Eyes on Jesus – Day 3

Eyes On Jesus - 14-day discernment devotional By Tim Ferrara from Discerning Dad

I woke up this morning with the thought of how important it is to pray for others. Yes, we are to pray without ceasing but we don’t have to talk to God only about ourselves. Let’s be the dads who pray for our wives! Let’s be the dads who pray for our kids! Let’s be the dads who pray for our world!

As we keep our eyes on Jesus, let’s check out what today’s devotional has to say!

Scripture from Today’s Devotional:

‘ And if the Spirit of Him Who raised up Jesus from the dead dwells in you, [then] He Who raised up Christ Jesus from the dead will also restore to life your mortal (short-lived, perishable) bodies through His Spirit Who dwells in you.’

Romans 8:11

God’s Word amazes me in how it can meet me right where I am at and speak to me about my life. Be it crossroads moments. Be it decision moments. Be it questioning or wondering moments. God’s Word has shown up in each of them. Be it wondering if I would have a son or only have daughters as I felt a connection with Philip the evangelist who had 4 daughters who were prophetesses and God brought me to the story of Abraham and the promised son named Isaac. Be it questioning if my time at Microsoft was coming to an end and getting the story of Peter invited by Jesus to get out of the boat and walked on water and then when I questioned God about that received a tweet that told me to get out of the boat. We can trust God! We can ask God and listen to what He has to say!

Let’s be the dads who lean in, believe, and receive Jesus! Let’s be the dads who allow the Holy Spirit to clean up our hearts and minds! Let’s be the dads who allow the Holy Spirit to lead us and guide us, bring us peace, and comfort us! Let’s be the dads who receive the hope and joy being delivered through today’s scripture! Let’s be the dads who rejoice “that even in this life, inhabiting our mortal flesh, we can have the life force of God flowing through us, giving us new life in Christ, what Jesus called, abundant life (Jn 10:10)“! Let’s be the dads who choose to walk out our lives in alignment to God’s Spirit living in us! Let’s be the dads who choose to live our lives knowing the Holy Spirit is living in us, not just around us! Let’s be the dads who rejoice in the fact that we are spiritually alive because we have the Holy Spirit in us! Let’s be the dads who celebrate the reality that the Holy Spirit that allowed for the resurrection of Jesus is living in us and that we too will be resurrected in Jesus when the time comes!
