‘Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?’
– Matthew 6:26 (NIV)
It was fathers day celebration a couple of days back, precisely on Sunday.
Here our belated Happy Fathers Day greeting to all great men on this platform.
May you be Fathers indeed.
To all that had the good fortune of being raised by good fathers, be grateful.
To others that probably didn’t really know their earthly fathers due to circumstances beyond their control, be comforted.
And maybe you had a biological father that was absent, abusive, evasive or simply dysfunctional, I urge you to count it all joy.
Above all, we all do have an amazing father after all. He is the Father of all creation.
The Father indeed! God Almighty
Do you regularly meditate on this truth?
Hope you noticed the way Jesus spoke in our verse for today?
He could have said ‘my heavenly Father feeds them’, but He chose to say, ‘Your” heavenly Father!
Many of us find it hard to accept that a Great and Holy one such as God will freely associate with us despite all our fumbles, failures, and fear. The good news is that He has assessed, weighed and seen all our shortcomings but still has adopted us. For our lives, He sent His Only Son!
So no matter how bad you may think you are, He is your very own Father! He knows all of His responsibilities to you. This is why You should have no fear.
Your Father will feed you.
He will clothe you.
He will care for you.
He will protect you.
He will carry you when life wears you down.
He will see you through when you are going through trials.
All we need to do is accept His love and relate with Him as a loving child will to his/her Father.
He is a Good Good Father that loves us unconditionally, do not keep malice with Him. Speak with Him, and make it conversational. Love Him and look after His business. Demonstrate your desire for Him by getting to know more about Him and His Kingdom, for you have an Inheritance in that Kingdom.
Make Him proud and do good to those around you so that they will come asking, ‘who is your Father?’
Dear God, the Father of all, may my life bring you glory and honor. I love you. Let your name be exalted in my life.
May your power be evident in all areas of my life. May men and women, young and old see me and give glory to you.
In Jesus Name I pray. Amen.
