Survival Gear for Dads + 7-day Reading Plan by Manhood Journey

Survival Gear for Dads – Day 2

It is amazing to me how quickly time flies and getting to look through various dad devotionals helps me grab hold of and make the most of each day. After a week of grabbing onto Love Slows Down, I did a search to discover what the next devotional series would be and found Survival Gear for Dads | Devotional Reading Plan | YouVersion Bible. Ever found it hard to be a godly dad? Ever found it exhausting to be a godly dad? Ever found it challenging to be a godly dad? Ever found it thrilling to be a godly dad? Ever found it confusing to be a godly dad? Ever found it rewarding to be a godly dad? As today’s devotional tells us “Being a godly father is an exhausting, challenging, thrilling, dangerous, confusing, and rewarding endeavor. It’s both a place you are and a journey you’re on. It’s a destination you arrive at and a process of becoming.” I am excited to get to read another devotional from the Manhood Journey and to read that this plan “will help you gear up for the journey, get a sense of where you are right now, and what steps to take next.” So let’s get into it and see what we can learn and what tools we can add to our toolbelt to be a part of our survival gear for this journey of being a godly dad!


Let’s check out our scriptures for today’s devotional:


‘I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you. ‘

Psalms 119:11

‘Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path. ‘

Psalms 119:105

‘All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, ‘

2 Timothy 3:16

Every day I wake up and wonder what God is going to do today. Every day I start by turning to His Word! God’s Word is active and alive! God’s Word is available and accessible for us to use and reference to get through life! God’s Word is something we should meditate on and memorize. Let’s check out what the verses that related to today’s devotional tell us!

Let’s be the dads who store up God’s Word in our hearts so that when we are faced with having to make a decision we won’t sin against God! Let’s be the dads who write God’s Word in our hearts and allow the Holy Spirit to live in our hearts and invite Jesus into our hearts! Let’s be the dads who focus on God’s Word daily!

Let’s be the dads who use the Word of God as a light unto our path so that we can see beyond our feet and be able to step out in faith, trusting God even when we can’t see that far ahead! Let’s be the dads who aren’t walking around, stumbling around, and bumping into everything because we spend time in the Word and we walk in alignment with the Word so that not only will we glorify God by pursuing His will and His way but will also will receive the desires of our heart that are so aligned and in pursuit of what God has prepared in advance for us!
