I had a dream last night. In it, I had told my hubby about a new ring I wanted. It was very nice, but definitely within our price range and not overly fancy or expensive. Next thing I know, he’s handing me a tiny box and grinning ear to ear. I assumed it was the ring I had specifically asked for, but when I opened the box, I was stunned to find 3 gorgeous diamond rings that went beautifully together!
They had to cost him a fortune! There was no way I could afford or deserve that much bling. I had only wanted something simple, yet he desired to give me the best. And he did it with so much excitement, knowing I would be so blessed and touched by his thoughtfulness. He didn’t give it to me because I had asked for it, but because he loves me and has the best for me.
Needless to say, I woke up with a huge smile on my face! And it instantly dawned on me, that is how our loving Father is toward us. He doesn’t give to us out of obligation. He also doesn’t give to us based on what we deserve. He is the ultimate Giver, lavishing us with His best, knowing that we can never earn or repay Him for the gifts. He delights in seeing our faces light up when we open the blessings He has placed before us. It brings Him joy when we receive the good things He has in store for us. And He always has the best gifts for each and every one of us, more than we could ever hope or imagine.
