The Mother Heart of the Father God

By Pastor Nilo Briones

As we unfold the chronicle of events this year, the month of May traditionally marks the meaningful celebration of the Mother’s Day. It surely is worth celebrating as we share the blissful joy of mothers, who are co-partners of God in raising up healthy and responsible children in the family and the society as a whole. There’s a proverbial saying that, “In every man’s success, there are always two women behind – a wife and a mother.” It may not always be the actual scenario in a man’s life, but the saying can be counted justifiable and true.

I am blessed by the Scriptural truth that there is a mother heart to our Almighty Father. God says, “As a mother comforts her child, so I will comfort you; and you will be comforted…” How could it be probable? Well, let’s go back to the book of Genesis in the beginning of time when God created man. In His own image, He created male and female. God is Spirit but He shared the masculine and feminine traits to humanity.
Love, for example, is the quintessence personifying God’s character. His love for man far exceeds human understanding. It is the major theme of the Scripture, and God expressed it not only being the Father of creation but also in ways that can be understood in maternal care. Even when man sins again and again to the extent that God must destroy him, still he loves him. Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail and great is His faithfulness – they are new every morning as the Bible declares.

While God has character traits that He does not share with humanity (such as being all-knowing, all-powerful, and self-existent), we can see His shared attribute of love in humanity, even though it is distorted by sin. And reflecting our thoughts of a mother’s love, how gracious it is to experience God comforting us as we go through trials and tribulations in life. Just like a mother caressing her crying child, God’s mercy comforts and strengthens us in times when our hearts are afflicted and filled with tears. As a mother shush a troubled child, so does God quiet us with hope that everything is alright as He is in sovereign control.
