The Presence of a Father

Posted by

“For you make him most blessed forever; you make him glad with the joy of your presence.” –Psalm 21:6

Many of us have been blessed to experience the joy of our earthly father’s presence. We have been graced to enjoy their company.

Some of us have not been afforded many of these opportunities – if any – due to circumstances we could not control, like adoption, death, divorce, etc.

Whether we have been afforded a lifetime of opportunities in the presence of our earthly fathers or no opportunities, God’s presence trumps them all. He blesses us forever, a promise no earthly father could keep.

Because of the hardness of our hearts, we need the Holy Spirit to soften our hearts to feel the goodness of our Heavenly Father. We need our eyes opened to see and treasure the worth of Jesus. Understanding who Jesus is makes our fellowship with the Father much sweeter – for no one can come to the Father except through him.

God desires that we feel his presence and know him. May he be exalted in his strength and compassion towards us today.
