My Beloved Son Or Daughter,
Do you know that you are fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139:19)? You were created in My image (Genesis 1:27). You display My splendor (Isaiah 61:4) to the world around you!
Out of all the people on the earth, I know and love you individually. I know when you sit down, and when you arise (Psalm 139:2). I have numbered each hair on your head (Matthew 10:30). I am familiar with all of your ways (Psalm 139:3). You are Mine (Isaiah 43:1) – someone whom I so love that I gave My Son for them (John 3:16).
You need not be afraid to draw near to Me, for My Son took your place at the cross, so that you could be made right with Me (2 Corinthians 5:21). There’s no sin you could commit that My grace doesn’t far exceed (Romans 5:20). Know this, and approach My throne of grace with freedom and confidence (Hebrews 4:16)!
When I look at you, I see My Son’s perfection covering you. In Him, you have been perfected once and for all (Hebrews 10:14). You don’t have to earn right standing before Me, for I have clothed you in a robe of righteousness (Isaiah 61:10). I have done this not because of anything you have done, but because of what My Son has done for you.
I have chosen you (John 15:16). I have lavished My love upon you, and called you My child
(1 John 3:1). Know that in My eyes, you are cherished, valued, and treasured.
May You Begin To See Yourself As I See You,
Your Heavenly Father
