“But none saith, Where is God my maker, who giveth songs in the night;” Job 35:10
“I am my beloved’s, and his desire is toward me.” SOS 7:10.
“Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.” John 15:13.
“But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” Rom. 5:8
“And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love: and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.” 1John 4:16.
No matter what the circumstances life throws at us, we can be assured the heavenly Father loves us. He proved it on the cross of Jesus Christ. What more must He do to convince us?
Most who read this know my mom is afflicted with dementia. It is a hard unrelenting disease that steals a person’s mind. But it cannot steal the spirit that has been born again.
As I, my daughter, my brother, and my husband minister to the needs of Mom and many others minister to us in prayer, the road oftentimes is hard as many of you know for you have faced it too. But the Father sustains us all. He tells us in 1Corinthians 10:13:
“There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.”
He is our escape, our strength, our hope, our song in the night. In fact, His “Luv-a-by” to me is the song, “How Deep the Father’s Love For Us”, by Stuart Townsend. If you have a minute you can hear it on YouTube. It’s not the only song He gives me in the night but it is the song He has awakened me to in the past week when things have been especially hard.
May we all rejoice,
“to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fullness of God.” Eph. 3. 19.
Does the Father ever wake you with a song? If so, share it with us.
And may you walk in the full knowledge of the Beloved’s love for you.
