As we celebrate our earthly fathers today on Father’s Day, let us not forget to honor our Heavenly Father. After all, He is the One we look to as the perfect model for a Father’s heart.
The word of God declares that our Heavenly Father has loved us with an everlasting love. He knows every hair on our head. He has inscribed our names on the palm of His hand.
He is our redeemer, our protector, provider, comforter, instructor, our guide. He is our Abba Father -- our Daddy who cherishes His children. His word declares…”Because you are precious to me, I have honored you and I love you.” (Isaiah 43:4)
Even when our earthly fathers fail us our Heavenly Father tells us through His word that He will never leave us or forsake us. He will not leave us orphans and that He will gather us up.
So let’s take a moment to honor and praise our perfect Father for all we have in Him but most of all -- His indescribable gift of sending His precious Son – Jesus Christ as the ultimate gift of love and sacrifice so that we can be reconciled back to our Father and spend eternity with Him. He is a good and perfect Father. Happy Father’s Day Abba.
