19 Jan 2022: WHEN FATHERS ARE ABSENT (2) – Esther 4:12-14, Genesis 18:19

A young girl came to see me for counselling years ago. She was a nursing student in South West Nigeria. She wrote a letter to us and said she wanted to commit suicide because she didn’t know why she came to the world. She said she didn’t know how God could create someone with a nose like hers.

I replied to her not to kill herself but should come over so we could talk. And when she came to see me after the service that Sunday, I looked at the people waiting, and I didn’t see anybody with a funny nose. So, I said, “Where is the girl with the nose problem?” She came out and said she was the one. I said, “Wahoo! You are beautiful, your nose is alright.” I’m sure somebody must have made a funny statement to her when she was young about her nose and there was no father to make a counter-statement.

There was no father to have made a pre-statement before the derogatory statement came to her.

Every father should make correct statements into the spirits, the recesses of the souls of their children before somebody sent by the devil begins to tell them something wrong.

They should be able to reply to such agents of the devil that, “It’s too late. I already know who I am. I already know that my height is alright. I already know that my size is alright. I already know that my face is alright. My father has already told me. I heard that even while I was in the womb.”

PRAYER: I pray for every male reading this sharing, may God raise you as a correct father in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Genesis 39:1-41:16, Matthew 12:46-13:23, Psalm 17:1-15, Proverbs 3:33-35
