Abba, Daddy

Good Morning Gorgeous,

It’s a brand new day. A fresh start. A new day to walk in victory. No longer slaves to fear or sin or heavy burdens. You have been given title as son or daughter, and that title brings freedom. You are free to walk out your relationship with the Lord as His child. And the New Testament teaches us to call Him, Abba. This is significant because it means daddy. And what father doesn’t melt when his children call out for him, “Daddy!”

It’s an intimate relationship where a child trusts that their father is going to meet their every need. We generally use the term, “daddy” when we are younger and fully dependent on our parents. And that is the relationship that the Lord is inviting us into with Him. To lean on Him, fully trust Him, cry out to Him, take Him at His Word, and to follow His leading into the good, good things that He has prepared and planned for us.

When my daughter wants out of her crib she yells, “Daddy, I need you.” How sweet and irresistible is that? So of course, dad comes running and gets her out.

Our Father in Heaven is the same. He has invited us to relate to Him as young, innocent children in the area of trust, dependence, and obedience. He wants us to live free to move about the earth as empowered sons and daughters who can focus on our God given purposes and missions while knowing that we are secure and protected and provided for by our Daddy in Heaven.

So today move like you have all of heaven backing you, because you do.

Pray like your daddy is right there, because He is.

Trust that your needs will be met, because He will provide.

Act in confidence that God will keep every promise, because He will.

Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank You for Your precious Words that invite us into an intimate child and daddy relationship with You. You are so good and worthy of all our hearts and devotion.

Thank You for being a good, good Father.

In Jesus’s name, Amen
