As a Father Carries His Son

I love the way Moses describes God as he speaks to the people in Deuteronomy 1:29-31:

“Do not be terrified; do not be afraid of them. The Lord your God, who is going before you, will fight for you, as he did for you in Egypt, before your very eyes, and in the wilderness. There you saw how the Lord your God carried you, as a father carries his son, all the way you went until you reached this place.”

I think about the picture of God as Warrior (He fights for us) and God as tender Father (He carries us in His arms). I hold these images in my heart as I leave for the day.
