In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, O LORD, will keep me safe.
Psalm 4:8 (NLT)
In the Lord’s Prayer Jesus, told us to pray to God saying, “Our Father.” And then He told us to ask our Heavenly Father to do His will on earth, as it is in heaven. There is peace in knowing a loving Father, a mighty Father, and an all wise Father. David knew God in that way and even during troubled times he could commit himself to the loving arms of God when he was about to sleep. His Father would keep him safe. Paul confirmed this when he wrote, “So you have not received a spirit that makes you fearful slaves. Instead, you received God’s Spirit when he adopted you as his own children. Now we call him, “Abba, Father.” We can come to God and call Him our loving Father, Daddy or Papa. It is through this re-fathering that we will know lasting peace. Isaiah assured us of this when he wrote, to God His Father, “You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you!” Today, come to your Heavenly Father. Trust Him and He will give you peace.
Dear Father, help me to know You in this deep paternal sense. Re-father me I pray. Help me to grow into the child You have created me to be.
