father's heart

"And he said to him, 'Son, you have always been with me, and all that is mine is yours.'" - Luke 15:31

"We have here two things describing the privilege: First, 'Son, thou art ever with me' - unbroken fellowship with thy Father is thy portion; Second, 'All that I have is thine' - all that God can bestow upon His children is theirs."

"'Thou are ever with me;' I am always near thee; thou canst dwell every hour of thy life in My presence, and all I have is for thee. I am a father, with a loving father’s heart. I will withhold no good thing from thee. In these promises, we have the rich privilege of God’s heritage."

- Andrew Murray, The Deeper Christian Life, Chapter II.
