Meet My Father
My eartly father did what seemed best to him (most of the time!), but my heavenly Father knows what's best for me (all the time!).
One thing I do know: No father is perfect. Mine is not, as he will freely admit. And I am far from being a perfect father for my children. But I know Someone who is perfect, because He has been there for me when no one else has.
God the eternal Father is the Creator, Source, Sustainer, and Sovereign of all creation. He is just and holy, merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness. The qualities and powers exhibited in the Son and the Holy Spirit are also revelations of the Father. (Gen. 1:1; Rev. 4:11; 1 Cor. 15:28; John 3:16; 1 John 4:8; 1 Tim. 1:17; Ex. 34:6, 7; John 14:9.)But the most amazing fact about our heavenly Father is that He is in character just exactly what Jesus is. As Jesus reminded Philip, “He who has seen Me has seen the Father.” He says the Father “makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust” (John 14:9; Matt. 5:44, 45).
