God, as Father, reigns over all of His universe with providential care.
He is all-powerful, all loving, all-knowing, and all-wise.
He is fatherly in attitude toward all men but is Father, indeed,
to those who have become children of God
through Jesus Christ, who will deliver them into the Father’s hands.
