A Dad Named Jairus - An Awesome Marriage Plan

A Dad Named Jairus – Day 4

It’s an interesting week where Day 4 for me is the end of my workweek and tomorrow is a day to get trained up, inspired, and filled up. Our devotional finishes today with Day 4. Let’s be the dads who try to make the most of every day! Let’s be the dads who are reading through this devotional and see what we can learn through the story and life of Jairus as it applies to us and our lives!


Scripture from Today’s Devotional:

‘ Now to Him Who, by (in consequence of) the [action of His] power that is at work within us, is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly, far over and above all that we [dare] ask or think [infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams]–’

Ephesians 3:20

‘ But He gives us more and more grace (power of the Holy Spirit, to meet this evil tendency and all others fully). That is why He says, God sets Himself against the proud and haughty, but gives grace [continually] to the lowly (those who are humble enough to receive it). [Prov. 3:34.] So be subject to God. Resist the devil [stand firm against him], and he will flee from you. Come close to God and He will come close to you. [Recognize that you are] sinners, get your soiled hands clean; [realize that you have been disloyal] wavering individuals with divided interests, and purify your hearts [of your spiritual adultery]. [As you draw near to God] be deeply penitent and grieve, even weep [over your disloyalty]. Let your laughter be turned to grief and your mirth to dejection and heartfelt shame [for your sins]. Humble yourselves [feeling very insignificant] in the presence of the Lord, and He will exalt you [He will lift you up and make your lives significant].’

James 4:6-10

God’s Word is the same yesterday, today, and forever. God’s Word is active and alive! So let’s allow God’s Word to speak into our lives today so that we can live our lives to the full, we can live our lives for our good, and we can live our lives for the glory of God!

Let’s be the dads who have invited Jesus into our hearts and lives! Let’s be the dads who are allowing the Holy Spirit to transform us from the inside out because we know that from the overflow of the heart, the mouth speaks! Let’s be the dads who never stop learning, never stop leaning on God, and never stop trusting God! Let’s be the dads who are pursuing God and being sensitive to His Spirit so that we can do the good works He prepared in advance for us to accomplish! Let’s be the dads who are leaning on God because we know from His Word that He is working out His purpose in us that is superabundantly, far over and above all that we dare ask or think; infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams! Let’s be the dads who desire what God desires! Let’s be the dads who seek God for wisdom and discernment to make it through our day!

Let’s be the dads who are ready to receive God’s grace! Let’s be the dads who are ready to receive the power of the Holy Spirit, to meet this evil tendency and all others fully that will come our way! Let’s be the dads who aren’t proud or haughty because we know that God sets Himself against the proud and haughty! Let’s be the dads who are humble and lowly because we know that God gives grace continually to the lowly and those who are humble enough to receive it! Let’s be the dads who are subject to God and resist the devil! Let’s be the dads who stand firm against the devil because we know that when we resist the devil he will flee! Let’s be the dads who choose to draw closer to God because we know He will draw closer to us! Let’s be the dads who realize who we are with and without Jesus, as today’s scripture tells us: “‘Recognize that you are sinners, get your soiled hands clean; realize that you have been disloyal wavering individuals with divided interests, and purify your hearts of your spiritual adultery.’ James 4:8“! Let’s be the dads who draw near to God with the right heart and spirit, being deeply penitent and grieving, even weeping over your disloyalty! Let’s be the dads who come humbly before God because we know and can trust Him and that He has a plan and at the right time He will lift us up!
