Last week I was feeling like everything in my house was falling apart. Things I needed to fix, things I already fixed broke again, kids not getting along, my list just seemed to grow and feel unmanageable. I know I’m a dad. I’m “the man of the house,” but sometimes it just seems like too much! As I arrived to work on Thursday, it occurred to me how much my heavenly Father must feel (at least on a very small scale)! There are so many things in my life He needs to fix and things He’s already fixed that He will need to fix again! THEN, Pastor Doug preached an incredible Father’s Day sermon about our Father in heaven and the importance of Fatherhood to the Gospel's message! If you missed Sunday’s service, I recommend that you take the time to listen:
There were several great passages in Doug’s message, but the scripture reading is a message that paints a beautiful image of fatherhood:
““Keep on asking, and you will receive what you ask for. Keep on seeking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And to everyone who knocks, the door will be opened. “You parents—if your children ask for a loaf of bread, do you give them a stone instead? Or if they ask for a fish, do you give them a snake? Of course not!”
Matthew 7:7-10 NLT It’s incredible to me how our Bible relates to us on a personal level. We need to go to our Father for all of our needs!
