Hey Father, Satan Wants Your Boy

You da man! Right? Then stand up, sir. As a father, particularly a father of boys, you’ve got some important work to do!

These young boys are fighting a pretty tough battle in this day and age. Sure, it’s always been there, but now there’s not a lot of good role models out there. Never mind the fact, that no matter what channel you turn the tv to there’s some in-your-face sexually suggestive theme on. Hell, you don’t even have to turn on the tv; just pick up that nifty little device we’ve all got on ourselves, and you’ve literally got the world at your fingertips.

So, what can a father really do, you ask? Why sure, I’d love to give you my two cents! Thanks for asking.

Fathers have to commit, as the men that they are, to stand in the gap for their boys. It’s the honorable thing to do!

They need to constantly be praying for their boys, even pray with them, which is a really fantastic choice. When they see or find out about these young boys’ wrong acts, they need to express disapproval for it. It’s not uncommon today, to see it just get brushed off with a “boys will be boys” cop out.

And probably most important, fathers need to inspire their boys, to be followers of God. Follow Him with every piece of their heart! And you know what this means, don’t you, men? It means that your boys inspiration will have to come from you, and from you following God!

I know it’s not easy. Because I’m the mom of one of these boys.

Father vs Mother

But there’s some things that just won’t have the same effect, if it’s coming from Mom. Guess what, though? I’ve got the girls! They’ve got demons all their own. And yes, you’ll still be needed in that area, too. To set the standard for what type of man they’ll choose one day.

As far as our boys, though…Men, I pray you’ll set them up with a godly example to follow. We need more of this very rare breed.

Commitment to Lead

I’m committed to being a spiritual leader for our family. Every home should have at least one, if not both, of the parents commitment to lead the younger family members.

More importantly, I’m making a commitment to lead by tapping into God’s strength. Is there really any other way to do it? Because I’m certainly not strong enough on my own!

I’m just an extremely messy and imperfect woman. God’s pulling for us to succeed. That’s powerful all on its own!

God knows it’s important for my life, being successful in this commitment. Because what happens if I’m not? I’m more prone to feeling guilty, which certainly doesn’t come from Him, and once I start giving into one false mindset then others will surely follow.

He also knows that it’s important, for my family’s sake, that I’m successful in my commitment to lead. Our future means something to Him! All of ours.

The only way I can do this, besides doing it with God, is to be purposeful with my time. I’ve got to constantly stay in the Word, and keep growing myself, so that I can have some direction as to how I lead my children.

It would be completely irresponsible to go in blindly, thumping my chest and saying “Me! I’m the leader.” Just because I’m a parent and it’s essentially my job to lead them, doesn’t mean I automatically have all the tools to do it successfully. I’ve got to work at it! The same as I’d need to with any other commitment.

Relevant Verses: Commitment

“If God were your father,” said Jesus, “you’d love me, for I came from Him and arrived here. I didn’t come on my own. He sent me. Why can’t you understand one word I say?

Here’s why: You can’t handle it. You’re from your father, the Devil, and all you want to do is please him. He was a killer from the very start. He couldn’t stand the truth because there wasn’t a shred of truth in him. When the Liar speaks, he makes it up out of his lying nature and fills the world with lies. I arrive on the scene, tell you the plain truth, and you refuse to have a thing to do with me. Can any one of you convict me of a single misleading word, a single sinful act? But if I’m telling the truth, why don’t you believe me? Anyone on God’s side listens to His words. This is why you’re not listening..because you’re not on His side.” John 8:42-47 MSG
