Papa’s Tender Love! October 25 Notes from Papa via Paul Gray
To My very special child, whom I love so tenderly,
There are times, My child, when you especially need your Papa’s tender love. I know that seemingly out of the blue, you get thoughts, accusations, reminders of things that you said and did years ago, that you are ashamed of. The accuser shoots those into your mind and attempts to shame you. In your natural strength, you have no defense, no answer to his charges. They are accurate in that you did do and say what he accuses you of. However, his accusations are not true in light of what I did for you in My finished work at the cross!
I actually took each and every one of those shameful things, acts, deeds and words on Me! I literally became your sin! I scorned the shame. I took it all, paid for it with My life and My blood, I took it all away… never to return. I reconciled you to Myself, not counting or imputing any sin to you ever! I choose not to remember your sin or ever bring it up to you ever…or ever hold it against you. I took it all and gave you My innocence, My right standing, and My purity and holiness. You are without fault!
Can you see that if I had not done this, there would be no hope for you or anyone? You would have no answer to the accuser’s accusations. You would then continue lying to cover up… or strive endlessly to “make up” for your sins or self-medicate to attempt to forget them.
All of those attempts end in death. You die a little more each day. You die to joy. You die to intimacy with Me. You die to real life.
I don’t want any of that for you! I am all about life… real, abundant, joy filled life!
I have given you My very life! I have included you, and everyone, in My Divine Triune circle dance of life and everything that flows from My unconditional love: joy, peace, patience, goodness, gentleness, faith, kindness, Holy Spirit power, strength, mercy, grace, comfort, encouragement and affirmation.
You have all of that… all of Me… with no regret! I want you to think about and dwell on these things which are true, pure, right, admirable and worthy of praise… and enjoy Me!
When those damning thoughts and accusations come, remember My truth! I have dealt with all of them as you and for you. I gave My life for you so that I could give My life to you so that I can live My live as you!
Now, as I live in you, as you and through you, together We will enjoy this day that I have made especially for us together!
