    Now, to today’s devotional
     
    Romans 8:15 (KJV) 

    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.
     
    When we got saved by Jesus, we were adopted as children of God.
     
    We are no longer servants, we actually become sons and daughters.

The word Abba means Father.
     
    Why then is Apostle Paul making a repetition, more like saying Father Father?
     
    You see, he is trying to show us the affectionate spirit within this relationship. Abba is such a loving word used for father that servants and slaves are never allowed to use that word.
     
    To interpret it as Daddy even limits the whole thing and the nearest explanation is to use that word, Sugar Daddy!
     
    You see, the sugar daddy in the world is looking for something and then he will pamper his way into what he wants.
     
    But God is different. He is not trying to abuse and manipulate, He just wants to pamper us as His beloved children.
     
    Let’s go deeper.
     
    Isaiah 66:12 (AMP) 

    For thus says the Lord: Behold, I will extend peace to her like a river, and the glory of the nations like an overflowing stream; then you will be nursed, you will be carried on her hip and trotted [ lovingly bounced up and down ] on her [ God's maternal ] knees.
     
    Wow! God will lovingly bounce you on His knees!
     
    What a God we have? Abba Father!
     
    This is the kind of love we have access to through the adoption of the Spirit.
     
    And this i why we can call Him Abba Father!

     
    Message Translation puts it this way,
    Romans 8:15 (MSG)
    
This resurrection life you received from God is not a timid, grave-tending life. It's adventurously expectant, greeting God with a childlike "What's next, Papa?"
     
    Can you see that?
     
    If you understand that God is your Abba Father, your Sugar Daddy, you will not allow the devil to attack your mind with guilt.
     
    I have three sons.
     
    My first son is writing GCE. He is matured. My second son is on his way to senior class. My last son is rounding up in Primary school. 

They all call me Father. Daddy. And that word evokes a deep compassion in my relationship with them.
     
    Have they made mistakes? Yes! Did I disown them? Never! Did I send them out of the house? Never! 

Why then do we think that God is capable of punishing us because of past mistakes? Why do we find it difficult to accept His forgiveness? Why do we think inflicting pain on ourselves will make Him forgive us quickly? Why do we find it difficult to trust in His love and mercy which endures forever?
     
    Listen to me, this God is a loving God! Even when he chastises us, He does it in love!
     
    He is full of tender mercies.
     
    Stop having guilt trips. He has forgiven you and forgotten about it.
     
    Stop feeling bad over what happened when you were just a kid.
     
    Move on and let the Abba Father embrace you in His love.
     
    God is not a slave owner, He is Abba Father. 

God is not a task master, He is my Sugar Daddy!
     
    God is not a terminator, He is a restorer!
     
    Embrace His love like a child.
     
    A child enjoys the pampering of his parents and never says it is too much.
     
    Let God’s mercy and benevolence flow over your destiny like fresh waters over a dry land.
     
    You see, the problem is often as a result of being unloved or maltreated by our earthy fathers or benefactors. 

And we usually see God with the eyes of our fathers or the father figure around us.
     
    So, if that father figure is cruel, insensitive and unloving, we unconsciously think God is like that.
     
    But I am telling you this morning, God is not like your earthly fathers!


     
    Luke 11:11-13 (KJV)
    
If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he give him a stone? or if he ask a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent? [12] Or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion? [13] If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?
     
    God is ever ready, ever loving, ever merciful to reach out to you today.
     
    Embrace and respond to that love!
     
    There is healing in his love. There is strength in His love!

     
    I pray for you this morning, God will come through for you in Jesus name! The love of God will overwhelm you and He will encourage you this week, this month in Jesus name!
     
    In the next seven days, experience the tender mercies of God like never before! His mercies will surround you. His favour will go before you! In Jesus name!
