As I think what some of these families are enduring this very day because they have obeyed God, tears come to my eyes. My heart goes out to them as they face another day ONLY by His grace!
His grace…a topic for another day!
No, adoption is not easy! But when He calls us to do something He will equip us to do it and He uses all of us to do this. His plan is not for us to walk this life alone, but rather to depend on each other to gain the encouragement to persevere to the end.
If God has not called you to adopt, He has called you to ‘care for the fatherless’. Will you commit to pray for a family that is called to adopt? Your life will be changed and blessed beyond measure as you pray for those who adopt and foster.
There are many ways you can obey God’s call to ‘care for the fatherless’.
Will you ask God to show you how you, personally, are to fulfill His command to ‘care for the fatherless’?
Learn to do good. Seek justice. Help the oppressed. Defend the cause of orphans. Fight for the rights of widows. Isaiah 1:17
