God ‘sets’ us in a family cluster

June 20

“A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling.  God sets the lonely in families, he leads forth the prisoners with singing.”  Psalm 68: 5,6. 

The fatherless, widows, and the lonely are those who experienced loss of significant people in their lives.  God who created you cares about every detail in your life.  He is sensitive to your needs.  He understands pain, rejection, family challenges, and even separation.  Jesus was separated from His Heavenly Father while He was on the cross. 

When Jesus was about to die on the cross He looked at His mother Mary weeping in emotional agony and He cared even through His pain.  “When Jesus saw his mother there, and the disciple whom he loved standing nearby, he said to his mother, ‘Dear woman, here is your son,’ and to the disciple, ‘Here is your mother.’ From that time on, this disciple took her into his home.’”  John 19:26-27.  He gave Mary, His mother, a new son – John.  He knew she would be loved, cared for, and supported. God ‘sets’ us in a family cluster, that is chosen by Him.

“God sets the lonely in families, he leads forth the prisoners with singing.” Psalm 68:6. In the right family cluster of a local Church you will be taught, empowered, receive care, and have the opportunity to serve God with singing. As a member of His Royal Family, He ‘sets’ us in earthly family clusters for relationship, interaction, teaching, help, encouragement, and human involvement. As He did for Mary, so will Jesus do for you.
