“This, then, is how you should pray:  ‘Our Father in Heaven’……..” Jesus Christ

“It is sobering to recall that fathers bear the title that God Himself has chosen as a picture of His relationship to His people,”…………Dr.  Billy Graham

Our Loving God is not, “the man upstairs,”  or “the big guy in the sky,”   He is our Heavenly Father.

“Every good and perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning,”  (James 1:17).

No matter what your experience or relationship has been like with your earthly father, you can rejoice in the truth today that our Heavenly Father is watching out for you. He sits real high, but He looks real low.

“His eye is on the sparrow and I know He’s watching me.”

Recently I heard a small child ask, “Who made God?”  “Where did He come from?”  An adult answered her, “No one made God, He always has existed.”  We all know that answer is correct but it takes child like faith to believe and accept that, doesn’t it?  He has originated and established wonderful blessings and gifts for you and me.

I don’t know what trial, question or fear you are facing today, but I do know that you and I can place our trust in our Heavenly Father,  He will provide for you and protect you as you continue to trust in Him.

Have child like faith in Him. You will be glad that you did.
