As kids, a question we were often asked was, "What does your Daddy do?" Well, for several years, our Dad was a mechanic on the city buses in Atlanta. From going out on service calls to repair disabled buses, he came to know the city streets like the back of his hand. When I grew up and began to drive, I knew I could call Daddy for directions to anywhere in metro Atlanta.
As children of God, we need to
know exactly what it is that our Heavenly Father does. We also need to be
CONFIDENT that He is on our side. He will help us when we call.
I want to tell you a story to show my point.
I was six years old, our class took a field trip on the bus to Grant
Park Zoo in Atlanta. I was excited on my first trip to the zoo and I ran
ahead and entered the Lion House. Back then, the lions were
housed in small cages. I walked right up to the bars of the cage, and
the lion let out a ROAR that echoed through that stone building. I will never forget that deafening sound that paralyzed me with fear!
we face circumstances that are so overwhelming that we are afraid to stand up and do what we
know is right. God gave me a picture that if I would stop running away
from problems and stand up and face fear, that a hundred angels would
stand up with me. Even better than that, my Savior Jesus stands with me,
and He is the Lion of the tribe of Judah! Judah means PRAISE. Even when
I feel uncertain, as I begin to praise, with my small voice, I have a
Heavenly Choir of back-up singers.
Now, back to my question. What does my Heavenly Father do? He's a doctor, a
lawyer, a righteous judge, a builder, a warrior, a singer, a dancer, a
first responder, a counselor and best friend, just to name a few. He is
always on my side, He answers when I call, and He knows which way I
should go. His perfect love casts out fear. It is the only thing that
