New Year’s resolutions can lead to more discouragement than encouragement. In follow up to last week’s RESOLUTION, I want you to be ENCOURAGED!
… that you are a child of God, an heir of God and co-heir with Christ. (Romans 8:17). As such, He has you exactly where He wants you. Honor Him in every situation, discussion, decision and relationship you face;
… that the Heavenly Father shares the moniker “father” with you for a reason – you are His representative in your home;
… through the valleys that are part of the journey for you as well as your wife and kids. Take heart that the Lord is at work in those valleys. (Romans 5:3-5 & 8:28);
… that glimpses of His glory will be granted through the eyes and hugs of your kids. Be sensitive to those and praise the Lord every day for the blessing of children;
… that you are a faithful father – a dad that prioritizes physical presence, is engaged emotionally and leads spiritually by example.
If God is for us, who can be against us! (Romans 8:31)
Be ENCOURAGED and “Give ‘em Heaven!” throughout this New Year.
