Becoming A Connected Father–Day 7

As we get to day 7, a week has gone by, God’s plan and desire for us aren’t to give us a spirit of timidity or cowardice or fear but rather He has given us a spirit of power and of love and of sound judgment and personal discipline with abilities that result in a calm, well-balanced mind and self-control! So as we finish up the week, knowing tomorrow will close out the devotional, let’s lean in on God and the Spirit so that we can finish strong! Let’s choose to receive the spirit of power and live it! Let’s choose to receive the spirit of sound judgment! Let’s choose to receive the spirit of personal discipline! Let’s choose to live in it, walking out today with God in order to finish the good works He has prepared in advance for us to accomplish!

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. 

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!

Today’s Scriptures from the Devotional:

‘ Come now, and let us reason together, says the Lord. Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be like wool.’

Isaiah 1:18

‘ Not so shall it be among you; but whoever wishes to be great among you must be your servant, And whoever desires to be first among you must be your slave– Just as the Son of Man came not to be waited on but to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for many [the price paid to set them free].’

Matthew 20:26-28

God’s Word is so key to helping us become who God created us to be! God’s Word is so important to help us make the right decisions to be able to live our lives to the full! God’s Word can speak to us right where we are at, right here, right now, today!

Let’s be the dads who receive Jesus as our Lord and Savior, who was foretold to be coming to cleanse us from all unrighteousness! Let’s be the dads who choose to receive and walk out our lives with Jesus in order to hear His instructions through the Holy Spirit! Let’s be the dads who are living our lives to serve our wives! Let’s be the dads who are living our lives to serve our kids! Let’s be the dads who are living our lives as servant leaders so that others may also come to know Jesus and be able to live their lives in accordance with God’s plan of hope and a future and so they can receive Jesus’ purpose for coming that we can live this life to the full! Let’s be the dads who choose to live our lives as living sacrifices to God! Let’s be the dads who live our lives with the freedom Jesus paid for and gives us today!
