HEAVENLY PARENT
Matthew 7:7-11

[God] comforts us in all our trouble so that we can comfort other people who are in every kind of trouble.— 2 Corinthians 1:4 (CEB)

Being a parent doesn’t come with a job description or manual. It is on-the-job training all the way. As a father, I am always learning.
I am no superhero or mighty pillar of strength. I am only a parent. When my child hurts, I react. When my child cries out, I hear. When my child asks for assistance, I do what I can to help.
So why don’t I let my heavenly Father do for me what I am more than willing to do for my own children? Why do I try to do it all myself? I am finally learning to go to my heavenly Father when I am frightened, lonely, bruised, or hurt.
God reassures us: “The Lord your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing” (Zeph. 3:17, NIV). I’m learning that God is waiting to give me comfort as a parent who wants the best for me, a father who will pick me up and hold me in his arms. God our Father won’t go away — ever!
