Today’s Promise : I am God and Father over all creation
Ephesians 4:6 (WEB)
one God and Father of all, who is over all,
and through all, and in us all.
The Apostle Paul tells us in today’s promise that the Fatherhood of God is the absolute foundation of all that exists in the universe. To grasp the context of this promise, let’s read Ephesians 4:4-6 in the World English Bible… 4 There is one body, and one Spirit, even as you also were called in one hope of your calling; 5 one Lord, one faith, one baptism, 6 one God and Father of all, who is over all, and through all, and in us all.

In a world where there is so much instability, it is comforting to be reassured that there is only One God and Father of us all. Our God is the source of all things. While creating is something that He does, Father is who He truly is. All life as we know it comes from His fathering heart.
The Apostle Paul says in Acts 17:28 that we are all His offspring through creation and then Paul goes on to explain how God wants us to become His children through the gift of redemption in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. When everything else in life seems to shift around, be encouraged to know that there is one God and Father over all creation and He loves for you to call Him your Abba!
15 For you didn’t receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!” 16 The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are children of God; 17 and if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint heirs with Christ; if indeed we suffer with him, that we may also be glorified with him.
