My Father Can Be Your Father! – Day 6

My Father Can Be Your Father!

It amazes me how fast time goes and how quickly we are flying through dad devotionals this year. Today will bring this devotional to a close and so I will look to find our next one afterwards.

Will we choose God? Will we choose God’s way? Will we choose God’s will? Will we choose God’s purpose? Will we choose God’s plan? God is precise and knows what He is doing! God is the God of details! Consider His plans for getting out of Egypt! Consider His plans for the tabernacle! Consider His plans for the temple! Consider His plans for the holy items in them both! Consider His placement within them both! God knows what He is doing and as I went looking for the next devotional and gain approval to use it, I discovered it will fit in this month. It’s going to speak to us about the importance of a father being present. So as we get ready to jump in let’s choose to be the dads that our wives, our kids, and this world needs for us to be! Let’s be the dads who are able to pour out unconditional love!

Today’s devotional gets us started with the following verses:

‘But now, this is what the Lord says— he who created you, Jacob, he who formed you, Israel: “Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze. For I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior; I give Egypt for your ransom, Cush and Seba in your stead. ‘

Isaiah 43:1-3

God’s Word is so powerful! God’s Word is so timely! God’s Word is alive! Let’s be the dads who take time to meditate and receive what God has to say to us through His Word daily! Today’s Word gives us a message from God about how He is our redeemer, has called us by name and that we are His! Let’s be the dads who accept and receive Jesus as our redeemer so that we can live out our lives redeemed! Let’s be the dads who hear and receive the call God has given us as He has called us by name! Let’s be the dads who find hope and love and joy because we are His children and His friend! Let’s be the dads who trust God and don’t try to go it alone! Let’s be the dads who hold tight to the reality that when we are going through something He is with us and He is protecting us through it all! Let’s be the dads who remember that be it the rushing water of a river or the heat of the fire when we walk our lives with God, He will keep the water from sweeping over us and the fire from burning us, and the flames from setting us ablaze! Let’s be the dads who have accepted and received Jesus as our Lord and Savior! Let’s be the dads who choose to walk out our lives as living sacrifices to our loving Heavenly Father so that when people see our good works they will glorify Him!
