What would God’s family do if God the father abandons us or forsakes us? What if he left us alone? The church family would be totally lost without the guidance and care of the Father’s gentle hands. The rains would cease and the crops would stop growing, in the final analysis the world would be in a sorry state.
Let’s bring it closer to home. How tragic it is when a Father of a human family forsakes or abandons His family and does not follow through on the lifelong commitment he made to support, uphold and guide that family for the rest of his natural life. Father’s abandoning their families is a rampant tragedy in America and has become accepted as the norm in our American culture. Deuteronomy 31:8 “It is the LORD who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not leave you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed.” God will never forsake or abandon his family always being there to guide and comfort us in our daily walk with him.
We know we can trust and depend on him to support us and meet all of our needs. God is faithful and will not negate his responsibility to us. Fathers of America let us stand up and take our rightful place as the spiritual priests and leaders of our home. Let’s stop the enemies attack on the institution of the family. This onslaught is tearing families apart; leaving mother’s with the overburdening task of being the father and the mother in the home, a role she was not created to be, and leaving children scarred and angry because there was no father there to love and nurture them. I exhort fathers of America to stop being absentee Fathers because you are too valuable to be missing in action.
