Ever need a shoulder to cry on? Sometimes in those moments we look around and there’s no one there. As Christians we can enjoy a relationship with our heavenly father that is more comforting than any shoulder.
In one of the darkest hours Jesus ever faced on this earth, Jesus went to His Father. Notice how He addressed Him, Jesus called God in Mark 14:36, "Abba, Father." When Jesus needed comfort and restoration, He went to His Father and asked for strength.
Now let’s take a look at a Galatians 4:6. It says, "And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father." If you didn’t understand what you just read, I would read that again. God says that He gave us the spirit of His Son. Just like Jesus went to the Father in His darkest hour, we can go to the Father in ours. We are children of God just as Jesus is. We have just as much right to go to our heavenly Father as He does.
I would like to encourage you. No matter what trial you are facing, go to God. Just like He strengthened His firstborn and begotten Son, He will strengthen you. Start taking advantage of the adoption you have through salvation. You will never be the same, if you do.
"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." – Romans 8:15
