“Our Father in heaven”
Meditation 3: “Father” of Provision
After affirming that God is in fact ours, it is important to understand more of who He actually is to us. God relates to us as our Father. For a simple example of God as Father, we are told that God “carries His son” (Deut 1:31). God is a God who provides to us “all the way”.
Jesus taught the disciples this in the New Testament (Matt 10:29-31). We cannot escape “our Father’s care”. He even knows how many hairs are upon our head! We are praying to this Father of provision.
