Devotional: No Greater Or More Costly Honor Can Be Bestowed Than Permission To Call Out “Abba, Father”

Romans 8:15
For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of Adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.

This afternoon as I was Skyping with Courtney and Katherine, Stephen came home from work.

It was so wonderful to see the sweet baby’s face light up with delight at the sound of her daddy’s arrival. She could not get to him fast enough!

How much more should we delight in our Heavenly Father and seek to be in His presence!

There truly could be no more honorable position for us than to be called a Child of God!

PRAYER

Heavenly Father
We give praise today
For willingness to pay what it cost You to adopt us

Glory to the Son of God
Who willingly shed His blood for us

And to the Holy Spirit
Who woos us into a saving relationship with the Redeemer and King

Thank You for the Word

We bow humbly, asking forgiveness for times we have chosen to follow our own free will
Rather than obeying in submission to Yours

Please give us thankful hearts
May we yield to You

In the Name of Jesus we pray,
To our All-Powerful
All-knowing
Magnificent
Abba, Father
AMEN

First, and most importantly, I love Jesus Christ and I trust in Him as my Lord and Savior. I was raised in a Christian home by a godly dad and mom (who planned and had me in July before turning 42 in August), and 5 older siblings. My father passed away when I was 7 and my mother (who went to be with the Lord in 2005 at 81) never remarried. As a child, I was bullied at school, so I did not have many friends. I didn't want to tell my mom this because I knew she had enough worry being a widow at 50. I know what it is like to be lonely. As an adult, God showed me the value of His Friendship and has blessed me, too, with rich relationships with dear friends who also love the Lord. My husband and I (married 31 years as of 2020), have three wonderful, adult children and son-in-law as well as three darling grandchildren. Along with many others, my husband lost his job, but we refuse to be fearful or angry. The Lord has provided for us and we are so thankful for the opportunity to express gratitude through personal contact and occasional memories I share through writing. I believe the Lord has given me a venue to engage with others and a means to share His Word. Thank you for checking out my page. I hope you enjoy what you read. If there is anything positive or insightful in the devotionals (NOT CALLING MY WRITING "INSPIRED" by any means!), I give all credit and glory to Jesus Christ! On the other side of that, when something makes no sense, that's all me
