We all experience setbacks in our lives, and sometimes, those moments can be very lonely. Today, Jeff Cavins shares his own story and the stories of others to help us understand the love that God the Father has for each one of us and how he is always present to us.
Snippet from the Show
No matter what you’ve been through, God will never give up on you.
“As a father shows compassion to his children, so the LORD shows compassion to those who fear him. For he knows our frame; he remembers that we are dust. As for man, his days are like grass; he flourishes like a flower of the field; for the wind passes over it, and it is gone, and its place knows it no more. But the steadfast love of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear him, and his righteousness to children’s children.”
2 Corinthians 6:18
“And I will be a father to you, and you shall be sons and daughters to me,
says the Lord Almighty.”
“Then you shall say to Pharaoh, ‘Thus says the LORD, Israel is my firstborn son.”
2 Samuel 7:14-15
“I will be a father to him, and he’ll be a son to me. When he does wrong, I’ll discipline him in the usual ways, the pitfalls and obstacles of this mortal life. But I’ll never remove my gracious love from him.”
“But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion for him; he ran to his son, threw his arms around him, and kissed him.”
1 John 3:1
“See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!”
“What do you think? If a man owns a hundred sheep, and one of them wanders away, will he not leave the ninety-nine on the hills and go to look for the one that wandered off? And if he finds it, truly I tell you, he is happier about that one sheep than about the ninety-nine that did not wander off. In the same way, your Father in heaven is not willing that any of these little ones should perish.”
