I will be a Father to you, and you will be My sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty. 2 Corinthians 6:18
Today you are invited to consider how you relate to God as your Father. What does the role of Father mean to you as a son or daughter? How does the relationship you have or had with your own father colour your relationship with God your Father? If you have been blessed with a loving earthly father, then spend time thanking and praising God for him and the special place he has in your life. If, however, you never knew your father or the relationship was not a good one, however that manifested itself, ask God to help you in your relationship with Him as Father. Ask Him to heal and replace the hurtful memories of the earthly relationship with the glorious joy of God as your Father. Let Him love you as only your loving heavenly Father can – and relax as His son or daughter in His arms as He holds you close.
May God bless you with Fatherly love today – and may you, in turn, be able to pass such love on to your children, whether you are mother or father to them (or to other children if you have none of your own).
