Our Spiritual Mother

The Lord our God is first and foremost our spiritual Father.  But He is also our spiritual Mother.

Genesis 1:27 “Humankind was created as God’s reflection: in the divine image God created them; female and male, God made them.”

Isaiah 66:13  God as a comforting mother

“As a mother comforts her child, so I will comfort you; you shall be comforted in Jerusalem.”

Isaiah 49:15  God compared to a nursing mother

“Can a woman forget her nursing child, or show no compassion for the child of her womb? Even these may forget, yet I will not forget you.”

Isaiah 42:14  God compared to a woman in labor

“For a long time I have held my peace, I have kept myself still and restrained myself; now I will cry out like a woman in labor, I will gasp and pant.”

Psalm 131:2  God as a Mother  A song of David.

 My heart is not proud, Lord, my eyes are not haughty;  I do not concern myself with great matters or things too wonderful for me. But I have calmed and quieted myself, I am like a weaned child with its mother; like a weaned child I am content.

Psalm 27:10  God fulfilling both roles as Father and Mother

Even if my father and mother abandon me, the LORD will hold me close.
