A Father Love

June 22, 2015

Happy Father Day to all the real fathers and the mothers that have stood in the gap and provided for his/her children during good times and bad times. I didn’t always like the jobs I held or how people talked to me; but I thanked God for the job to provide for my family.  I loved the people because the love of God was in my heart. A real father will work in the heat, cold and rain to take care of his children. A real father will sacrifice his last to make sure his children can have. A real father will always worry and care for the well-being of his children.  In a crowd, a real father can distinguish the voices of each child that cries out to him. We don’t have to identify ourselves when we cry out to our Heavenly Father. He recognizes our voices when we say “Father”.

As a father, I have made mistakes and wrong decisions but I have always had my family best interest at heart. I couldn’t give them everything they asked for but I tried to give them everything they needed. Our Heavenly Father does not give us everything we ask for but He does supply our every need. Solomon knew the importance of a two-parent family. A family to lead direct and protect the family. My sons, hear the instruction of your father, and do not forsake the law of your mother”. (Proverbs 1:8) At some point, a son or daughter will need the instructions, help or advice of their father. My wife and I tried to set good examples before our children and lead them to Christ. I want my children and people to look unto Jesus and not me for examples. Regardless of how hard I try, I will fall, get knocked down or make mistakes. Jesus will never fail us nor let us down.

Jesus knew the cup placed before Him was going to be bitter. He knew the pain He was going to suffer and wanted strength from His Father to complete His earthly assignment. Before Jesus was crucified, He prayed to His Father three times in the Garden of Gethsemane. “O My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as You will.  “Again, a second time, He went away and prayed, saying, “O My Father, if this cup cannot pass away from Me unless I drink it, Your will be done.” “So He left them, went away again, and prayed the third time, saying the same words”. (Matthew 26:39, 42 and 44) Jesus also called on His Father on the cross.And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, “Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?” that is, “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?” (Matthew 26:46) Satan plans are to divide families through manifold temptations. If Satan can take away the father, he can over-take the family.

Prayer: Father, we thank Thee for always hearing our prayers and voices. Thank You for all the fathers You have placed as providers over these families. We pray for their strength, their walk with you and we ask You to order their steps and protect them, in Jesus name. Amen
