God's truth for today's world

Father and daughter create a very strong bond. Girls have fond memories of their fathers, and even when there’s physical distance spanning many years, tears are shed when a father leaves this world. The role of a father is similar to the role of priest, he represents God in his home and binds the family together in front of God. Unfortunately, for some women, thinking about father evokes painful and haunting memories. For them, thinking about God in a role of a father may be difficult.

Key Takeaways:

  • Following the action of God, a father loves his children unreservedly.
  • A father provide and protects his children. From 1 Kings 17:6 and Psalm 23:7. Reliance on God for these things is just.
  • One who believes in God as a father can expect him to keep his promises. This is faith.
