Being Fathered By God

Being Fathered By God – Day 4

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 for Today’s Devotional:

1 John 4:18


‘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 knows just what to say! God’s Word knows just how to say it! So let’s meditate on God’s Word in advance to start our day and receive His direction, His instruction, and His truth!


Let’s be the dads who choose to live in love! Let’s be the dads who choose to be so filled with God’s love that we live lives that overflow love into the lives of our wives! Let’s be the dads who choose to be so filled with God’s love that we live lives that overflow love into the lives of our kids! Let’s be the dads who choose to be so filled with God’s love that we live lives that overflow love into the lives in our world! Let’s be so filled with love that there is no room for fear! Let’s be so filled with love and so connected to God that any fear gets driven out by love! Let’s be so filled with love that we allow God’s love to perfect us and break the chains of fear and punishment from us! Let’s be focused on God and His love so we don’t get stuck in a place of fear and punishment! Let’s be so focused on God and His love that we overflow that love into the world around us because we can see how they are living in fear and even responding out of fear!


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.
