Psalm 27:10 10Although my father and my mother have forsaken me, yet the Lord will take me up [adopt me as His child].

Ephesians 3:15
15For Whom [God] every family in heaven and on earth is named [that Father (God) from Whom all fatherhood takes its title and derives its name].

Ephesians 4:6
6One God and Father of [us] all, Who is above all [Sovereign over all], pervading all and [living] in [us] all.

Isaiah 55:8-9
8For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways, says the Lord. 9For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts.

1 Corinthians 13:4-8
4 [God’s] Love endures long and is patient and kind; love never is envious nor boils over with jealousy, is not boastful or vainglorious, does not display itself haughtily. 5 It is not conceited (arrogant and inflated with pride); it is not rude (unmannerly) and does not act unbecomingly. Love (God’s love in us) does not insist on its own rights or its own way, for it is not self-seeking; it is not touchy or fretful or resentful; it takes no account of the evil done to it [it pays no attention to a suffered wrong]. 6 It does not rejoice at injustice and unrighteousness, but rejoices when right and truth prevail. 7 [God’s] Love bears up under anything and everything that comes, is ever ready to believe the best of every person, its hopes are fadeless under all circumstances, and it endures everything [without weakening]. 8 [God’s] Love never fails [never fades out or becomes obsolete or comes to an end]. …

Ephesians 3:17-19
17 May [Jesus] Christ through your faith actually dwell (settle down, abide, make His permanent home) in your hearts! May you be rooted deep in love and founded securely on love, 18 That you may have the power and be strong to apprehend and grasp with all the saints [God’s devoted people], the experience of that love, what is the breadth and length and height and depth of it; 19 [That you may really come] to know [practically, through experience for yourselves] the love of [Jesus] Christ, which far surpasses mere knowledge; that you may be filled [through all your being] unto all the fullness of God [that you may have the richest measure of the divine Presence, and become a person wholly filled and flooded with God Himself]!

God sees our intentions as clearly as He sees the actions which result from our choices and decisions.

Psalm 27:10 indicates that the writer’s parents abandoned him. Only God knows if the writer’s parents planned to leave him ― they made a decision to leave him ― or if they had not planned on leaving him.

Perhaps the writer’s parents died, and if he was a little child when his parents died, he didn’t understand that death was not their choice. To a child, death feels like abandonment.

Perhaps your parents, being human, really did abandon you. Even if they didn’t physically abandon you, but emotionally abandoned you, that still qualifies as abandonment.

Regardless of the circumstances of your life, you can be comforted in this verse from the Old Testament of the Bible: “Although my father and my mother have forsaken me, yet the Lord will take me up [adopt me as His child].”

One truth appears throughout the New Testament of the Bible — the fact that God has adopted you has already occurred.

In Psalms, the writer says that “the Lord will” adopt him. Throughout the New Testament, the writers all counsel that He already has.

Romans 8:38-39
38 For I am persuaded beyond doubt (am sure) that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities, nor things impending and threatening nor things to come, nor powers, 39 Nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation will be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
