Daring Dads of the Bible – Day 1

Time again to start the search for a devotional that can speak to dads. The topic of today’s devotional sounded interesting and yet I was challenged as I tried to do more research as the site about the publisher was having some issues and so I haven’t been able to check it out fully yet. My internet searches seem to imply that today’s devotional is connected to the Abide app that is described on the site as the devotional plan is an audio devotional and so doesn’t have much content within the Bible Plan. The subject is still very interesting and applicable to us dads today as it speaks to the changing times and how dads of the bible can help us in our situations today.

Scripture for Today’s Devotional:

‘This is the account of Noah and his family. Noah was a righteous man, the only blameless person living on earth at the time, and he walked in close fellowship with God. ‘

Genesis 6:9

God’s Word never returns void and is always ready to speak to us about what we are facing or going through!

Let’s be the dads who seek to know God and be known by Him! Let’s be the dads who just and righteous! Let’s be the dads who live our lives in alignment to God’s purpose, plan, and Word, receiving Jesus as our Lord and Savior and walking out each day with the Holy Spirit as our comforter and our guide! Let’s be the dads who walk in close fellowship with God!

Today’s devotional has been provided to us by Abide Prayer!
