The father is usually seen as the protector and the provider of the family. And in many aspects, the father is often seen as the head of the family. There are many important benefits to having a good father in our lives. Unfortunately in life, some people may not necessarily have a good earthly father, or may not know their father at all, but it is critical to note that God is always the Perfect Father that we all need! He is the only Father that truly has everything under his control and He is the only one with total ability to protect us from all harm.
In this post, we will briefly explore the wonderful relationship between the father and son, and how scriptures can help to guide us to have a better relationship with our Heavenly Father. Some examples of good father and son relationships from the scriptures that come to mind include Abraham and Isaac, David and Solomon, and of course, God the Father and Jesus.
It is interesting to note the connection that is shared between the fathers and their sons. In the case of Abraham and Isaac, we can attest to the trust that Isaac exhibited when it came to the situation surrounding the provision of sacrifice to God (see Genesis 22). And, this is also symbolically similar to how Jesus was willing to trust His Father in becoming the sacrifice that was provided in order to save all people (see John 3:16 and John 10:11). Another interesting father and son relationship from the bible is how David was so passionate about leaving guiding instructions and principles for his son Solomon to follow (see 1Kings 2:1-4, 1Chronicles 28 and 29).
Altogether, it is wonderful, comforting, and strengthening to know that God is the Perfect Father for all people. You can always trust God to guide and direct your life and to lead you to your destiny. Even if you may not have an earthly father that is there for you, or in some cases, some people may not have good earthly fathers, while some people do have good earthly fathers; the key point here is that, we can always count on God to be the Perfect Father for all of us, and, God wants to be the Perfect Father to you too. Be blessed always. Live your best life with God, and live inspired.
