I woke up this morning with a change of mentality. It really started yesterday with me reading Galatians 5&6 and seeing the words, "Abba, Father". It was brought to my attention that this same phrase was used in Roman 8. And then I found it in the the 14th Chapter of Luke verse 36. "Abba, Father". So while sturggling to pray this morning, I was led to read these scriptures and the change of mentality took place.
The word that I got was to pray to God as 'Abba, Father', not just as God, but as my Heavenly Father because He has recieved me as a son[2 Corinthians 6:17-18]. As a Father, the LORD Almighty, PROVIDES, GUIDES, HEALS and CARES for His sons and daughters. What a wonderful Father we have. Then another collection of scriptures opened up to me as I looked at God as Father; [Luke 12:29-34]"Seek the kingdom of God and all these things shall be added to you." What was revealed to me in these scriptures was that if I would seek God as 'Abba, Father' and His blessings(provision, guidance, and will for my life), the things that I have need of will be added to me. It was shown to me that I was trying to seek His "kingdom", which is my inheritance, instead of seeking to "please" Him, who is my Father. In the Gospel of Mark, Chapter 1, verse 11, a voice came from heaven saying, "You are My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased." Of course the voice is God speaking to His Son Jesus expressing 'pleasure' in Him. This is what we ought to be seeking and what He our Father is looking for; "beloved children, in whom He is well pleased."
After making my "request" known to "Abba, Father" this morning, I am expecting excellent things to be added to me soon and I know that He is expecting excellent things from me as well.
