Max Lucado – God is a Father to the Fatherless


Listen to Today’s Devotion

Psalm 34:8 says, “Taste and see that the Lord is good.”  A glimpse of God’s goodness changes us.  If He is only slightly stronger than us, why pray?  If He has limitations, questions, and hesitations, then you might as well pray to the Wizard of Oz.

Psalm 68:5-6 says that God is  “a father to the fatherless.  He sets the solitary in families; He brings out those who are bound into prosperity.”

Will you pray this with me?  Dear God, today, remind me that you protect me.  Be my father and defender.  Defend those who’re weak and afraid and feel forgotten.  Show up in their lives today. Thank you for giving me a spiritual family that can never be taken away.  I pray this in the name of Jesus, amen.

At any point you’re only a prayer away from help!
