Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love he predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will—to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One He loves”. Ephesians 1:3–6 (NIV)
You, precious one, are loved with the same kind of intensity, with the same kind of purity of love, as Jesus is by the Father. Accepted, past, present and future, by your Gracious God, who is committed to, and crazy about, you! And as God’s own special treasure, you are loved with an everlasting love by Jesus too!
God is everything right and pure and good, and He is yours, beloved—constantly, consistently, continually, world without end, always and forever, with unwavering care and devotion—yours. And you, beauty, are completely His!
Celebrate and rejoice, deeply cherished child of the Most-High God. You are your Father’s favourite. His age-enduring, limitless, unending and unwavering love, is fully focused on, and directed towards you. His glistening glory rests upon you; His divine wrap-around presence your strength and your shield.
I am not sure I have ever felt like anyone’s favorite, Lord, never mind that I could be that for You! However, I accept today, this truth. I accept the position I have in You, and the newness of life that comes with it too.
Not because I am worthy Lord, but because Jesus has made it so. I am Your child, the One You love, the recipient of Your goodness and grace.
Oh, praise You Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, that it could be so. I celebrate this good news today, and I celebrate You!
