Having a Sweet Fellowship with Our heavenly Father is the zenith you can reach in your walk with our Daddy (God). The scripture says that “And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him” (Genesis 5:24, KJV). Walking with Daddy has many benefits…first of all, I refer to walking with Daddy as Sweet Fellowship because it is the sweetest experience you would ever have on earth.
Permit me to draw a little contrast between our relationship people in power on earth and that of our Father in Heaven.
When it is getting to election, we see politician trooping into schools, churches, restaurants, joining public transports, etc in order to convey their message(s) to us. They beg us for Power. They use “We” to include you and I in their political campaign and they would do anything to make us believe that they would behave different when we give them power. During those times, you don’t need to follow protocol to meet them and every suggestion, comment, idea, etc is welcomed.
However, we (electorates) are often disappointed after they are elected as presidents, MPs, Senators, etc. because once Power has been given to them, its about them, their family and friends. They do what they think would benefit the majority that voted them into power. It becomes very difficult in seeing or meeting them as the gap between them and electorates widens. The relationship sometimes turns sour before they leave office. In summary, we vote for them…we give them Power, and some use the same Power against us.
Relationship with Our Daddy
We experience something different when it comes to Our Father. Here, He created us and made the Sun to shine upon us in the day and the Moon at night. He provides the air we breathe and freely gives us the basic things we need for life. He created the Heaven and Earth, the sea, wild animals, etc. He knows and understands our lives better than anyone. He is The Most Powerful Person in the Universe. He assumed that Power by Himself and didn’t need us to vote for Him. He has remained Faithful from generations to generations. His tenure of office doesn’t expire and He has got the whole world in His hands. These are some few attributes of our Daddy who neither sleep nor slumber.
What is so fascinating about our Daddy is that He comes down to our level to communicate with us. Yes, He does that everyday. In describing His Superiority, He said “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts” (Isaiah 55:9, KJV). The good news for us is that despite this gap, he says to us daily “Come now, and let us reason together” (Isaiah 1:18, KJV).
One benefit you enjoy in your walk with Daddy is the promise He made in Psalm 32:8 “I will guide you along the BEST pathway for your life. I will advise you and watch over you” (emphasis added). Three things can be seen in this promise:
- He will guide you (Guidance)
- He will advise you (Counselor)
- He will watch over you (Protector)
When you have The Most Powerful Person (Who knows all things, sees all things, and can do all things) guiding you, advising you, and watching over you, All things will work together for your good and nothing shall be difficult for you.
Lenny Leblanc sang “Don’t have to walk a million miles to find You, Don’t have to sail around the world to see. ‘Cause every time I lift my heart to praise You. There You are right next to me…“. Truly, our Daddy is closer.
How can one have this Fellowship?
“Draw near to God and He will draw near to you” (James 4:8, NKJV)
It is easy to have access to these benefits once you have Jesus as your Saviour. Remember that Jesus is the Only Way to our Father.
You can’t live in Sin and still profess Him as your Daddy.
“Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.” (1 John 3:9, KJV).
So let go of anything that stands between you and Jesus. It could be a negative habit; a common lie, hatred, jealousy, sexual immorality, fornication, adultery, idolatry, drunkenness, drugs, etc. Regardless of how small or big your circumstance is, no sin and/or mistake is too big for Calvary.
Jesus said in Revelation 3:20 that “Look! I have been standing at the door, and I am constantly knocking. If anyone hears me calling him and opens the door, I will come in and fellowship with him and he with me.” (TLB)
Once you have Jesus Christ (as your High Priest), you gain access to our Daddy’s throne of grace. There you will receive his mercy, and you will find grace to help you when we need it most, according to the scriptures.
I have tasted and known how wonderful it is to have sweet fellowship with Daddy, whereby He tells me what to do, when to do it, and how to do it. He saved me from plots of the enemy and provided every need. When I open my mouth to make request in the Name of Jesus, He answers me. He doesn’t disappoint and always cause His children to triumph in their every day lives.
Come, let us enjoy this fellowship together. But if you are in Christ, Keep enjoying your life in Him. Jesus is coming
