The Lord Is Father To His Children

The Lord is like a father to his children, tender and compassionate to those who fear him.

Psalm

As a father is kind to his children, so the Lord is kind to those who honor him.

Psalm 103:13 GNT

God makes everything come out right; he puts victims back on their feet. He showed Moses how he went about his work, opened up his plans to all Israel. God is sheer mercy and grace; not easily angered, he’s rich in love. He doesn’t endlessly nag and scold, nor hold grudges forever. He doesn’t treat us as our sins deserve, nor pay us back in full for our wrongs. As high as heaven is over the earth, so strong is his love to those who fear him. And as far as sunrise is from sunset, he has separated us from our sins. As parents feel for their children, God feels for those who fear him. He knows us inside and out, keeps in mind that we’re made of mud. Men and women don’t live very long; like wildflowers they spring up and blossom, But a storm snuffs them out just as quickly, leaving nothing to show they were here. God’s love, though, is ever and always, eternally present to all who fear him, Making everything right for them and their children as they follow his Covenant ways and remember to do whatever he said.

Psalm 103:13 MSG

God loves all of us as his very own children, as a father to a child it bears Joy unto him and honor to those who live in godly ways and are god fearing. For he created each of us.

Genesis 3:19

By the sweat of your brow will you have food to eat until you return to the ground from which you were made. For you were made from dust, and to dust you will return.”

Job 10:9-12 The Message (MSG)

8-12 

“You made me like a handcrafted piece of pottery—

    and now are you going to smash me to pieces?

Don’t you remember how beautifully you worked my clay?

    Will you reduce me now to a mud pie?

Oh, that marvel of conception as you stirred together

    semen and ovum—

What a miracle of skin and bone,

    muscle and brain!

You gave me life itself, and incredible love.

    You watched and guarded every breath I took.

Genesis 3:19 The Message (MSG)

17-19 He told the Man:

“Because you listened to your wife

    and ate from the tree

That I commanded you not to eat from,

    ‘Don’t eat from this tree,’

The very ground is cursed because of you;

    getting food from the ground

Will be as painful as having babies is for your wife;

    you’ll be working in pain all your life long.

The ground will sprout thorns and weeds,

    you’ll get your food the hard way,

Planting and tilling and harvesting,

    sweating in the fields from dawn to dusk,

Until you return to that ground yourself, dead and buried;

you started out as dirt, you’ll end up dirt.”

He doesn’t hold us in ransom for our debts and wrongs of sin we all falter with instead he loves us and gives us lessons to learn and pushes us hard to be better the best we can be. He puts it out very bluntly, honestly, with love and all very loud and clear. God is pure grace and compassion. He does not show anger often for he is peaceful in his mannerisms and still in his guiding spirit. He puts those of torture and tragedies on a pedestal in front of him bringing them out of the darkness they hide in. He has separated us from one thing for the good of ourselves, that is sin. God puts everything where it belongs that he sees fit and makes all right. Since we were still in our mother’s womb he already knew who we were, the plans he had for us he’d hope we’d follow. He knew all about us knowing us inside and out. In an image of him he created us as a father would see his child. He doesn’t treat us as our sins deserve, nor pay us back in full for our wrongs. As high as heaven is over the earth, so strong is his love to those who fear him. God’s love, though, is ever and always, eternally present to all who fear him, Making everything right for them and their children as they follow his Covenant ways and remember to do whatever he said.

“The appeals made to him were blessed by the Spirit of God. His life was spared, and proved the reality of his conversion.”

“As a father pitieth his children. The father pitieth his children that are weak in knowledge, and instructs them; pities them when they are froward, and bears with them; pities them when they are sick, and comforts them; when they are fallen, and helps them up again; when they have offended, and upon their submission, forgives them; when they are wronged, and rights them. Thus “the Lord pitieth them that fear him”

A good parent does not turn his child away or turn his back on then for his wrongs as The father also does not turn you away or shun you for your sins. He stays true to you throughout it all and stand there by your side teaching you and holding you close in love.

As a father is kind to his children, so the Lord is kind to those who honor him.

Psalm 103:13 GNT
