“He shall cry to Me, ‘You are my Father, My God, and the rock of my salvation’.” Psalm 89:26, NKJV.
I don’t know about you, but for most of my life, my biological father wasn’t there. Yet, God was there. He has been the best Father to me more than I could ever imagine.
Think about what your heavenly Father has done for you. He has given you victories, and He has also carried you through the toughest times of your life. He told you that you could do it. Be reminded of how God has been a Father to you and allow Him to help you be the best father you can be.
He has blessed you with the greatest honor and privilege to be a father–a valuable component to the family structure of God. You are the guide of the home, the leader, protector and provider. You are built to handle tough situations, and lead your family through it. A father loves and ministers to his wife and children in every way. You make sure your home is happy. Your children thrive at your wisdom and your voice of encouragement when you tell them they can do it.
God has been the best Father to you. Be the best father for your family. Obey God and may you find joy in leading your family to victory.
Prayer: Father, when I think about what You have done for me, You are the best Father. Thank You for giving one Son for another, and You saved me. Thank You for keeping me and providing me with everything I need to be a great father to lead my family. I don’t take it lightly. Help me to love them like You and be the best father I can be. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
