“Praise be to the Lord my Rock...He is my loving God and my fortress, my stronghold, and my deliverer, my shield, in whom I take refuge...”. Psalm 144: 1-2
Happy Father’s Day to all the dads, grandfathers, and spiritual dads. You can be the difference makers in this generation!
David is talking in these verses about God, but if God as our Heavenly Father, then these are what earthly men need to be like:
MY ROCK - when you think of a large rock it is unmovable, unshakable, secure, and these are qualities that we need in our homes today by our dads!
LOVING - we know that God is loving! We need men that will love their children with God’s love! Lord help our families see the love of God in our lives in private and publicly!
FORTRESS - dads we need to keep our homes protected from the enemy, world and the flesh. Our homes should be a fort of protection for our families.
STRONGHOLD - God is holding us, and is strong and mighty. We must HOLD our families up in prayer and the Word of God!
DELIVERER - we need to be the superhero for our families, in our lives, examples and actions. Our families need to see that we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us!
SHIELD - shield of faith is needed today so that we can quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. We must be men of faith!
REFUGE - we need to be like God who is our refuge and strength, a very present help in the time of trouble!
I pray this for me and for every man! Lord help us to be more like our Heavenly Father! May the Lord bless every home today!
