SCRIPTURES FOR GODLY FATHER’S TO LIVE BY  

 

Today, we celebrate  and honor  fathers from every walk in life, from every place in the world, we pause to give God the glory for allowing each one of us to be in His presents this day. The role of fatherhood is threaten more each and every day due to the bad economic conditions that fathers have to bare to earn a living to feed, cloth, educate and provide relief and comfort to the family.  However, we know that God is a loving and merciful God and He will provide a way out for those who learn to trust and depend on Him.  Therefore, to conclude our study on, “WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE LEADERSHIP AND GROWTH OF GODLY FAMILIES,” we will leave you with the word of God to teach you, strengthen you and guide you in your role as leaders.

You comfort your children in their sorrow

 

Psalm 103:17

 

Amplified Bible(AMP)

 

17But the mercy and loving-kindness of the Lord are from everlasting to everlasting upon those who reverently and worshipfully fear Him and His righteousness is to children’s children

 

Isaiah 40:1, 8

 

1COMFORT, COMFORT My people, says your God.

 

The [a]grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever.

 

Isaiah 41:10, 15, 16

 

Fear not [there is nothing to fear], for I am with you; do not look around you in terror and be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen and harden you to difficulties, yes, I will help you; yes, I will hold you up and retain you with My [victorious] right hand of rightness and justice.

 

15Behold, I will make you to be a new, sharp, threshing instrument which has teeth; you shall thresh the mountains and beat them small, and shall make the hills like chaff.

 

16You shall winnow them, and the wind shall carry them away, and the tempest or whirlwind shall scatter them. And you shall rejoice in the Lord, you shall glory in the Holy One of Israel.

 

Isaiah 53:4, 5

 

4Surely He has borne our grief’s (sicknesses, weaknesses, and distresses) and carried our sorrows and pains [of punishment], yet we [ignorantly] considered Him stricken, smitten, and afflicted by God [as if with leprosy].

 

5But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our guilt and iniquities; the chastisement [needful to obtain] peace and well-being for us was upon Him, and with the stripes [that wounded] Him we are healed and made whole.

 

2 Samuel 22:5-7

 

Amplified Bible (AMP)    

 

5For the waves of death enveloped me; the torrents of destruction made me afraid.

 

6The cords of Sheol were entangling me; I encountered the snares of death.

 

7In my distress I called upon the Lord; I cried to my God, and He heard my voice from His temple; my cry came into His ears.

 

Isaiah 56:8

 

Amplified Bible (AMP)

 

8Thus says the Lord God, Who gathers the outcasts of Israel: I will gather yet others to [Israel] besides those already gathered.

YOU FEEL DEFEATED AND POWERLESS

 

Psalm 46:1-3

 

Amplified Bible (AMP)

 

1GOD IS our Refuge and Strength [mighty and impenetrable to temptation], a very present and well-proved help in trouble.

 

2Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change and though the mountains be shaken into the midst of the seas,

 

3Though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains tremble at its swelling and tumult. Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!

 

Job 5:6-9

 

Amplified Bible (AMP)

 

6For affliction comes not forth from the dust, neither does trouble spring forth out of the ground.

 

7But man is born to trouble as the sparks and the flames fly upward.

 

8As for me, I would seek God and inquire of and require Him, and to God would I commit my cause–

 

9Who does great things and unsearchable, marvelous things without number.

 

Psalm 5:1-8, 11, 12

 

Amplified Bible (AMP)

 

1LISTEN TO my words, O Lord, give heed to my sighing and groaning.

 

2Hear the sound of my cry, my King and my God, for to You do I pray.

 

3In the morning You hear my voice, O Lord; in the morning I prepare [a prayer, a sacrifice] for You and watch and wait [for You to speak to my heart].

 

4For You are not a God Who takes pleasure in wickedness; neither will the evil [man] so much as dwell [temporarily] with You.

 

5Boasters can have no standing in Your sight; You abhor all evildoers.

 

6You will destroy those who speak lies; the Lord abhors [and rejects] the bloodthirsty and deceitful man.

 

7But as for me, I will enter Your house through the abundance of Your steadfast love and mercy; I will worship toward and at Your holy temple in reverent fear and awe of You.

 

8Lead me, O Lord, in Your righteousness because of my enemies; make Your way level (straight and right) before my face.

 

11But let all those who take refuge and put their trust in You rejoice; let them ever sing and shout for joy, because You make a covering over them and defend them; let those also who love Your name be joyful in You and be in high spirits.

 

12For You, Lord, will bless the [uncompromisingly] righteous [him who is upright and in right standing with You]; as with a shield You will surround him with goodwill (pleasure and favor).

 

2 Corinthians 12:8-10

 

Amplified Bible (AMP)

 

8Three times I called upon the Lord and besought [Him] about this and begged that it might depart from me;

 

9But He said to me, My grace (My favor and loving-kindness and mercy) is enough for you [sufficient against any danger and enables you to bear the trouble manfully]; for My strength and power are made perfect (fulfilled and completed) and [a]show themselves most effective in [your] weakness. Therefore, I will all the more gladly glory in my weaknesses and infirmities, that the strength and power of Christ (the Messiah) may rest (yes, may [b]pitch a tent over and dwell) upon me!

 

10So for the sake of Christ, I am well pleased and take pleasure in infirmities, insults, hardships, persecutions, perplexities and distresses; for when I am weak [[c]in human strength], then am I [truly] strong (able, powerful [d]in divine strength).
