Meat For Men Daily Encouragement Blog

The vision for Meat for Men — UNCOMPROMISING MANHOOD blog is to encourage husbands, fathers and single men in Biblical manhood.

Posted by on in Meat For Men Daily Encouragement Blog

Raising Godly FamilyDaniel 11:32 (HCSB) states: "The people who know their God will be strong and take action."

As fathers, we have a great work to do. We are raising up our children to be standard-bearers to the nation we live in as well as many other nations.

We are raising up families of strong moral character.

We are raising families who have been well taught on all godly moral values.

We are raising children and young people who know their Bibles and know how to pray.

We are raising families who know how to hold their heads up and their shoulders square in the face of all opposition to righteous standards.

We are raising families who know how to resist temptations to be liars, cheats, compromisers, and lazy "good for nothings."

We are raising up our families to be movers and shakers of all that is wholesome and righteous.

We are raising families who are not afraid of devils and demonic forces of darkness who dare to roar against us.

We are raising families who know their God and who will be strong, and do exploits.

We are raising families with stickability, persistence, and pluck.

We are raising families who are learning how to fight in the battles of life, who will never quit or throw in the towel.

Men, the world desperately needs this kind of family more than ever. You had better believe it! The whole world needs fathers and mother who will be prepared to sacrifice everything to make this happen.

Men, are you tracking with me?

Be encouraged.

RighteousnessAloneIsaiah 62:10 says, "Go through, go through the gates; prepare ye the way of the people; cast up, cast up the highway; gather out the stones; lift up a standard for the people."

As fathers, we have the priceless privilege of being moral, godly standard-bearers for not only our own families, but ultimately the whole nation. We must, and can, change this nation for good--one family at a time, beginning with our own family.

For too long we have as a so-called Christian nation allowed our godly Christian morals and values to slip and fall away to the point that we appear to many of the world's Islamic peoples, who hold extremely strict moral codes with harsh penalties, to be decadent, offensive, and ungodly. However, we know that for all their prayers and strict religious observances that their religion is full of massive hypocrisies and injustices, especially towards woman. Their barbaric treatment of innocent people by the use of the sword in order to convert them to Islam is plain straight demonic and evil.

Unfortunately, as a Christian nation, we appear to those who want to attack us as immoral, ungodly, given to drugs, alcohol, pornography, shootings, murders, adulteries, and abortions. Our checkout tabloids are full of it. Our media and movie theaters are full of it.

As a Christian nation we have been called by God to be a light to a dark world, to be an example nation of people who speak the truth, to be a people who show forth justice, honor, and integrity.

Fathers, all this has to start in our homes. It is we men and fathers who must raise the standards of honesty, purity, and godly morals.

We must start today.

Be encouraged.

 Be strong in the LORDNow is NOT the time for coffee and tea gatherings or prayer breakfasts where we do more talking and breakfasting than praying. Now is not the time for levity, laughing, joking and telling funny stories.

Now is the time for us to take military action in the spirit realm.
Now is the time for us to pray as families for those who are being downtrodden, beaten, and persecuted.

lovingMenMen, I believe that the greatest thing that could sum up our lives or could ever be said about us is that we are loving men. We would all agree that love is the greatest word that describes God. 1 John 4:16 says, "And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love, and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him."

Although God is characterized by many great and wonderful attributes such as His holiness, truth, strength, righteousness, mercy, faithfulness, justice and many others that should never be underestimated in any way, but the greatest is love. The apostle Paul makes this very clear in 1 Corinthians 13:13 that even though there are three major abiding virtues for all Christians--faith, hope, and love, but the GREATEST of these is love.

Men, a very religious man may not be a very loving man. We may have all the doctrines of the Bible in our heads, and yet not have love moving out of our hands and feet. John 3:16 says, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." Someone has said, "You can give without loving, but you can't love without giving." God gave His only begotten Son purely because He loves us so much.

Men, our families need to see and experience this greatest of all virtues outweighing everything else about us in order that we will be the true reflectors of God.

Be encouraged.

DadDaughterFishing"Behold what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God . . . We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren" (1 John 3:1, 14).

Men, every day we are presented with new opportunities to show forth the loving heart of our heavenly Father. The whole world is famished for living demonstrations of His fatherly love. Each one of us "prayed up" men have the great privilege of generously ministering God's love at all times and at every opportunity to a desperately needy world.

First of all, we must minister love to our wives and families. Those who are closest to us have the number one priority. Men, there is something wrong with the picture when we think that others outside of our immediate family have the first right to God's fatherly love flowing through us. Perhaps it is easier to minister to those who do not see us close up and those who are not acquainted with our faults and failures for they do not really know what we are like on the home base where we tend to be more vulnerable.

The Father's love in us is unchanging, no matter where we are, in the home or out of the home. All that His love requires is men, who despite their own inadequacies, will seek the Lord sufficiently for His love to be released in all its manifold ways to all who are involved in our lives, both at home and everywhere we go.

We men must never forget that the greatest debt we owe our families and our fellowmen is love, for God Himself is love, and has made love to be the highest ambition for man to aspire and fulfill. There is no quest higher than love.

Be encouraged.
