“All who are being led by the Spirit of God, these are the sons of God.”
Take a few moments with this love letter from your Father’s heart to yours. Read it, receive it, celebrate it, and delight in this awesome revelation from His Word. Be still, quiet your busy mind, and rest in your Abba Father.
To my beloved child,
Before I wove you in your mother’s womb, I knew you. I formed your inward parts. Before you were born, I set you apart. You are fearfully and wonderfully made in My likeness. I breathed the breath of My life into you. I have carried you until this day.
I am your Father, and you are the apple of My eye. With My strong hand and outstretched arm, I have poured out My everlasting love, kindness, and grace on you. My face shines constantly on you. I hold your hand. I will never leave you or forsake you.
I have seen your tears, and I have carefully saved each one. Be still and know Me. Cast every burden, every worry, on Me. I will sustain you. Let your spirit take refuge in Me. You are secure in the shadow of My wings.
No weapon formed against you will prosper, for I am your shield and your defense. I give My angels the charge to guard you in all your ways. I am the Shelter of your life.
I am near you right now. Listen carefully and quietly as I sing a song of love over you. Rest now as I renew My love in you. How beautiful you are to Me! O how you delight Me!
Come and walk with Me beside quiet waters. Let Me gently restore your weary soul. Taste and see my goodness. Delight yourself in Me, My beloved.
I will give you a new name and the crown of life. You will eat from the tree of life, which is in the Paradise of My presence. I will clothe you in pure white garments. You will sit one day with Me on My throne.
Today, seek Me with all your heart. I am not hiding. I want you to find Me. Open your mouth wide, and I will fill it! I will satisfy you. Watch and see!
I love you without measure,
