God Wants to Be the Best Father You Could Ever Have
There has been a lie sown into our society that fathers are not needed. The only people who would teach such a fallacy would be those who either did not have a father or had an abusive one. Because no one who has experienced the blessings of a good father would say such a thing.
And God is the best Father you could ever have!
If fathers are not important then why was this the number one thing Jesus taught us about? Because He knows the truth, that fathers are critically important in our lives, and mostly our Father in heaven.
He told us to pray to the Father, that no one could get to the Father except through Him, and that if you have seen Him you have seen the Father. Jesus came to reveal the Father to us and to bring us home to the Father. Praise God!
But if you do not know what the Father is like, in all His beauty, you will not want to draw close to Him. That is why it is so important for you to read the Bible and get to know Him. The more you do, the more you will enjoy His Presence, and the more confident you will be in life because you will know that your Dad has your back!
Here is a small sample of what the Bible has to say about God as your Father:
“The Lord works righteousness and justice for all the oppressed. He made known his ways to Moses, his deeds to the people of Israel. The Lord is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love. He will not always accuse, nor will he harbor his anger forever; he does not treat us as our sins deserve or repay us according to our iniquities. For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his love for those who fear him; as far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us. As a father has compassion on his children, so the Lord has compassion on those who fear him; for he knows how we are formed, he remembers that we are dust.” Psalm 103:6-14 NIV
One of my favorite things in life is the daily walk one of my daughters and I take together. We talk about everything. I know how important my presence, attention, care, and wisdom are for her. I want to be the best father I can to her, for her sake.
God wants to do the same for us.
In these difficult times, you need to know that you are not alone. That your Father is with you, hears you, has the wisdom to give to you, and will take care of you.
Spend time with Him every day. He will love it.
