Words of Encouragement
April - 06 - 2008
The first vocalizations of many babies are the syllables "ab, ab, ba, ba." Not surprisingly in Jesus' day, that was the name babies used for their fathers. When God saved us, he gave us his Spirit. The Holy Spirit blesses us in many ways, but one of the key blessings is his work with us in prayer. He intercedes for us when words won't do (Romans 8:26-27) and he helps us approach God with familiarity, dependency, and respect as we call God our Abba.
Let us turn and read Galatians 4:6.
Because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into our hearts, crying, "Abba! Father!"
Let us go to our heavenly Father in prayer.
Abba Father, thank you so much for loving us, saving us, and inviting us into your family. Thank you for the Holy Spirit, who is helping us right now as we share our thoughts, words, and emotions with you. Thank you, dear Father, for giving us the power to be what you want us to be.
In Jesus' name.
