A Father's heart is different than that of a brother.

My nine(9) year old son doesn't act as mature as my thirty one(31) year old, yet I am not disappointed in him at all. My heart is filled with joy just being with him and watching him grow!

Every parent knows why - he is supposed to act like he's nine because he is nine. His fourteen(14) year old brother looks at him with disgust, "Mom! He is acting so childish!!"

The heart of a Father is different than the heart of a brother!

Listening to a message by Mike Bickle opened a whole new understanding of how God can be happy with us with all our shortcomings. Our Heavenly Father rejoices in our sincerity and understands our immaturity, being happy with our changed heart through Christ, our growth and future.

The Bible, in Philippians 4:8, tells us to think on that which is true, honest, just, pure, lovely, of good report and what is virtuous and praise worthy - it will make us happy! God knows that, it is exactly what He does with us and it makes him happy.
