Note – From Pastor Joshua Skelly

“But now, O Lord, You are our Father; We are the clay, and You our potter; And all we are the work of Your hand.” Isaiah 64:8
I find it incredible that God Himself. The creator of the universe takes on the title of our “Heavenly Father.” Those who have put their faith and trust in Him are now His children for all eternity.
Recognize God as the Father and grasp the depths of His amazing love. John 3:16, probably the most famous verse of all time, says He SO loved the world. His love is unconditional, unrelenting,  and intense. It’s the love that forgives, heals and restores us from Satan’s power and allows us to be a free child of God.
God our Father is secure. One of the strongest fears people face is abandonment. We do not want those we love to leave us. God is unlike anything we have in this world. He never leaves us or forsakes us. If we are His child He will never let go!
“be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said ‘I will never leave you nor forsake you.”
God is a personal Father. He is Father to many but he knows and cares for YOU individually. The Bible says that he knows the strands of hair on your head. Jesus said, God knows when a sparrow falls to the ground. Jesus then asked, How much more does He care for you? That’s God the Father; loving, secure and personal. What a great Father He truly is!
