One of the last prophetic words that Malachi spoke was in (Malachi 4:5-6) where he said “Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord, and he shall turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.”
What a word to fathers! The Lord was trying to let us know that he needs fathers to be in their rightful place. He was trying to let us know that if we expect the hearts of the children to be turned back to the father, that the father must be first partaker in turning his heart back to the children. However, before he can really turn his heart back to his children and lead them effectively he must first turn his heart to the Father of all fathers which is the Lord Jesus Christ and repent for his failure to effectively lead and love his children the way God would have him to. Therefore, let me encourage fathers everywhere to turn your heart to God so he can teach you how to lead and love your children.
God Bless You
