Psalm 68 NIV
[4] Sing to God, sing in praise of his name, extol him who rides on the clouds ; rejoice before him—his name is the Lord. [5] A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling. [6] God sets the lonely in families, he leads out the prisoners with singing; but the rebellious live in a sun-scorched land.

A father to the fatherless – here is a wonderful promise! What is God like? He is like a father should be when we are in need of help, encouragement and guidance – full of love and with our best in mind! And where has he chosen to show that character? In his holy dwelling – when we come together, God meets with us and sets us in his family!

Father God, I wonder how I managed to exist without the knowledge of your fatherhood
And your loving care.
