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

Survival Gear for Dads – Day 3

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:


‘if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land. ‘

2 Chronicles 7:14

‘Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. ‘

Philippians 4:6-7

‘This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. ‘

1 John 5:14

As we jump into our today let’s never forget to start in God’s Word to help prepare us for the day ahead. God’s Word is active and alive and able to speak right into our day! God’s Word never returns void and so let’s not hesitate nor delegate the meditation on God’s Word but rather meditate on it daily as we pray without ceasing!

Let’s be the dads who are called by God’s name! Let’s be the dads who humble ourselves and pray and seek God’s face! Let’s be the dads who turn from our wicked ways so that God will hear from heaven, forgive our sin, and heal our land! Let’s be the dads God created us to be today!

Let’s be the dads who aren’t anxious for anything because in every situation by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving we present our requests to God! Let’s be the dads who walk with the peace of God that transcends all understanding and will guard our hearts and minds in Christ Jesus! Let’s be the dads who can live carefree, unconcerned, and relaxed because we cast all our cares upon God because we know He cares for us! Let’s be the dads who walk in relationship with Jesus rather than allowing the devil to create anxiety, worry, and fear!

Let’s be the dads who are seeking to live our lives in accordance with God’s will! Let’s be the dads who are living our lives in pursuit of God’s will! Let’s be the dads who ask God for something in accordance with His will! Let’s be the dads who are living confidence that God is hearing our prayers! Let’s be the dads who can approach God with confidence because we know, we have faith, we believe that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us!
