In the past two years, I have thought about my own mortality a great deal (I am sure we all have), especially in regards to my children. I think about what would happen to them if I died and it scares me. Who could love them like I do? No one! No one could possibly love them as I do!
This morning in our devotions, a verse hit me. We are learning about God’s love for us and the example given was from Deuteronomy where Moses speaks to the people and tells them:
“And because He loved your fathers, therefore He chose their descendants after them; and He brought you out of Egypt with His Presence, with His mighty power.” (Deuteronomy 4:37)
Because he loved your fathers, he brought you out.
How touching to think that because of God’s love for me, he is going to watch out for my children. Even after I die, that love for me will move him to guide them with HIS presence and HIS mighty power.
And so I ask myself again, “Who could love them like I do?”
God can and he will.
