Who Is Your Father?
‘ Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? ‘
– Matthew 6:26 (NIV)
“There is something gratuitous about creation, an unnecessary abundance of beauty, and through its blossoms and pleasures we can revel in the sheer largesse of the Father.”

It was Father’s Day celebration yesterday
Happy Father’s Day greeting to all great men reading this now.
May you be Fathers indeed.
To all that had the good fortune of being raised by a good earthly father, be grateful.
To others that probably didn’t really know their earthly fathers due to circumstances beyond their control, be comforted.
Maybe you had a biological father that was absent, abusive, evasive, or simply dysfunctional, be encouraged.
Above all, we all do have an amazing father after all. He is the Father of all creation. The Ultimate Father Himself! God Almighty
Do you regularly meditate on this truth?
Hope you noticed the way Jesus spoke in our verse for today.
He could have said ‘My heavenly Father feeds them’, but He chose to say, ‘Your” heavenly Father!
Many of us find it hard to accept that a Great and Holy one such as God will freely associate with us despite all our fumbles, failures, and fear. The good news is that He has assessed, weighed, and seen all your shortcomings but still has adopted you. For our lives, He sent His Only Son!
He is your very own Father! He knows all of His responsibilities to you. This is why You should have no fear.
Your Father will lead you.
He will care for you.
He will protect you.
He will carry you when life weighs you down.
He will see you through when you are going through trials and temptations.
All you need to do is accept His love and relate to Him as a loving child will do to his/her Father.
LET US PRAY:
Dear Heavenly Father, the Source of all, I worship you. Thank you for you are a Great Great Father. May my life bring you glory and honor. I love you. Let your name be exalted in my life.
May your power be evident in all areas of my life. May men and women, young and old see me and give glory to you.
In Jesus’ Name, I pray. Amen.
