WHERE ARE THE FATHERS?

WhereAreFathersTrue fathers are loving and available fathers. Jesus said in John 8:29: “He that sent me is with me: the Father has not left me alone.”

Where are the fathers of this generation? This is a huge question. If this generation fails, is it the children’s fault? Or is it the fault of the fathers? Our country is rocking and reeling under the effects of mob riots, violence, and destruction. We can thank God we have a president who is deeply opposed to all this violent, criminal activity. We can also thank God for our new Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, who is of the same mind as our president to support the Police Force and come down strongly against murder, violence, and disrespect for law and authority.

We as Christian men must pray now for our president, Donald Trump, and all members of his cabinet. How can they be successful if we do no care enough to pray earnestly for them? We also need to pray for great repentance for all moral and civil disobediences. Locking up those who are rebellious, rioters, and murderers, although I agree it must be done, does not necessarily change their hearts and ways. We are reaping the results of a great national failure of godly fatherhood and motherhood, marriage, and pretty much all biblical family values.

But there is still hope if we repent and pray!

Malachi 4:5, 6: “Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD: And he shall turn the heat of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.”

Pray for the turning of fathers’ hearts to their children and families. Fatherhood is not absentee fatherhood, but available fatherhood. Jesus confessed that His Father was always with him.

Be encouraged.
