To know God as Father means to have a healer who will calm the storms that rage within. It means to have a father who will help you to “be strong, courageous, and firm; [and] be not in terror … for it is the Lord your God who goes with you; He will not fail you or forsake you.” To know God as Father means to know what it is like to have a father who is “gracious and merciful, slow to anger, [and] abundant in kindness.” And it means being able to trust a father who will never hurt you or let you down. You can trust God! He is with you now.
