My earthly father fell short of being perfect – maybe you can relate. Possibly you don’t have good memories of sitting in your Dad’s lap, or feeling safe and secure.
My heavenly father is perfect. He is my refuge and fortress, my protector, confidant, supporter, encourager. I can crawl into his lap and be comforted and strengthened. He’s a good, good father.
As for God, his way is perfect: The Lord’s word is flawless; he shields all who take refuge in him.
He’s a good, good father.
We can find that comfort and security we need by seeking the loving arms of our heavenly father and resting in him.
1 Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.[a]
2 I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust.”
Praise God, my husband has been a good father to our two sons. As they saw modeled in their father, they are good fathers to their children.
May their legacy continue to the next generations.
