If you’re having a hard time connecting with God, try to remember that he’s a good father who loves us and wants what’s best for us.
We are celebrating Father’s Day in the UK today. That is a good moment to remember that God is a good father who listens and hears our prayers, who corrects us when we need it and who loves us even when we fail.
Trust in God the Father
We can speak with God like a good human father because we can trust in him. It’s important to trust God, and it’s a choice we can make every day. Trusting God means putting your faith in him, believing that he loves you and wants what’s best for you.
It may seem easy to trust someone when they’ve done something good for us or have given us something we want – but what about when things aren’t going well? How do we keep trusting God when things feel hard?
Ask God the Father for help
We can speak with God like a good human father by asking for his help in many ways. The most important way is to ask him to give you the strength you need. The Bible says: “My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is made perfect in weakness” (2 Corinthians 12:9). This means that God will give us all the strength we need when we are weak and in need.
Be open to correction
We need to be open to correction when speaking with God as a good Father. When God calls us “good,” it’s because he wants us to be better than we are now. And that means being open to his correction and guidance in our lives.
Ask for help when you need it – and then do what he tells you! God doesn’t want us stuck where we are; instead he wants us moving forward toward greater goodness!
Not all of us have had a good relationship with our human father. So, if you’re having a hard time connecting with God, try to remember that he’s a good father who loves us and wants what’s best for us. He listens when we pray and will always respond in some way. Even when we fail or make mistakes, he still accepts us as his children!
This week on Battle Drill Devotionals, following Fathers’ Day, we focus on our Father, God, who encourages us, through the words of his Son, Jesus Christ, to speak with him like we would with a good human father. Each weekday we share hope and encouragement as we read and study the Bible together.
There’s a new episode of Battle Drill Devotional every Monday through Friday.
