Finally! I found time to seat back and read the book Bible Promises for Dad my daughter Joyanna gave me on Father’s Day. The book has been sitting on my table for almost four months now. I thank God for my very sweet and thoughtful daughter. Every time she sees the book, she would ask me if I’ve already started reading it. I would just smile at her and answer not yet. She just smiles back at me with pure joy with no trace of disappointment on her face and voice as she says “I love you Papa”!
I’m not really a book person and I don’t enjoy reading that much but today I just decided to exert a little effort and read :0) hehehe and on the process I would share thoughts and wisdom that I will be getting from the book.
The book is Bible Promises for Dad by Mary Grace Birkhead.
I was actually expecting a narrative or a story type but I was very happy to find that it was a compilation of devotions and Bible scriptures. It is something that I can read over and over be reminded of God’s promises.
Bible Promises for Dad Chapter 1 is about Promises for a Living Faith
Here are a few that I really loved in this chapter and I hope that you would be edified too!
Faith is the mother of virtues. Faith is the fire which consumes sacrifice. Faith is the water which nurtures the root of piety. If you have not faith, all your graces must die. And in proportion as your faith increases, so will all your virtues be strengthened, not all in the same proportion, but all in some degree. ~ Charles Spurgeon
Faith sees the invisible, believes the unbelievable, and receives the impossible. ~ Corrie Ten Boom
And who will harm you if you are deeply committed to what is good? But even if you should suffer for righteousness, you are blessed. Do not fear what they fear or be disturbed, but honor the Messiah as Lord in your hearts. Always be ready to give defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you. ~ 1 Peter 3:13-15 (HCSB)
Lord, You are my portion and my cup of blessing; You hold my future. The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; indeed, I have a beautiful inheritance. ~ Psalm 15:5-6 (HCSB)
There’s so much more in this chapter but I only wanted to share the ones that ministered to me today. I’m so blessed to have a wonderful daughter that God uses to remind me of His Faithfulness!
