Heavenly Father

Hear, ye children, the instruction of a father, and attend to know understanding. For I give you good doctrine, forsake ye not my law. Proverbs 4:1-2

One of the greatest downfalls of our society today is the diminished role of the Father. Even if you research it in Psychology, the Father has the greatest influence of the emotional development of a child. The lack of Fathers has created a Pandemic in our society today. There are many reasons as to why this has happened, however the results are catastrophic to the foundation of society

When we look at the Bible, The Father was meant to be the “Spiritual Leader” of the home. The one to guide his family and to lean on during tough times. However most men have either abandoned their role as Father or have become lazy and distracted. The role of the Father is a high calling just like a Mother, however many men have not taken the role seriously.

Of course in order for a Father to share wisdom, they need to obtain wisdom themselves. As the old saying goes “You cant give what you don’t have” If you don’t have any wisdom how can you share wisdom? A Spiritually healthy Father needs to remain close to God to be receiving that Heavenly wisdom

For I was my father’s son, tender and only beloved in the sight of my mother. He taught me also, and said unto me, Let thine heart retain my words: keep my commandments, and live. Proverbs 4:3-4

Now we live in a broken world, so many of us might not have or had a great Earthly Father. Maybe they abandoned you or let you down. The good news is you have a Heavenly Father that will never leave or forsake You. God is your Father and one day through Christ you will spend eternity with Him

Now us Earthly Fathers, obviously we are not perfect, were going to make mistakes. However strive to do your best, be the best man for your Father and they will love you anyway. Follow the wisdom of God, let the Holy Spirit lead and guide you in all decisions, build your house upon the Rock Jesus Christ! Amen!

Happy Fathers Day

So he got up and came to his father. But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and felt compassion for him, and ran and embraced him and kissed him. Luke 15:20

This weekend we celebrate Father’s Day, this is one of my favorite holidays because being a Father myself, I take great pride and honor in being a Father. I think it’s a role, that in modern day society likes to mock and dishonor. But I think taking on the role as a Father, is the greatest privilege and responsibility and glad God chose me to fulfill it!

When I think about being a Father and what does God expect from us, I reflect on the story of The Prodigal Son (Luke 15:11-31) Even though his son was rebellious and ungrateful, The Father still provided for the son and was merciful and compassionate with love. The Son eventually returned home and instead of The Father being filled anger, he welcomed his son with open arms and showed him true love and mercy.

This is the same relationship we can have with God our Heavenly Father. Even though at times we have been rebellious and ungrateful, God still provided Jesus to save us from our sins. And when we accept Jesus and come running back to God our Father, he greets us with open arms also not condemnation.

I want to say Thank you to my father, and thank you to my father in laws, for being great examples for me and always showing me love and mercy. I pray that I can be the best Father for my children, and show them the love and compassion throughout their entire lives in Jesus Name Amen

 

Happy Fathers Day

For I have chosen him, so that he will direct his children and his household after him to keep the way of the LORD by doing what is right and just Genesis 18:19

Just as God has chosen Abraham to be the Father of many nations, God has chosen us to be the Father of our Children also. This is not something we should take for granted our lightly. It’s honor God has chosen me to be a Father of two amazing boys, it’s a responsibility I take to heart.

These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Deuteronomy 6:6-7

Its our responsibility as Fathers and Men of God to teach our Children about God and his Word. We live in a world where God has been removed from public, schools, offices, ect. If we don’t teach our Children about God , nobody else is going to.  Lay the foundation for a successful life for them.

Children are a heritage from the LORD, offspring a reward from him. Psalms 127:3

The world likes to portray Fatherhood as a death trap, but the truth is to be a Father is a blessing from God. For Abraham waited almost 100 years to have his promised son Isaac, any man who has a child has received favor from God. Don’t squander your blessing, be the Godhead of your family as you were chosen to be.

Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6

As a Father its our responsibility not only to teach our children about God, but teach them right from wrong. Teach them how to walk with integrity, teach them responsibility, teach them love and compassion. When you instill morals and values into your Children they will not depart from it.

But as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD. Joshua 24:15

The world may have removed God but we as Fathers control our house. Make sure your house is serving God, make sure your Children are growing up knowing God and learning morals and values. Teach your Children how to pray and be thankful for all they have received.

As a Father I feel God has blessed me more than I could have ever imagined, I hope all you Fathers feel the same way and Thank God for your blessings in Jesus Name Amen
