Father Over All of Humanity

Psalm 68:5-6 TLB

He is a father to the fatherless; he gives justice to the widows, for he is holy. He gives families to the lonely, and releases prisoners from jail, singing with joy! But for rebels there is famine and distress.

In God’s divine order for things, He desires that everyone live in a family. Our loving Father (‘abba, which has become common in modern Hebrew as the word Israeli children use for “daddy”) wants no one to live without the comfort of others with whom to share life’s experiences.  This is the ultimate earthly fulfillment. The protection and care that one receives in a family is so essential to human life that God says He will personally intervene on behalf of widows and orphans who lose the normal protection of a husband and father.

Our heavenly Father’s model of family is positive and powerful, and it takes God’s supernatural power to make it work. Just like you need food and water to sustain you the family needs the blessisngs of God in order to prosper. If you have the Lord in your life, then you have something positive to contribute to your family, no matter what the situation.  Glorify Him and He will give you the desires of your heart.
