Definition of FATHER
: a male parent: a man who is thought of as being like a father
Jesus, You are our EVERLASTING FATHER! You endure for all time! The ESV Study Bible says "A "father" here is a benevolent protector (Isaiah 22:21; Job 29:16), which is the task of the ideal king and is also the way God himself cares for His people. That is, this is not using the Trinitarian title "Father' for the Messiah; rather, it is portraying Him as a King". Jesus, You are a Father to me - my protector and the One who cares for me!! You are the One that Isaiah was pointing to as the King of Kings who would reign forever! I worship You Jesus!
Worship and praise Jesus as the EVERLASTING FATHER!
(Have you run to Jesus as the One who cares and protects?)
