The Building Blocks of Faith Part 4 – “Who is the Father?”

The Building Blocks of Faith Part 4
“Who is the Father?”

The building blocks of faith

“Where lives change and where life can begin again”

When we are building our faith one block at a time, we are being careful

with the foundation of our faith. These blocks are to ensure the security

of your faith and to examine our lives to know if we have built a firm

foundation to our faith. Without faith, it is impossible to please God.

(Hebrews 11:6) We can’t go through life with the same mindset we had

in the world, but we must renew our mind and grow daily in the truths

that are revealed to us within the Word of God. Knowing who we are

and realizing the important role that Jesus plays in our lives as

Christians and sons and daughters of God. As we build these blocks of

strength and confidence in our walk with God, there will be nothing that

will shake our faith foundation.

This week we are talking about “Who is the Father”? What does

scriptures say?

Exodus 3:14 (KJV)

14 And God said unto Moses, I Am That I Am: and he said, Thus shalt

thou say unto the children of Israel, I Am hath sent me unto you.

Revelation 22:13 (NIV)

13 I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning

and the End.

1 John 4:8 (NIV)

8 Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.

There are so many scriptures that describe the “Father”.

I want to share something personal with you to help you understand

how personal the Father is or can be. When I was 16 years old, my

parents had been divorced for at least 10 years at that time. I had not

seen my father but longed to see him for maybe 5 of those 10 years.

Many important things were happening in my life that I wanted to share

with my father, but it did not seem important to him. In your teenage

years you begin to be in search of more to define who you are, and I

needed to know who I was. Everything was important to me.

A group of teenagers and young adults introduced me to Jesus and I

began to read my bible, which they gave me. I didn’t have a bible of my

own. Then as I read, the Father began to talk to me when I was all alone

in my room reading my bible. He expressed to me, “I am your Father. I

will always be with you and I will lead you, if you let me.” I wanted to let

him. As I heard those words, they comforted me, and I began my

search of who I was through the words that I read in scripture. The

words began to define me, and after that, I always knew He loved me,

and He was watching over me. From that point on, I walked with my


God, the Father, has been there since the beginning of time. God is

spirit, and you cannot touch him with your physical hand, but you

touch him with your heart. As your heart reaches out for God, He

reaches back and touches you in every part of your life.

John 4:24 (NKJV)

24 God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and


We cannot connect to God in the natural or physical, because He is not

physical or part of this natural world. He is a part of the spiritual realm

that He has allowed us to connect with through His son Jesus Christ. As

we have made Jesus the Lord over our lives, a spiritual realm of

understanding is open to us. We then can communicate with God and

He to us. As the scripture says, “…those that worship Him, must

worship Him in spirit and truth.” Our spirit man connects with God and

then true communication is established. That is what happened to me

that night, I opened my line of communication by coming to him in

spirit and truth in my heart.

The Father is standing always with arms wide open longing for

connection with His children.

Romans 10:21 (NKJV)

21 But to Israel he says:

“All day long I have stretched out My hands

To a disobedient and contrary people.”

Israel was God’s chosen children, and now we are adopted into that

family. God stretches forth his hands to us each morning desiring to

walk with us and talk with us. Like a natural father, but so much

greater, He loves us and desires the best for our lives and He will never

leave us.

Deuteronomy 31:6 (NKJV)

6 Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for

the Lord your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave

you nor forsake you.”

Our Heavenly Father is the one who will hear you, see you, be with you,

and love you always. He will guide you, strengthen you, comfort you,

and pick you up when you have fallen. He is a “Father” forever and


As you draw near to the Father, He will draw near to you. Look up! Your

Father draws near!
