Experiencing Him As Father

Mat 6:9

“After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. ”

God, our heavenly Father, loves each one of us better than any earthly father ever can. Our heavenly Father knows our needs, wants, weaknesses and doubts. “For your Father knows the things you have need of before you ask Him,” Mat 6:9. He longs to be apart of our lives so He can light our paths, direct our footsteps, and pick us up each time we fall. We know Him as God but He wants us to experience Him as our Father.

Let's take a look at Jesus' relationship with the Father.

“He went away again the second time, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if this cup may not pass away from me, except I drink it, thy will be done.” Mat 26:42

“Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things.” John 8:28

“If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love.” Joh 15:10

Jesus submitted to the will of the Father, was taught by the Father and loved by the Father. Through Christ we can have this same experience because He is the way the Father, Joh 14:6. We have been adopted and can cry out Abba Father, Romans 8:15. A literal way of translating the word Abba is Daddy – that close, intimate, loving word many kids use in addressing their fathers. God wants to be known as our ultimate Daddy.

To those who have been abused by the actions of your earthly fathers, let me encourage you, run to God – your heavenly father – who always loves you, always cares for you, and can always, always be trusted – even to the point where He will never, ever let you down.

Psalm 27:10

“When my father and my mother forsake me, then the LORD will take me up.”
