Monday's Message of Hope

Father's Day!
Monday, June 21, 2021 by Penelope Kaye

Hello, dear friend

I’m writing this as Father’s Day comes to an end, the day set aside to honor and bless fathers, dads, grandfathers, grandpas, papas, pops, and all the other myriad of names given to those men who fathered children, whether born of their flesh or not.

God established and ordained fatherhood from his own nature. But our fathers are flesh and blood with the same sin issues as everyone else. They make mistakes; they miss the mark; they misunderstand their loved ones, and more. Sometimes they outright abuse the sacred trust they have been given. The marks they leave can cause a host of problems for their children, affecting spirit, soul, and body. And unfortunately, those marks can have a devastating effect on how we view dads.

Because our thoughts on fathers directly impact how we see our Heavenly Father, we desperately need help to heal those wounds so we can change the way we think about our Father God. Thankfully, we have the perfect solution in the Father/Son relationship between God the Father and God the Son. Throughout the Gospels, Jesus referred to God as “Father” nearly two hundred times. Showing us the perfect father, a father of love and mercy, compassion and forgiveness, yet with a firmness and steadfastness to guide, direct, and correct.

With this picture of a dad and his beloved son, we have the opportunity to change the way we think about fathers, move into forgiveness, and embrace the goodness of Abba Father. If you’re a father reading this, and your failures are glaring, know with a certainty of the power of the cross that you have a Father in heaven with open arms of grace and forgiveness.

 God bless each of you with a Father’s Blessing:

May the Lord bless and protect you;

May the Lord’s face radiate with joy because of you;

May he be gracious to you, show you his favor, and give you his peace. (Numbers 6:24-26, Living Bible)

Below are some questions to reflect and/or journal. Feel free to share your thoughts—I would love to hear from you.

  • Do you see a need to change your view of Father God?
  • What are your favorite scriptures where Jesus describes the Father?
  • How will this understanding affect your relationship with your heavenly Father?

Have a blessed and hope-filled week celebrating our Father God!

Penelope Kaye

I really like it when Jesus called out "Abba" Father, with the thought of Jesus calling Him "Papa" on a very personal level.

Hi, Evelyn. Jesus always showed us his humanity, and calling Almighty God "Abba" helps us to connect with our Abba Father. Blessings, Penelope Kaye

God gave his Son to save us forever, love that goes forth forever. I am so blessed to have had a father who believed in God, said blessings at the table and prayers with us at night, welcomed not only international exchange students but also those who had forever erred and helped them. Yea fathers

Hi, Linaya. What wonderful memories you have. How easy it is to connect with our heavenly Father, who is even more superior than the best earthly father. Thank you for sharing your wonderful father with us. Blessings, Penelope Kaye
