If He could He would - Happy Father’s Day devotional
It’s Father’s Day! To every dad reading this, I pray that today you will receive a greater anointing as a believer, as a husband, and as a father.
Let’s also take this time to honor our Heavenly Father Who has adopted us as His own children. We praise You Abba Father!
You know, in the past before I became a dad, I could not relate to our Heavenly Father’s love.
I was even thinking: “If the Father really loves us so much then why did He send Jesus to die instead of doing it Himself?”
I am ashamed to admit that I even thought it was cowardly of Him to send Jesus instead of coming to die Himself.
I was so ignorant at that time - praise Jesus that we don’t remain stagnant in our walk with God -
that we keep grow in the knowledge of God’s truths and ways.
In case anyone is having the same thoughts as I was, today’s devotional aims to show you the true heart of our Abba Father:
“While you have the light, believe in the light, that you may become sons of light.” These things Jesus spoke, and departed, and was hidden from them. But although He had done so many signs before them, they did not believe in Him, that the word of Isaiah the prophet might be fulfilled, which he spoke: “Lord, who has believed our report? And to whom has the arm of the LORD been revealed?” Therefore they could not believe, because Isaiah said again: “He has blinded their eyes and hardened their hearts, Lest they should see with their eyes, Lest they should understand with their hearts and turn, So that I should heal them.” These things Isaiah said when he saw His glory and spoke of Him.” (John 12:36-41 NKJV)
Jesus is referred to as the “arm of the Lord”.
“Who has believed our message? And to whom has the arm of the LORD been revealed? ... But the LORD was pleased To crush Him, putting Him to grief; If He would render Himself as a guilt offering, He will see His offspring, He will prolong His days, And the good pleasure of the LORD will prosper in His hand.” (Isaiah 53:1, 10 NASB)
When Jesus was scourged, humiliated and crucified, it felt to the Father like His own arm was crushed.
Jesus is a part of the Father and that is how dear Jesus is to the Father’s heart.
Make no mistake - it was much more painful for the Father to see Jesus suffer and die than to go through it Himself.
