The lyrics for My Abba is inspired by Jeremiah 29:11. The Lord God Abba has thoughts of peace towards me.
11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.Jeremiah 29:11
This promise was given by Abba God through Jeremiah to the nation of Israel after they have been defeated and exiled. In a time of uncertainty, Abba has promised them peace.
In the same manner, we can claim this promise for ourselves.
