One of my greatest joys as a parent is surprising my son with an unexpected gift. At Christmas I always have to take his gifts to someone else’s home and hide them until Christmas Eve because as soon as he sees or feels the package he can tell what it is – without fail. It is a challenge for me to wrap something in a way that fools him. It rarely works, but when it does it is such a thrill to see his excitement at being surprised.
I believe God feels like this when He blesses us with the things He has prepared for us. He is the best Father we could ever imagine. In fact, according to Ephesians 3:20-21 … He is a better Father than we could ever imagine.
“Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.”
