Our Father in Heaven
Your Kingdom come swiftly Matthew 6:9-13 (CEB)
Our Father who is in heaven,
uphold the holiness of your name.
10 Bring in your kingdom
so that your will is done on earth as it’s done in heaven.
11 Give us the bread we need for today.
12 Forgive us for the ways we have wronged you,
just as we also forgive those who have wronged us.
13 And don’t lead us into temptation,
but rescue us from the evil one.
This prayer that Jesus uses to teach His disciples to pray is so rich in practicality, simple, yet deep, humble, yet bold…who dare speak it, who dare meditate on it, will be changed.
Our Father…lets just meditate on that for a week. Our Father, do you believe that Jehovah, the Great I AM, Creator of the universe, the stars and planets alike, the one who breathed life into existence on earth desires for us to call Him Father, but not just that but Daddy?! “You didn’t receive a spirit of slavery to lead you back again into fear, but you received a Spirit that shows you are adopted as his children. With this Spirit, we cry, “Abba, Father.” (Romans 8:15)
Do you realize the magnitude of that TRUTH, Abba or Daddy as we would translate it, an intimate rendering of Father. He desires intimacy with us as Daddy, He commands respect from us as Father.
This week meditate on [Y]our Father.
you are loved,
