When we’re hurting or facing a difficult or frightening challenge, we can feel vulnerable, isolated, and maybe even abandoned. This sense of aloneness can make everything feel so much harder. But, our confidence and assurance grows when we recognize that God, our Abba Father, is standing beside us, immovable.

He’s everything good that’s missing in all those dads who let their kids down. And He’s everything good displayed by the most honorable and attentive human fathers. This reality, when fully understood and relied on, can quiet our greatest fears.
