The Father's Traits

main image

We know that we possess our earthly father's traits. But have you thought about the traits that our heavenly Father possesses that should be ours as well? Galatians 5:22-23 tells us that He has perfect qualities and traits that we should desire to have them for ourselves. Think about it if someone is loving they will care about you because of you. When they are joyful they are a pleasure to be around. When they are patient with you then they won't dump you when your acting a little off. When they are kind to you or good to you, then you know you are safe in their presence. If they are faithful then you can trust them. If they are gentle then they won't be harsh or brash. And finally if they can control themselves then they keep themselves to a higher standard. These are His traits and they should be ours. When you strive to be like Him then we have no rules or laws that say we are too worldly. Strive to be like Him!!! 

Do you find it hard sometimes to walk the walk of your Father? Let us help you stay on track drop us a line and we promise to respond!!!

Words Of Yea Yea

People have some needs that are excruciatingly deep. Poet Alfred, Lord Tennyson wrote, “Never morning wore to evening, but some heart did break.”

We find ourselves in conversation at times with heartbroken friends and may feel at an utter loss to know what to say. How can we “speak a word in season to him who is weary,” as it says in Isaiah 50:4?

Telling people what human teachers have taught us may have some impact on them. But the most helpful or persuasive words are spoken by those who are taught by the Lord Himself.

That’s why it’s essential for us to sit at Jesus’ feet and learn from Him. The more we receive from Him, the more we have to give to others. George MacDonald pictures this time with the Lord as having “a chamber in God Himself.” He continues: “Out of [that] chamber . . . man has to bring revelation and strength for his brethren. This is that for which he was made.”

It’s through our thoughtful and prayerful Bible study, reading, and quiet meditation that God speaks to our hearts. He gives us “the tongue of the learned” (Isa. 50:4) so that we have something to share with those who are in the depths of despair.
