“Whenever a round of banqueting was over, Job would send for his children and purify them, rising early in the morning to offer burnt offerings for all of them. For Job thought: Perhaps my children have sinned, having cursed God in their hearts. This was Job's regular practice.” --Job 1:5
A personal testimony I would like to share with you, with a focus on daughters.
A father who covers his daughter;
Invests all that God has given him so she can reach her full potential, purpose or destiny.
Identifies her gifts and trains her so her gifts can bear fruit.
Provides a roof over her head and declares it a place of safety for her.
Protects all the intricate areas of her being, cultivating her identity and raising her self-esteem.
Understands that if she ever loses her way or falls astray, he will love her back to health without any guilt or shame.
Helps her find the lamp unto her feet and the light unto her path that leads her right to the heart of God.
The following should come from a father;
A daughter’s first picture of a healthy relationship with a man
A daughter’s first diamond
A daughter’s first physical loving touch
A daughter’s first expensive dinner
A daughter’s first “I love you”
A daughter’s first words affirming her value and identity
If a man comes to her and takes her out for an expensive dinner, gives her diamonds, and says I love you and has a hidden agenda, she won’t be easily impressed because her father did it first.
