A book of prayers to the Holy Face of Jesus
Father Knows Best
Praying That We Trace His Footsteps And That Our Families Will Trace Ours.
I think there was a TV series called “Father Knows Best!” To accept that as a child can be tough at times!
We have to have the Faith in the Father and His Will, just as a child that got denied the candy they craved on the store shelf or the teenager who got denied the keys to the car on a Friday night, because the Father decided it was not good for us or that abstinence was more appropriate for us. We have to be subservient to the Father and His wishes!
Our desire and God’s Will are two different things! We often pray for certain events or for the prevention of certain events. We may pray for healing of ourselves or for others!
But we must recognize that our petty desires and ambitions, even nobel ones do not always align with God’s greater plan! We must accept the will of the Father, regardless of its immediate or even long term impact on us or our loved ones!
We must recognize even in difficulty the Father’s incredible love for us and that He wants what is best for us and desires always to be united with us! Even when tough love is being dished out for the day!
Seek always to be obedient and subservient to the Father and to let Love keep us united to Him!
Regardless of what comes our way today we must remain faithful to the knowledge of the depth of the Father’s love for us!
The Father Always wants what is best for us, even if we don’t always understand, and even at great pains and at a Great Price!
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16.
Faith, Love, Forgiveness, and Acceptance of the Father’s will = Family Unity!
You might have been disappointed when you didn’t get handed the keys to the car, but wait till you discover what He really has in store for you is the keys to the Kingdom!
Happy Fathers Day!
