My Father, God!



"And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the
Spirit of His Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.
Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son;
And if a son, then an heir of God through Christ."
Gal. 4:6-7
Oh, the costly and precious privilege of looking up to
this great, this holy Lord God, and exclaiming
Father, God!
It is in this character He would have you recognize
Him; in this relation He would have you come to Him;
in this light He would have you view and interpret all
His dealings both of mercy and of judgment.

Hesitate not, then, beloved, in all your needs and
trials, in all your mental and spiritual depressions,
in all your conscious waywardness and disobedience,
and in all the corrections and rebukes of His discipline;
hesitate not still to love Him, to trust in Him, to
submit to Him as your Father.

Are you in need? He is pledged to supply it.
Are you bereaved? His hand has done it.
Are you sick? His providence has sent it.
Are you in the garden of sorrowwith the cup of
adversity trembling in your hand? Take it, drink it,
looking up to Him with a filial, loving, submissive
spirit, and exclaiming, "The cup which My Father
has given me
shall I not drink it?"
(Octavius Winslow, "Our God")
