A Father is the protector of the family. God is going to be revealing himself more like a Father to you. Fathers have a profound effect on their children’s lives. God delights in Fathers, because He himself is a Father. Jesus often said that God the Father was always with him. When Jesus was on earth he always did what pleased his Father and we need to do the same thing.
A Father is the HEAD of the family. It stands for protection and safety. God wants to bring to your family an atmosphere of safety and love. Don’t you want to feel love and safety? As a Father he also sets boundaries and rules in our lives that we have to obey so we stay safe. He is helping us by doing this.
As God reveals himself more to you like your daddy he will show you that he LOVES you unconditionally. He is here for you and wants to spend quality time with you. He is showing me that many are feeling fatherless at all different ages, young and old. You are never too old to need the feeling of a Fathers Hand by your side. Many are feeling unsafe not protected. Many need direction and comfort that a Father would give. Many need to feel a big bear hug and love. Many need their boo-boo’s kissed. Many need someone to stand up and fight for them. Many need encouragement. Many need a strong hand to grab a hold of.
Some of you may have earthly Fathers that have let you down or haven’t been there for you. Some Fathers have passed away. The Lord is here and he is your daddy to lean on. He will be revealing himself more and more to you. He will never leave you and his love never changes no matter what happens. As you lean in he will protect you, guide you, stand up for you, believe in you, give you direction, comfort, love, and give hugs and kisses on your boo-boo’s.
“What is the value of your soul to God? Could your worth be defined by an amount of money? God doesn’t abandon or forget even the small sparrow he has made. How then could he forget or abandon you? What about the seemingly minor issues of your life? Do they matter to God? Of course they do! So you never need to worry, for you are more valuable to God than anything else in this world.” Luke 12:6-7(TPT)
GOD IS SAYING” FATHERS ARISE AND STAND TALL FOR I CREATED YOU TO BE A FATHER. ARISE AND BE A PROTECTOR, A PROVIDER, A LOVER, AN ENCOURAGER AND UPLIFT YOUR FAMILY. STEP INTO AUTHORITY AS YOU GET INTO POSITION WITH ME WHICH WILL CULTIVATE INTIMACY WITH ME. MY HANDS WILL WORK THROUGH YOUR HANDS TO SHOW YOU AND TEACH YOU.”
“He used his powerful arms and strong hands. His faithful love will last forever.” Psalm 136: 12(ERV)
“Don’t worry I am with you. Don’t be afraid I am your God. I will make you strong and help you. I will support you with my right hand that brings victory.” Isaiah 41:10(ERV)
My dad always protected our family and still does. He also protected our country. He is my protector as well as God my father. He always showed us unconditional love which helped me learn to love myself. He always provided for his family and worked very hard. I remember when I was younger my dad for years worked over time. He was never lazy a day in his life unless he was sick. He is such a MAN!!
He was always honest and very loving. He so loves his girls!! He was always willing to drop everything if you needed help with something. He is amazingly smart in my eyes. He is someone I look up to. He is a fantastic electrician who cane fix anything. He has also made some beautiful pieces of wood with those amazing hands of his.
He loves to laugh and make people laugh. My dad makes the best chicken noodle soup, roast beef, homemade bread and sprinkles cookies with love. My dad also modeled how women should be treated. I love to watch how he loves my mother. You can see it in his eyes how much he adores her. He loves and respects her inside and out. They were meant for each other. They have known each other since the age of 9! How cute! To watch them dance together is amazing. Every eye is drawn to them, you can see the love and fun they share together. I love dancing with my dad. We have a special song between us that I danced at my weeding to with him and every time it plays we always dance together. He is my HERO!! This is our song My Girl By The Temptations
As I look at my daddy’s hands I see my Heavenly Fathers hands working through his hands. They are so strong and hard-working. These strong hands have worked hard, loved, fought at war, been sick, weathered, helped many, cooked and protected. These hands make me feel safe. I respect, honor and love my daddy’s hands that make me feel safe. If you don’t have your earthly Fathers Hands our Heavenly Fathers hands are waiting for you to grab them. Grab them, hold them, kiss them and hold on to them tightly!
Love and Blessings,
