October 11th – Jeremiah 3:19

Jeremiah 3:19

God’s Promise – “I am happy to treat you as My child, and I hope you will call Me Father.”

Of the many names for God, one of the most beautiful is “Abba”. And what a wonderful privilege it is for us who are nothing but mere dust, to call the Creator of all things Father. We call Him such because as He Himself declares, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you.” (Jer. 1:5) Think of that! Even before the first beat of our hearts, God knew everything there is to know about us. And not only did God fearfully and wonderfully create us, (Ps. 139:14) He knows us by name,(John 10:3), how long we will live, (Ps. 139:16), and all we were created to be. (Eph. 2:10) And before we are born, He sets us apart for the purpose that is uniquely ours. Our Heavenly Father wants for nothing. Yet He wants us. Nothing bring Him greater joy than when one of His children comes home. Because He longs to guide, love, comfort, and most of all, to call us His!
