The privilege of calling GOD “My Father!” – Jeremiah 3:4

Sad but true, some people can no longer call God ‘My Father’, as recorded in Jeremiah 3:4. These are the damned and dejected in hell fire. These are those that have abandoned the call to salvation through Jesus Christ while living in this world. Study the testimony of Mary K. Baxter to learn about this honour that is only available for the living through the Mercies of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

It is therefore a great privilege to take pleasure of calling God ‘My Father’. Saying ‘My Father’ is a child’s cry, not always for help but sometimes for attention. This cry has a full meaning to declare to observers and hearers that there is love shared amongst the two. It sounds a word of comfort to the caller. It is a title which the Lord loves to hear us use!

Believers from that as they have been given the right to being children of God (John 1:12), they can call to ‘My Father’ for the following:


  • Repair in trouble
  • Look up to Him in difficulty
  • Cry to Him when in danger
  • Ask from Him when in need

God Himself will respond in various ways, including the following:


  • Speaking to you through the Holy Bible
  • Try you by His providence
  • Chasten you with His rod
  • Purify and cleanse you
  • Humbles and reproves you

His powers are visible in the following:


  • He supports the world
  • Controls the nations
  • Chains up Satan
  • Comforts the believer
  • Pardons the backslider

I therefore exhort you to trust your Father’s Word, abide in your Father’s house, expect from your Father’s hand, and say in every trial:
“I will arise and go to my Father!”
