Becoming A Connected Father

Becoming A Connected Father – Day 2

It’s always so interesting to get to read one of the devotionals from Manhood Journey and how they speak to men and especially dads. To have the search yesterday bring me to another Manhood Journey devotional was powerful, especially when the words that were on my mind were “no regrets”.

As I consider the reality of the importance of being the dad God created me to be for my wife’s sake, my kids’ sake, and this world’s sake, living life as Jesus purposed to the full, more abundantly, and without regrets comes to mind. God created us for relationships! God created us to be in a relationship with Him, God created us to be in a relationship with our wives, God created us to be in a relationship with our kids, and God created us to be in a relationship with others! So let’s be the dads who choose to live connected lives so that by being connected with God we can allow God’s love, plan, and purpose to flow into us and through us into the lives of our wives, our kids, and our world!

So with my usual search for the word “dad” and scrolling through a couple of pages, today’s devotional is going to be “Becoming A Connected Father” from Manhood Journey!

Scripture from Today’s Devotional:

‘ Every Scripture is God-breathed (given by His inspiration) and profitable for instruction, for reproof and conviction of sin, for correction of error and discipline in obedience, [and] for training in righteousness (in holy living, in conformity to God’s will in thought, purpose, and action), So that the man of God may be complete and proficient, well fitted and thoroughly equipped for every good work.’

2 Timothy 3:16-17

‘ For we are God’s [own] handiwork (His workmanship), recreated in Christ Jesus, [born anew] that we may do those good works which God predestined (planned beforehand) for us [taking paths which He prepared ahead of time], that we should walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us to live].’

Ephesians 2:10

God’s Word can speak right through whatever we are going through and gets straight to the point! God’s Word never returns void and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting ,and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.

Let’s be the dads who turn to God’s Word for teaching and training! Let’s be the dads who turn to God’s Word for reproof and conviction of sin so that we can stay in alignment with God’s plan and will as well as help our families do the same! Let’s be the dads who turn to God’s Word to correct us and help us in correcting others in a loving and supporting way! Let’s be the dads who turn to God’s Word for training in how to be righteous and more like God in holy living, in conformity to God’s will in thought, purpose, and action! Let’s be the dads who are so focused on God’s Word and making time to meditate and study it because we know that it will help us to become men of God who are becoming complete and proficient, well fitted and thoroughly equipped for every good work! Let’s be the dads who know and live our lives as God’s handiwork! Let’s be the dads who know and live our lives born again, recreated in Christ Jesus! Let’s be the dads who do good for God’s glory, prepared to accomplish the good works He has predestined beforehand for us to accomplish! Let’s be the dads who trust God rather than our understanding, seeking His will and acknowledging Him, so that He can show us which path to take! Let’s be the dads who as we prepare for this day are looking for God’s direction and prompting to help us live the good life, completing the good works He prepared in advance for us to accomplish!
