When you’re in need, does your father provide you with a good gift? I hope so!
All of us wish we had a father that loved more, cared more and provided better. Yet we know that all men are sinful. Some try their best to be good fathers, but all fail. It seems that no man we know is perfect!
But God is different. He is a GOOD FATHER, and he only gives good gifts. The Bible says in Matthew 7:7-11 TLB,
“Ask, and you will be given what you ask for.
Seek, and you will find.
Knock, and the door will be opened.
For everyone who asks, receives.
Anyone who seeks, finds.
If only you will knock, the door will open.
If a child asks his father for a loaf of bread, will he be given a stone instead? If he asks for fish, will he be given a poisonous snake? Of course not!
And if you hard-hearted, sinful men know how to give good gifts to your children, won’t your Father in heaven even more certainly give good gifts to those who ask him for them?”
Dear friend, today be confident and ASK! Ask your Heavenly Father for what you need, and experience for yourself the love of a Perfect Father.
Thank you for giving our fathers to us. Thank you Lord for everything you’ve done for us through our dads.
Lord, even though he may be imperfect, we give thanks because this makes us depend on you, our Perfect Heavenly Father. And we know that one day, we can live together in heaven without sin or death.
We pray for our father, that he will have good health, that he will be more and more like you and grow in godly wisdom. Bless our father Lord, we pray!
In Jesus’ Name we pray,
