God Our Father
Even if an earthly mother or father abandon their children, God our Father will never do that.
“What, then, shall we say in response to this? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? (Romans 8:31-32).
Recently troubles have come our way, but He keeps us joyful and thankful all the way. Well, not all the way just yet, because the light is still nowhere to be seen in this tunnel.
But I know one thing. He is our Father. He will never forsake us. In fact, it is truly impossible - and totally against His very character - for Him to abandon us, His redeemed people.
“Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.” (Deuteronomy 31:6).
“For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 8:38-39).
