My love imparts belonging.
Now a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son belongs to it forever. NIV
Long before I created the world, I chose you to become part of My eternal family My dear child. For in the very fabric of your heart, I wove into you the need to belong. So if you ever feel like you are on the outside looking in, reject that lie and embrace the truth.
The truth that will set you free is that you belong to My family forever! You are not a servant or a slave, but a much celebrated member of My royal household. You are My beloved heir, and even now, you are seated at My right hand in the heavenly realms in Christ.
So take a deep breath and receive a fresh affirmation of My steadfast love for you. For the same words that I spoke over Jesus at His baptism, I speak over you today... 'This is My dear child whom I love and am well pleased!'
