Do you know what it’s like to be without a father? I do! A father is a very important part of the family. We need the discipline of the father but also the loving arms of a father to help us mature and grow into a healthy adult. Father’s who take their place as the head of the family the way God intended will have characteristics of THE FATHER and have wisdom knowing how to discipline with a firm hand when needed but also have the compassion and love to exhibit at just the right time.
A spiritual father steps into a position left vacant for a time of pouring into others not only the Word of God but showing love and mercy to those who have no spiritual guidance. He steps into a place of adoption so to speak and takes the younger ones under his wings and helps them to grow. Just as our heavenly Father does and becomes a father to the fatherless.
A father protects, guides, loves, disciplines, and provides for his family. Sounds a lot like our Father God!
Meditate on this thought, He is the Father to the fatherless, He’s everything we need if we can just accept it. Soak in His presence and ask Him to be your Father today, you will never regret it.
