One of the greatest truth to be revealed out of the Holy Scriptures to a believer is, God loves us as much as He loves Jesus. Hear the very own words of Jesus who said, "I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved Me." (John 17:23). In other words, Jesus himself has prayerd the above words as a prayer to our Father in heaven to make the heart of believers His temple through the Holy Spirit, so that the perfection of God's love and life coming out of us through this interpenetration with God might become a testimony to the world that Jesus has truly been sent by God and that through Him the love of God will be shared to all men who believe Jesus and become one with God.
The greatest priviledge we have in this earthly life as a believer is to call God as our Father. During the Old Testament times, if anybody called God as his Father, they would stone him to death. Nobody had such priviledge in this life. Even Jesus during his ministry time, when he revealed to the Jewish people the truth about God becoming their Father, they became angry against him. Once a person reveals himself as the Son of God, they considered it as making himself at par with God (John 5:18). To the Jews this is blashphemy against God. But Jesus was really the Son of God who did finally describe his real identity as the "I AM" to the Jews, who is nobody other than their Jehovah God of Abraham their Father. These Jews who saw Jesus as just a man one among them, but failed to understand the supernatural origin of his virgin birth (Matt 1:18-23, 25), took up stones to throw at him. But Jesus supernaturally hid Himself going through the midst of them because of God's power acting through him (John 8:53-59). Even in our times because of lack of belief in the word of God, many have no understanding of Jesus as God Himself in the flesh. This is actually the work of the spirit of Antichrist to make people deny Jesus as the Son of God in the flesh, and as a result of it make them continue to live in the darkness of Satanic Kingdom which will make them to be destroyed in the end without God (1 John 4:2-3).
Jesus after His death, got resurrected and triumphantly declared to Mary the following golden words, who actually came in search of his dead body in the tomb but was exhilarated to find Jesus. There Jesus said to Mary, "...“Do not cling to Me, for I have not yet ascended to My Father; but go to My brethren and say to them, ‘I am ascending to My Father and your Father, and to My God and your God.’”" (John 20:17). Dear saint who is reading this, are you not as exhilarated as Mary was, you must be because this is the first time Jesus was expressing that God who has been His Father and God has become ours too. Jesus has spoken the phrases "your Father" and "your God" seperately many times during his God ordained ministry days on earth (Mark 12:30; Matt 6:6), but together Jesus bridged "your Father" and "your God", and spoke to us together only after he died for our sins and justified all of us who believed him before God (Rom 5:1; John 20:17). Having become justified through Jesus, in others words having become just as if we have never sinned before the eyes of God, we have become God's children forever. O what a priviledge!
Because God has become our Father now, we can understand Him and call Him as our Abba Father or Daddy God. The Holy Spirit who has been sent by Jesus in to our heart is already making us to dare call our God as our Daddy (Rom 8:15). We can share all our problems that are trying to clog our mind to our heavenly dad daily. For example, pets, marriage, unemployment, fear, car stuffs, finances, parents, cancer, anxiety, family, children, moving to a new location, nothingness or a sort of emptiness we feel in your soul, relationship gone haywire, death of loved ones, pergnancy of your spouse, retirement and the feeling of worthlessness that comes with it, divorce and its pain, worry that makes you tensed up, loneliness because of lack of friends, weariness because of ill health, betrayal from friends who have suddenly turned in to foes, foreclosure because of lack of income and illness because of some incurable disease can all bring so much mental pain and agony to any one who lives in this earth without the assurance and strength that can lift the child of God to a heavenly hope and makes them receive a joy of God's Presence in to their heart because of God's love towards them. So if you have not yet dared to call God as your Father, just say to Jesus to come in to your heart and thank Him for forgiving all your sins. Then make it a habit to give all your problems to daddy God in heaven who is in the buisness of solving all the problems of his children (Psa 34:17). To those who are unable to speak to our Daddy God because of all your extreme pain, just remember to say, "MY GOD IS BIGGER THAN ANY PROBLEMS I FACE." Before you realize, a new strength of heaven will quicken you and make you look not to your problems which are temporary but to our Daddy who is our Father who gives the solutions to every problems we face. Our Daddy God changes our situations or else changes us though our situations. Whether our God and Father changes us or the situation, remember it is all for our good that he allows it in our life. I said He allows because OUR DADDY GOD IN HEAVEN IS NOT ONLY BIGGER THAN OUR PROBLEMS BUT HE IN THE ONE IN CONTROL OF IT. So through the situations, the heat of the trial cannot go out of control because the supernatural thermostat is in our Daddy God's hand!
