Foundations #2 : God the Father

Foundations #2 : God the Father

Knowledge of God the Father arises from the place, in which the Son and Spirit are like the two hands of the Father. Hands that show us the Father’s heart and the Father’s Character.


A great way to continue to engage God is to saturate our lives with Music and Worship for God. This week, we have a curated list of modern songs on God the Father. More resources to come shortly, but here are two playlists filled with a few songs for Reflecting on God the Father this week – worth a listen! Click through access:

Day 1: Giver of Gifts

Read Luke 11:5-12
Good Earthly fathers will do what is necessary to protect and provide for their Children. If that is true of our Earthly fathers, how much more true is it of our Heavenly Father? This is the appeal of Jesus in this Luke 11. God the Father is omnipotent and nothing can stand in the way of His providing for us. In other passages he is described as a Shepherd. 

Q. What can you thank God for? What needs has he provided for? What has he blessed you with? 

Take a moment and thank God the Father, giver of all good things. Before the Eternal Father, acknowledge that you trust him and ask that He will continue to provide for you.

Day 2: The Love of a Father

Read Psalm 68:5-6; Isaiah 68:4

This was an honest reflection a Father made. 

“My family’s all grown and the kids are all gone. But if I had to do it all over again, this is what I would do. I would love my wife more in front of my children. I would laugh with my children more—at our mistakes and our joys. I would listen more, even to the littlest child. I would be more honest about my own weaknesses, never pretending perfection. I would pray differently for my family; instead of focusing only on them, I’d focus on me. I would do more things together with my children. I would encourage them more and bestow more praise. I would pay more attention to little things, like deeds and words of thoughtfulness. And then, finally, if I had to do it all over again, I would share God more intimately with my family; every ordinary thing that happened in every ordinary day I would use to direct them to God.” 

God the Father is that type of Father. Intimately involved. Deeply loving. Forever seeking us. Present and gracious. 

Q. What can you do today to be a Parent / Grandparent / Friend that is more like God the Father? 

Read Matt. 6:8;
Ask God the Father for help in any area’s that you need help in today. 

Day 3-5 will be added in the coming days.
