THE OFFICE OF FATHERHOOD PT. 2

Understanding the Efficacy of Affirmative Words from The Father

In the previous piece about the Office of Fatherhood, we looked at how the Words of blessing from the father figure is so important to the manifestation of sons and daughters. Today we would be learning from God, how He models Fatherhood to us and how He speaks certain Words to His children who would eventually emerge as great leaders.

 

God said to Jeremiah, “do not say I am a youth” (Jeremiah 1:7) This is God addressing a Jeremiah that was underestimating his own capacity or rather giving excuses why he should not be relevant in the assignment of the Father. And God began to address his inferiority complex, speaking positive Words that reinforces his purpose and assignment. I am sure that many fathers are falling short in this area. Your Words must carry in itself spirit and life, you must be a father that fraternizes with the Holy Spirit in order for Words to make impacts on the life of your children. Speak Spiritual Words and not Words that are dead, lacking life and essence.

 

They should be Words that will boost the child’s confidence, Words of motivation, Words that can stir and activate the spirit of Boldness. Not Words that that demoralizes or crush the child’s spirit. Not Words that continues to emphasize the child’s weaknesses.  He said to Joshua, be strong and courageous, He said to Gideon a fearful man who underestimated himself “thou mighty man of valour”. And these Words of encouragement went a long way to boast their confidence, thereby making them accomplish difficult task and conquer territories.

 

God said to Abraham; “You will be the father of many nations.” This God trying to tell Abraham that what you see now is not real, the situations that seems like bareness and dryness around you is not real, it seems as if you are unfruitful and you lack the capacity to multiply but I will make you a father of many nations. ‘You will be father of many nations’ is like a father making a promise to his son, that as long as you continue to be my child, there is a promise to be obtained. Before this statement, God said to Him: "As for Me, this is my covenant with you”, and I want us to note that: God is a covenant keeper and He does not fail on His promises, an attribute that every father must keep. Are you a father that promise and fail? Do you have integrity? Can your children hold you by your Words? If God honours His own Words, Do you? This attribute is worthy of emulation.

 

He said to Jesus Christ, “this is my beloved son in whom I am well pleased”, He didn’t just keep the love to Himself, He confessed it, He expressed it openly, with others bearing witness of it, letting others know how much love He has for His Son, not just His son but His sons. God said at a point in Zachariah 2:8 that; for he who touches you touches the apple of His eye” showing how precious we are to Him. God is a giver of love and He is not ashamed to express it at any time. Are you a father that finds it difficult to express your love to your children? It is not enough to say in your heart that I love them, you must speak about it, you must express it, it is not a sign of weakness, it is a sign of strength. Most fathers who find it difficult to show love is because they have not been loved by their broken fathers and so they have not accepted themselves so they carry that weakness and replicate same on their children.  You must break that cycle; you must begin to let them Know that they mean a lot to you. John 3:16 says it all.

Word of Confession: (Optional)

Lord Jesus, I confess to you that I have sinned against the LORD God - in the rebellion of my heart, I have disappointed your expectations on my life. I have fallen from Your grace and followed wrong influences around me. Today, I retrace my steps back to you - and I ask that in your mercy you accept me as your son and give to me (again) the promise of the Father - the Holy Spirit. Lord Jesus, please, come and make my heart your home, and from there rule in the affairs of all men. In Jesus Name I have prayed.

I have come to realise that THE THINGS we have chosen or accepted to be TRUE, and how we frame our WORLD, will ultimately determine how we will EXPERIENCE IT. In other words, our perception ultimately determines our realities.
