Our Daily Bread 9 August 2018 Devotional – A Good Daddy



Our Daily Bread 9 August 2018 Devotional

Topic: A Good Daddy

Read: Psalm 63, Bible in a Year: Psalms 77–78; Romans 10

Scripture: On my bed I remember you; I think of you through the watches of the night. Psalm 63:6

Message: When our son, Xavier, was younger, business trips often pulled my husband away from home. Though his father called often, there were rough nights when the calls alone didn’t comfort Xavier. To help soothe our son when he felt he needed his dad, I’d pull out our photo albums as he prepared for bedtime. I’d point out the images that showed them spending time together and ask, “Do you remember this?”

Memory after memory encouraged our son, who often said, “I have a good daddy.”

I understood Xavier’s need to be reminded of his father’s love when he couldn’t see him. Whenever I’m going through tough or lonely times, I too long to know I’m loved, especially by my heavenly Father.

David proclaimed his deep yearning for God as he hid from his enemies in the desert (Psalm 63:1). Remembering his personal encounters with God’s limitless power and satisfying love led him to praise (vv. 2–5). Through his most difficult nights, David could still rejoice in his dependable Father’s loving care (vv. 6–8).

During our dark times, when we feel as if God’s not there for us, we need reminders of who God is and how He’s demonstrated His love. Reflecting on our personal experiences with Him, as well as His actions recorded in Scripture, can affirm the countless ways our good Abba Father loves us.

Prayer: Lord, thanks for demonstrating Your endless love to Your people, in our lives and through the words You preserved in Scripture.

Thought for the Day: Remembering God’s works, which reveal His character, reassures us of His love.
