Many children grow up without their fathers and this has a direct effect on how they perceiveGod. If their fathers are distant and they hardly see or speak to their fathers, they will see God in the same light. Our earthly fathers are supposed to be a representation of God’s love towards us. Unfortunately, this is not the case nowadays. There are many teenage girls who turn to alcohol, drugs and older men to fill the void of their father. Teenage boys will often turn to the wrong crowds and ruin their lives for good. What we don’t realise is the fact that as much as God has a plan for our lives, so does the enemy. The enemy does this by first tearing apart the most important foundation in your life: family. John 10:10 of the Bible reads “The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they
may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, until it overflows).”  The best part about being part of God’s family is that He is always a step ahead of the enemy! It doesn’t matter which cards you’ve been dealt in life;with God on your side there is nothing you cannot overcome. There is nothing in your life God cannot revive. We need to stop turning to outside sources for comfort and joy. We need to use everything that has happened in our lives, and place it into God’s hands. We should allow Him to turn it into goodso that we can be the people He created us to be!“All things work together for good for those that love God.”

 

 Psalm 27:10 reads: “When my father and my mother forsake me, the Lord will take me up.” Let us stop being victims of the enemy’s wicked plans and get into the habit of hiding in the shadow of His wings.
