A father of the fatherless, a defender of widows, Is God in His Holy habitation. – Psalms 68:5
A father acts as a covering to his children, he protects them from harm of any sort, that is why when a child loses a father, it at times so painful when a gap of insecurity and loneliness sets in. But God says he is the father to the fatherless, he fills the gap and loneliness that was created and makes you more secured and satisfied in life.
Likewise a husband is the defender of the wife and the head and captain on the family. If the husband dies, the wife is left seemingly defenseless and confused, howver the bible makes us to understand that God is the defender of that widowed woman, he is the protector or her home and affairs.
What lesson do we learn from the above? God is always there in times of need and despair, when all hope is lost, when our strength is weak and we have come to the end of ourselves, He is always there for us. When all we had has left us at the middle of the ocean, He is there for us, He is an ever present help in times of need.
Jesus for life !!!!
