1. The Father Loves
God loves: 1 John 3:1 (NKJV) Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God! Therefore the world does not know us, because it did not know Him. The primary defining characteristic
Behold look at the way he loves!
2. The Father Provides
God provides: Matthew 6:31-32 (NKJV) Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.
If God clothes the birds and the flowers… he will take care of you!
Every good and perfect gift comes from above!
3. The Father Protects
God protects: Psalm 61:3-4 (NKJV) For You have been a shelter for me, A strong tower from the enemy. 4 I will abide in Your tabernacle forever; I will trust in the shelter of Your wings. Selah
He is a strong tower to run to for safety
His security system has no clitches no lapse
4. The Father Leads
God leads: Psalm 48:14 (KJV) For this God is our God for ever and ever: he will be our guide even unto death.
God has never left his people w/o direction
Pillar of fire cloud vision prophets casting lots voice
He orders our steps he sets the course sovereign will
