the Spirit. My heavenly Father
enjoyed me while I was yet in the process of maturing, not sighing in
disgust and waiting impatiently until I grew up. He loved and longed for me;
He felt proud and was excited over me even while I was falling short.

PRAYER STARTER:

*Father, like Mike Bickle, I am an immature mess-making, spiritual infant.
Yet You love me so much, that You enjoy me just as I am. It's so hard for me
to comprehend that You could feel that way, Father, but my heart is
overwhelmed with love because of it.*
**

AS MY CONFIDENCE IN HIM GREW, MY HEART BECAME WARM AND TENDER TOWARD GOD.
