Not Forsaken: Finding Freedom as Sons & Daughters of a Perfect Father
points - Details)
What do you think about when you think about God?
Some would say he’s a ruler that expects absolute loyalty and tribute. Others say God is their coach who’s only satisfied when they’ve pushed hard enough and performed to his expectations. Maybe to you he’s more like a virtual assistant you address when you’ve exhausted all other options, or an old man sitting in a cloud who’s best days are behind him, better off forgotten.
Your view of God is the most important thing about you. It informs everything about who we are and who we’re becoming. It is vital we understand this; because if we have a flawed view of God, we’ll have a flawed view of life.
What would it mean to us then if God’s desire was to be nearer to us – not a coach or a King, a genie or a distant memory, but a Father – a perfect Father who never wants you to live a day without his blessing?
In Not Forsaken, Louie Giglio points us to a God is not absent or ambivalent, but is available and affectionate, ready to shower us with his approval and love. This has radical significance for the very foundations of the Christian faith. Louie offers this promise, that our God has spanned heaven and earth to reach us.
When we take hold of this truth, we are not defined by our pasts but by the love of a perfect Father. God wants us to experience his unique, unconditional love and to live in the freedom, abundance, and blessing He freely gives. Our hearts are transformed by Him and we are free to rest in the identity, value, and plan God has given us.
You are not forsaken. You are loved. You are valued.
You are cared for by the God of the universe whose arms are strong and whose heart is good.
