Reaching Down

“God in His holy dwelling is a father of the fatherless and a champion of widows.”‭‭ Psalms‬ ‭68:5‬ ‭

I have talked with many (girls and women, especially), who are walking a broken path, that stems from a broken relationship with their earthly father. He was physically or emotionally absent, he hurt them with words or hands, he left, etc.. He did not fulfill the role that he was meant to. This has shaped the way that many view and approach their relationship with God, our Heavenly Father. It is difficult for a person to understand and relate to God as Father, when their earthly dad placed a broken lens across their vision. God, however, has the ability to restore proper vision and to show his compassion, faithfulness, and overall goodness, as THE perfect father. Scripture tells us that He is the father to he fatherless and champion of widows! What wonderful news! The Bible also tells us that when we seek Him, we will find Him (Jer. 29:13). Are you ready to find Him and experience the love of a father that will never let you go? Seek Him. I know many who are in the process of seeking, and rest assured, our God is faithful to fulfill His promise. He is good! He will not disappoint. Are you weak? He is reaching down. You don’t have to climb, or make it to your feet, even. He is reaching to lift you up. He is your good Father. Look up, He is reaching down.
