The Everlasting Father
As a little girl growing up, I did not have the spiritual guidance of a father who walked with the Lord. I knew my earthly father loved me, but as I grew up and began my relationship with God, I’ve taken a long journey to realizing how very much this God in heaven loves me. The concept of being a daughter of the King of Kings, and having a Father in heaven who’s love for me is unconditional and endless, has taken me some time to understand.

The Prophet Isaiah foretold that Jesus would be called “Everlasting Father” among other things.
Everlasting – eternal, endless, never-ending, abiding, enduring, infinite, boundless, timeless.
When I read the definition of what the word everlasting actually means it sends chills up my spine. Unlike my relationship with my early father, my relationship with my Father in heaven will never end. And better yet, His love for me will never end.
My Father in Heaven, the Everlasting Father, will love me forever, no matter what.
I happened upon this video today, Everlasting Father, by Elevation Worship, and it totally blessed me.
