Missions Monday | Father to the fatherless

Just lately, I have been reminded over and over again of the Father's relationship to me, as His err —His daughter.

The Lord promises in John 14:18, "I will not leave you comfortless [as orphans]. I will come to you." That verse brings such comfort to my heart. Recent times have found me so run down and weary — I've wanted so desperately to cry out to my Father, but it was as if I was too weary to even whisper a word. The Lord says that HE will come TO us! I love that. In 2 Corinthians 6:18, He says, "[I] will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons & daughters, saith the Lord Almighty." Another beautiful promise is found in Galations 4:6, "..Because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father."

Maybe today you are crying out in a wilderness. You have been wounded, you are hurting, you are left "fatherless" (whether literally or figuratively) and you wonder when healing is coming. Take comfort in Matthew 9:22,

"Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee WHOLE." —Jesus

You are WHOLE in Jesus Christ today.
