1 John 3:1
See how very much our Father loves us, for he calls us his children, and that is what we are! But the people who belong to this world don’t recognize that we are God’s children because they don’t know him. NLT
It is the very nature of My love to be affirming. For I am your true Father and I have called you My beloved child.
Because you belong to Me, I am continually pouring out My great love upon you day in and day out. Whether you are aware of it or not, My eternal goodness is like a tidal wave of affirmation that is flowing to you and through you... On good days and bad days and every day in between.
My love is a constant that you can know and rely on, to help you face whatever comes your way today. My love does not come to you because you have earned it or deserved it. My love flows to you because you are My precious little one and you bring much joy to My heart.
When you begin to believe this at a deeper level, you will stop trying to work for My approval because you will know you already have it. Just as I declared My words of affirmation and delight over My Son at His baptism, I declare the same words over you...
You are My beloved child. In you I am well pleased!
