So yesterday concluded a chapter in my life that was an amazing experience. Yesterday was also the end of the devotional The Father’s Legacy. Today is a new day with a new topic to dig into The Heart Of The Father | Devotional Reading Plan | YouVersion Bible. My search for dad devotionals brought this one to the surface for our next study and I am looking forward to hearing and learning from God through this devotional. The introduction caught my attention too as it points to our hearts when things are challenging and what lies the devil to speak that we are vulnerable to accept as truth. We need to be the dads who trust God and persevere! We need to be the dads who know that God is for us and not against us! We need to be the dads who know that God’s plans for us are for good and not for evil, to give us hope and a future! We need to be the dads who know that God’s plans for us should give us life and life more abundantly whereas the devil’s plans are to rob, kill, and destroy us! So let’s grab hold of the author of our devotional’s prayer for each of us, that we will have a revelation of the Father’s heart for each of us!


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


‘For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. ‘

John 3:16-17

‘The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. ‘

John 10:10

‘There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. ‘

1 John 4:18

God’s Word is so amazing to me as it speaks to me each day right where I am at and what I need to receive the hope, the truth, the energy, and the life to go out and live out today to the full. Let’s be the dads who realize how much God loves us! Let’s be the dads who realize God loves us so much that He gave! God is so generous that He gave sacrificially because He loves us! Let’s be the dads who realize that God is looking to live in relationship with us and provide us a way through Jesus to be able to spend all of eternity with Him! Let’s be the dads who choose to start our relationship with Him through Jesus Christ on this side of eternity and live out our lives with Jesus not only as our savior but our Lord! Let’s be the dads who grab onto the reality of why Jesus came! Let’s be the dads who receive the truth that Jesus came to save us, not condemn us! Let’s be the dads who choose to live out our lives in a way that will bring God the praise, the honor, and the glory just like Jesus did to glorify the Father! Let’s be the dads who realize there is good and evil out there! Let’s be the dads who realize the devil has plans that will try to rob us, stealing what God has prepared, planned, and even given us! Let’s be the dads who realize that the devil has plans to kill us and tries to trip us up through lies and deception to walk away from God rather than moving closer to Him when things get tough! Let’s be the dads who realize that the devil has plans to destroy us through temptation and lies that will draw us away from God and cause us to live out lives that will lead us into the pits of hell rather than eternity in heaven with God! Let’s be the dads who choose to reject and resist the devil so that he will flee and grab hold of the truth of God that He desires for us to have life and life to the full! Let’s be the dads who choose life with Jesus in order that we can have life and live it out on this side and the other side of eternity in abundance, to the full, and till it overflows! Let’s be the dads who are filled with love! Let’s be the dads who spend time with God in order to get filled with love to overflowing! Let’s be the dads who spend and meditate on God and His Word to the point that we are filled up to overflowing with His love, His grace, and His mercy as we step into each day! Let’s be the dads who grab hold of the reality that there is no fear in love! Let’s be the dads who grab hold of the reality that perfect love casts out or drives out fear! Let’s be the dads who grab hold of the reality that fear has to do with punishment and we know why God sent Jesus and it was to seek and save the lost! So today, let’s be the dads who are filled with and live in love so that we don’t end up having fears that allow the devil to take hold and manipulate us and our lives!
