Sunday Words of Encouragment June 20, 2021 - Happy Father's Day!

This morning our Pastor and church celebrated Father’s Day, acknowledging that the role of Fathers is so important.

Pastor noted that we need to celebrate all Godly men. God made men to be Men of God. We don’t always live up to what God has designed and He is forgiving. We thank men for leading families and helping others through family, church, work or other service. There are stresses on men – concerns of failure – but often men try to hide them. The enemy (Satan) knows how to push the button to trigger us. God does not keep score the same way Satan does.

Look at the life of David on full display in the Bible.
He had success as youth defeating the giant, Goliath.
He suffered through troubles running from Saul.
He allowed temptation to lead him into sin but he repented and expressed sorrow.

David was with God but more importantly, God was with David.
David expressed the joy and excitement of bringing the Ark of the covenant back to the royal city. He stopped and offered sacrifices every six paces. 2 Samuel 6:12-15. David danced in the streets. 2 Samuel 6:15-16.

David had a heart for God, but David wasn’t perfect. He was tempted looking at Bathsheba, which led to sin continuing to look, bringing her to his bed, murdering her husband. When Nathan confronted David, David repented.

His relationship with God defined his life. His sorrow, and subsequent trust in God is seen through his writings in the Psalms. He longed for God and sought Him as refuge. Psalm 42.
David recognized that the most important thing in his life was his relationship with God.

Pastor exhorted us all to “Be Strong and unashamed as a person of God!

God has removed your sin; He has forgiven you. Don’t’ let your sin keep you from your relationship with God.

I am mindful of those who haven’t experienced a Godly father and even more sad for those who do not know the Heavenly Father. This song spoke out to me.
Verses for Today.
Psalm 42:1-2
1 As the deer pants for streams of water,
so my soul pants for you, my God.
2 My soul thirsts for God, for the living God.
When can I go and meet with God.

Lord, I thank you for my earthly father, human as he was. I also praise and thank you for my Godly father, to whom I can run whenever I need help or shelter or love.
