Just Like My Father
Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth: What comes to mind when I say the word "father"?
Woman: I remember helping my dad paint. I’d say, ‘Does this look okay?’ I was hoping to hear him say, ‘Good job,’ or something. Instead, he would always tell me how to do it better.
Nancy: If you’ve been wounded by a father or another man that you trusted, you may find it hard to trust God. Can I tell you that God is unlike any man you’ve ever known? Even the best earthly father is only a pale reflection of Him. We need to look to the Scripture to get an accurate picture of God. In God’s Word we see a heavenly Father who is compassionate, merciful, and tender toward His children; a Father who loves to give good gifts to His children; a Father who disciplines His children, but never rejects them.
Regardless of what kind of earthly father you may have had, if you’re a child of God, you have a heavenly Father who loves you dearly and who can be totally trusted.
With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth.
