Being Fathered By God

Being Fathered By God – Day 10

A busy day ahead… Change is in the wind… Being the dad my wife, my kids, and this world needs for me to be.

I found this devotional: Being Fathered By God. The devotional seems very powerful and purposeful as it calls out how “Every man has had authority figures in his life, and much of what a man perceives about God was shaped by those authority figures. His earthly father is at the top of every man’s authority list.” So I took on the offer to join the journey into this devotional. Will you join me on this 14-day journey?

Scripture from Today’s Devotional:


‘Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. ‘

1 John 4:7

God’s Word is powerful! Be it one verse, one chapter, one book, or a series or combination, God’s Word never returns void!

Let’s be the dads who make sure we are filled up to overflowing with God’s love! Let’s be the dads who allow God to pour His love into us! Let’s be the dads who share God’s love by overflowing into the lives of our wives and kids God’s love for us and for them! Let’s be the dads who choose to love others! Let’s be the dads who choose to love other believers for the world will know who we are by our love! Let’s grab hold of what Jesus was telling His disciples and is telling us in John 13 today where it says:

‘ “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” ‘

John 13:34-35

Let’s be the dads who demonstrate we know God by loving our wives, our kids, and our world! Let’s be the dads who demonstrate that we have been born of God by loving our wives, our kids, and our world! Let’s be salt and light into this world by spicing things up with love and brightening things up with love!

Today’s devotional was provided by Michael Thompson where on zoweh.org they share the following: “Every man has had authority figures in his life, and much of what a man perceives about God and projects onto God was shaped by those authority figures. At the top of every man’s authority list is his earthly father. How your dad handled your heart has shaped you and contributed significantly to how you perceive God. Join us for this journey towards experiencing the heart of the Father and getting everything out of the way that is in the way of being a Beloved Son.
