When we talk about God Fathering us, in essence we are talking about God playing certain essential Fatherly roles in our lives. God wants to include you in His bigger story by fathering you in the following 5 ways:
1. Provision: Only God can provide without limitation.
In the desert he fed over a million people for 40 years.
2. Protection: Only God can protect you without limitation.
“Unless the Lord watches over the city, the watchmen stand guard in vain.…”
Psalms 127 : 1b
3. Prophet: Only God can tell you, who you truly are and can become.
“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.…”
4. Priest: Only God can intercede for you without ceasing.
“Therefore He is also able to save to the uttermost those who come to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them”.…”
5. Presence: Only God the Father can be there for you consistently through the changing circumstances of life.
“When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, Nor shall the flame scorch you…”
Friends the big question is will you let God to father you ?
