“Having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved.” Ephesians 1:5-6, NKJV
Growing up as a child, I longed for the embrace my mother gave me. No one could give the kind of bear hugs my dad gave. And when I would visit my grandma, she would care for me and love me in such a way that no one could replicate. The special, unique touches of a loved one can never be forgotten. As time has moved on, I have missed those special moments.
Jesus made a way where there seemed to be none. The wall of separation was done away with by His precious blood. Today, with Him. we can receive a love and a touch like no other. We are accepted as God’s children and are considered His Beloved.
In life, you may not have had the privilege of a mom or dad. You may not have been loved at all. You may think you understand true love. I am here to tell you that no one loves like Jesus. He will make you His queen. He will love you in such a way that you will forget about what you were once lacking. He will twirl you around and sweep you off your feet. He will lift up your chin and remind you that in looking to Him is freedom. He will hold you through every storm and trial. He will protect you. He will fight your battles and always deliver you from the evil one. Once you have met Jesus, you will never be the same. Receive a love today that will be for all eternity. Be loved as His Beloved.
Prayer: Lord, I receive Your love today that has always been there waiting for me. Today I ask that You come into my heart like never before. I pray You captivate my soul like no other. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
(Read Ephesians 2:18; 1 John 3:1; Zephaniah 3:17)
