Remember Your Other Father

Today in church,  we were reminded about who our father was. We all have a birth father and some of us were blessed to have them bring us up. We know our fathers as the patriarch of our families providing love,  protection. advise,  discipline and so much more!
However, as much as our Father’s may have wanted to,  they couldn’t protect us from everything.

We do have another father and he has also been there. When your physical father couldn’t heal you,  God did it.   When the verdict wasnt left up to you,  God did it. When you thought there was no other way,  God did it.  The Bible says in Psalm 139:17 “How precious also are your thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them!”

Our God doesn’t just love us, but his thoughts towards us are great and plenty. Today as we celebrate our Father’s, dont forget to celebrate the one of whom nothing would be possible. Remember your other Father and whose child you are.
