Devotional: There’s A Father for Everyone
On this Father’s Day, we reflect upon the life of King Solomon and the profound impact his fathers had on him. Solomon’s earthly father, David, was a man after God’s own heart, and his loss was deeply felt. Yet, in the midst of his grief, Solomon found solace and guidance from his Heavenly Father. In 1 Kings 3, we see Solomon seeking wisdom from God, and in response, God blessed him with extraordinary wisdom and discernment. Like Solomon, we too can find comfort in knowing that even in the absence of our earthly fathers, we have a Heavenly Father who longs to guide and instruct us.
Just as Solomon learned to rely on his Heavenly Father’s wisdom, we too can draw strength from God’s loving guidance. Our Heavenly Father knows us intimately and understands the intricate details of our lives. He is the perfect Father, always present, always ready to guide us through the challenges we face. In moments of uncertainty and confusion, we can turn to God in prayer, seeking His wisdom and trusting in His provision. Through His Word, the Bible, and through the Holy Spirit, God imparts His divine wisdom to those who seek Him earnestly. As we celebrate Father’s Day, let us remember the example of Solomon and draw closer to our Heavenly Father, knowing that in His arms, we find comfort, wisdom, and unconditional love.
