“For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, ‘Abba, Father.’”

When I was a kid, my dad was a car salesman. I remember how my dad would carry his black leather folder with his paperwork inside. I never knew what those papers were all about, but I was fascinated by that thing. He’d put that folder in his hand and walk out of the house in the morning. I had no earthly idea where he went, what he did, or what he said. And when he would come back home, I would welcome him.
I didn’t have to know what he did or how he did it to know him and love him or experience his love for me. He was my daddy. I don’t understand today where God goes when He goes to work, how He flings out the stars, scoops out the oceans, heaps up the mountains, and runs His mighty Universe. There are a lot of things about God I don’t know, and that doesn’t bother me. You don’t have to know all that your Father does for Him to be your Father.
Make a list of reasons God is great and worthy of trust despite the things you can’t know or understand.
