JULY 17

Our Abba Father  

“And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of His Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.” Galatians 4:6

Do you know what “Abba” means?  It means “Daddy Father.” Have you ever thought about God as your Daddy? When Jesus taught us to pray “Our Father” in Matthew 6:9, He uses the same Greek word “Pater” – “Abba Father.” American children say, “Da - Da.”  But in the Middle East they say, “Abba - Abba.”

Jesus says that we can call the great God of the universe “Daddy.” I’m so glad that our Heavenly Father never gets too busy running this universe and commanding the angels that He forgets us. He wants to be with you as if there were no one else on earth and nothing else for Him to do.

Do you wish you had a hug right now? You can crawl up into the lap of your Daddy Father. 

He has nothing better to do than to give you a hug.
