Our Heavenly Father

Matthew 6:26

Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?

If you believe in God, you're double His child, His offspring by creation, and you're His son by adoption in Christ. This statement is also applicable to females

Galatian 3:28

There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus.

Hence we are privileged to call Him, "Our Father which art in heaven." Father! Oh, what a precious word is that. Here is authority: "If I be a Father, where is mine honour?" If ye be sons, where is your obedience?

Here is affection mingled with authority; an authority which does not provoke rebellion; an obedience demanded which is most cheerfully rendered-which would not be withheld even if it might. The obedience which God's children yield to him must be loving obedience.

Father! Here is honour and love. How great is a Father's love to His children! That which friendship cannot do, and mere benevolence will not attempt a father's heart and hand must do for his sons.

They are his offspring, he must bless them; they are his children, he must show himself strong in their defence. If an earthly father watches over his children with unceasing love and care, how much more does our heavenly Father? Abba, Father!

Thank you for reading; Steem on Steemians!

See you next time.

We are blessed to bless others.

I really and truly appreciate this message! I was just telling someone who I was witnessing to about the goodness of the Lord!
I'm glad that He sent His Son and perfected His love in me so that I can be a true reflection of Him.
I truly believe in what you said about the Lord providing for us if we trust our own earthly father to do as well. How much greater is our God in heaven indeed!

Psalm 121King James Version (KJV)

121 I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.

2 My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.

3 He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber.

4 Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.

5 The Lord is thy keeper: the Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand.

6 The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.

7 The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul.

8 The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.

Amen! Glory be to God!

Thank you for your good comment @godambassador. Stay blessed.

Matthew 6:26
This verse shos how blessed we are beyond other creations of God. Everything was provided for us so theres no reason for us to worry about life and everything. We must tie our self in promises of God of prosperity and blessings.

God bless :)

You are so right @gifford. Stay blessed.

really true friend, Your reflection make me think to this prayer, written around 1200, hope You appreciate:

Hymn to Brother Sun
Canticle of the Creatures
The prayer by St. Francis of Assisi

Highest, omnipotent good Lord!
Yours are the praises, the glory, and the honour
And all blessing
To you, alone, Most High, do they belong.
No human lips are worthy
To pronounce Your name.

Praised be You, my Lord with all Your creatures
Especially our brother, Master Sun
Who brings the day and the light
that warms us he that is beautiful and radiant
In all his splendour!
He brings meaning of You, O Most High..

Praised be You, my Lord
For Sister Moon and the Stars;
In the heavens You have made them
Precious and beautiful.
Praised be You, my Lord
Through Brothers Wind
And air, and clouds and storms,
And all the weather,
Through which You give sustenance Your creatures.

Praised be You, my Lord

For Sister Water;
So very useful, and humble
And precious, and chaste.
Praised be You, my Lord
For Brother Fire,
Through whom you brighten the night.
He who is beautiful and gay
And vigorous and strong.

Praised be You, my Lord
For our sister Mother Earth
Who feeds and governs us,
And produces various fruits
And coloured flowers and plants
Praised be You, my Lord
For those who forgive out of love for You;
And endure sickness and trial.
Happy those who endure in peace
For by you, Most High, they shall be crowned.

Praised be You, my Lord
For our Sister Bodily Death,
From whose embrace no living person can escape.
Woe to those who die in mortal sin!
Happy those she finds
Doing your most holy will.
The second death can do no harm to them!
Praise and bless my Lord
And give thanks
And serve him with great humility.

I have heard about "St. Francis of Assisi" but never had a chance to research him and his ministry.

I don' know if You are Catholic, it doesn't matter anyway, just to tell You that the actual Pope choosed his name Francesco in honour of this saint, in order to show clearly his intent of renewing the Church putting in the centre the real message of Jesus and of the Gospel

your post is really inspiring @veejay! Our heavenly father loved us before we came to this earth that love will never change it is constant.

  • We can rely on it.
  • We can trust it.

You are so right brother @giftedwords. Our love is conditional whereas His is unconditional and also he is Love.

Matthew 6:26
The verse tells us that we are blessed by God. Everything was provided for us so there is no reason for us to worry about life.

Shalom :)

Thank you @shaday1982 for your comment. All that is expected of us by God is just to believe in His Word.

John 3:16

For God so love the world that he gave his only begotten Son that whosoever believeth shall not Perish but have everlasting Live

Romans 5:8

While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

When Christ came and died he did that for the totality of humanity without segregation therefore there is no condemnation for any be it male or female, white or black, tall or shot, thin or flat, that are in Christ Jesus

Thank you @ijele. That's exactly what hinders a lot of people, the simplicity of the death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. People want to do some kind of sacrifice to be accepted by God. The Bible speaks of dead works.

Isaiah 64:6 But we are all like an unclean thing, And all our righteousnesses are like filthy rags; We all fade as a leaf, And our iniquities, like the wind, Have taken us away.

when you quota and speak the scripture, satan is always covered with shame, i fuel you to continue speaking the word of our LORD JESUS.

I concur with you @voiceforchrist. Hebrews 4:12 "For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword..."
