“So, my very dear friends, don’t get thrown off course. Every desirable and beneficial gift comes out of heaven. The gifts are rivers of light cascading down from the Father of Light. There is nothing deceitful in God, nothing two-faced, nothing fickle. He brought us to life using the true Word, showing us off as the crown of all his creatures.” James 1:16-18 (MSG)
For all of us, there may be aspects of ourselves we want to keep hidden—how we look, what we think, how we feel; areas we have judged about yourself based on negative things others have said about us, true or not. Most often not.
Yet hear afresh beloved this astonishing news—God Who knows you inside and out, past, present, and all that is to come, is not hiding you in any way, who you are, or what you have done, He is loving, accepting, understanding, celebrating who you are, and showing off His beautiful and beloved, you!
You are the crowning touch of all of His creation. You are clothed in His righteousness—because Jesus has made you right, covering you in His miracle mercies and all sufficient grace. This same grace fills in all the missing pieces and makes all the broken bits whole.
He is not going to change His mind about any of this, for you are the apple of His eye. He is always speaking life, His life, over you, and He always will. Listen to the sound of His celebrations today—He is singing the most glorious love songs just for you! Oh beloved one, you are the joy of His heart. You are His dream come true!
