A Faithful Father Figure!

Now look at 2nd Chronicles 20:7, “O Our God, did you not drive out the inhabitants of this land before your people Israel and give it forever to the descendants of Abraham your friend?”

We must be reminded today that God is a Faithful Father Figure!

King Jehoshaphat was reminding himself and the people of Judah of God’s faithfulness in the past. “Did you not?” There are times when we must remind ourselves of that same truth! King Jehoshaphat was celebrating God’s Faithful Father tendencies! God had already accomplished great things for His Children. God has already accomplished great things for His Children.

King Jehoshaphat was making a mental list.

God chose Abraham and promised him that he would be a great nation. God raised up Moses and then, through many miracles, delivered His people from the bondage of the Egyptians. God raised up Joshua and the Hebrew armies to take for themselves the land of Canaan.  As King Jehoshaphat spoke, the Hebrew could reach down, grab a hand full of dirt, and touch God’s promises and celebrate a Faithful Father Figure!

Church, reach down today or over or under and be reminded of just how faithful your heavenly father has been! Because of the past, King Jehoshaphat and the Hebrews knew that they could seek God again. The same is true for us!  As we seek God in these days, the fact that He desires to be a Heavenly Father Figure adds potency to our prayers!
