I was fortunate enough to attend and minister at a conference - Legacy 2012 - in Houston, Texas honoring one of my fathers in the faith, Jack Taylor. One of the speakers was Bill Johnson, pastor of Bethel Church in Redding, CA. He spoke of the Kingdom of God in his first session and how we must come to the Father in the attitude of little children. He told a story of God gracing his own life with evidence of His power and love in a very specific way. One day, sitting by a lake, he began throwing small pebbles into the water. As he did so, the small fish began to eat them and spit them back out, thinking they were small bugs. Bill wondered to himself as a bee flew into his sight, "I wonder if a fish would eat a bee." At that very moment, the bee promptly fell into the water - and a fish ate him! Bill was overwhelmed with God's love and power in that instant. As soon as he told this story I was reminded of how many times I have had similar occurrences - and how I take those moments as little surprises of God's love for me and presence with me. I missed Bill's next two sessions because I was so consumed with receiving this song. I found a piano and poured my heart into this. This is one of my all-time favorite songs God has given me. I love just being with my own children and I love blessing them - and I am an earthly father - so how much more does our Father desire to just be with us and to enjoy OUR presence? Think about Whose you are and who you are as you sing this song...and enjoy the Kingdom you are a citizen of!
[Jesus said], "Permit the children to come to Me; do not hinder them; for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. "Permit the children to come to Me; do not hinder them; for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these." And He took them in His arms and began to bless them, laying His hands on them. Mark 10:14-16 NASB
