A father of the fatherless, a defender of widows,
Is God in His holy habitation.
Father God will never let you down! You might feel like your earthly dad was the best. Perhaps you think your dad was the worst. Or maybe your earthly father wasn’t even around. However, God is a good Father, and the best dad!
Fathers. They love us, teach us, cheer for us, want us to succeed, and when we have questions, our fathers respond in the most profound way: “Go ask your mother.” In the midst of hokey “dad jokes” and finding fun in the most mundane of tasks, fathers also have an incredible gift for embarrassing their kids!
God’s love for you compared to an earthly father’s love for his children is like comparing the sun to a candle! He has loved you since before the foundation of the world (Ephesians 1:3-6). Jeremiah 31:3 says that God has loved you with an everlasting love, and He has drawn you to Him with lovingkindness.
…That the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me” (John 17:23).
Wow! Jesus even said that the Father loves you just as much as He loves Jesus!
