BIBLICAL FATHERHOOD--THE GREAT NEED OF THE WORLD 7z-23) HE HAS A GENERATION MINDSET-- ROLE MODELING LOVE THAT "HOPES ALL THINGS" (1 Corinthians 13:7) continued.

Men, as we seek to role model the love that "hopes all things" we can expect Scriptural blessings to come upon us. For example:

Good courage and a strengthened heart (Psalm 31:24).
God's eye will be upon us (Psalm 33:18).
God's mercy will be upon us (Psalm 33:22; 130:7).
God will hear us (Psalm 38:15).
He will lift us up from discouragement and sadness (Psalm 42:5, 11; 43:5).
He will hold us up (Psalm 119:116).
We will be happy (Psalm 146:5).
The Lord will take pleasure in us (Psalm 14:11).
We will have gladness (Proverbs 10:28).
We will be blessed (Jeremiah 17:7-8). And what is the blessing? Here is the full Scripture, "For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit."
We will have a song in our hearts (Hosea 2:15).
We will rejoice (Romans 5:2; Romans 12:12).
We will not be ashamed Romans 5:5).
We are saved through hope (Roman s 8:24).
We will have joy and peace (Romans 15:13).
We will have patience (1 Thessalonians 1:3).

Men, Romans 15:4 is a great Scripture, for it encourages us as fathers to make sure that we, and our families, should be strongly immersed in the Scriptures. It says, "For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope."

How can we have the love that "hopes all things" if we do not know the Scriptures? It is in the Scriptures that we find the "all things" of comfort and hope. Fathers, this is why the Lord is exercising me to exhort you to not fail to have Family Devotions (Family Bible Reading and Prayer) with your family each day. This is part of role modeling the love that hopes all things.

Be encouraged.
