My Father, My God

He will call out to me, ‘You are my Father, my God, the Rock my Savior.’ Psalm 89:26

David called out to God the Father like this throughout the Psalms. As he was being chased and hunted down, there wasn’t a lot of “fluff” to his prayers. It was the prayer of a desperate man in need of a loving God.

Jesus too called out to God the Father in a similar manner. He knew the answer to the question, “Why have you forsaken me?” He knew what the “end” would be like for him, as painful as it would be. He knew He had to suffer horribly.

Both called out to God in their time of need. We don’t quite understand the agony both were under, though we do deal with our own agonies.

It’s never wrong to call out to God the Father both day and night. We can certainly learn from their examples.
