FOCUS ON THE FUNDAMENTALS - DAILY DISCIPLINES FOUND IN THE ARMOR OF GOD - A 10-DAY BIBLE PLAN BY TIM FERRARA (FOUNDER OF DISCERNING DAD)

Focus on the Fundamentals – Day 9

Let’s keep it simple! Let’s focus on the fundamentals! Let’s be the dads that God created us to be! Let’s be the dads who are ready and prepared for today! Let’s be the dads our wives need us to be! Let’s be the dads our kids need us to be! Let’s be the dads our world needs us to be!

As we head into day 9 of 10 let’s grab hold of what today’s devotional has for us.


Scripture from Today’s Devotional:

‘ For the Word that God speaks is alive and full of power [making it active, operative, energizing, and effective]; it is sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating to the dividing line of the breath of life (soul) and [the immortal] spirit, and of joints and marrow [of the deepest parts of our nature], exposing and sifting and analyzing and judging the very thoughts and purposes of the heart.’

Hebrews 4:12

‘ 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),’

2 Timothy 3:16

God’s Word, our owners manual for life! God’s Word, our love letter from God! God’s Word, our directions on getting to and needing Jesus!

Let’s be the dads who grab hold of the reality that God’s Word is alive and full of power! Let’s be the dads who grab hold of the reality that God’s Word spends time and meditate on it knowing that it is active, it shows us how to operate, energizes us, and helps to live effective lives! Let’s be the dads who turn to God’s Word because we know that it is sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating to the dividing line of the breath of life or soul and the immortal spirit, and of joints and marrow of the deepest parts of our nature! Let’s be the dads who turn to God’s Word, meditate on God’s Word, and consume God’s Word because we know that it will fill and heal our hearts because it’s exposing and sifting and analyzing and judging the very thoughts and purposes of the heart!

Let’s be the dads who trust God’s Word because we know that 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 training in righteousness, in holy living, in conformity to God’s will in thought, purpose, and action!
