This morning, I am reminded of the celebration I get to have: my heavenly Father has chosen me. He has called me His daughter, and invites me into a daily relationship with Him. I never have to go through life alone, or without Him by my side.
My heavenly Father – who willingly chose me, adopted me into His family, sent His Son Jesus, lavishes His love onto me, and gives much better gifts than any in this world could give.
‘[T]o all who believed him and accepted him, he gave the right to become children of God.
They are… [given] a birth that comes from God (John 1:12-13).’
‘… Instead, you received God’s Spirit when he adopted you as his
own children. Now we call him, “Abba, Father.” For his Spirit joins with our spirit
to affirm that we are God’s children. (Romans 8:15-16)’
Knowing we are called His own, is a tremendous blessing and a celebration all in itself.
It is the greatest gift we can receive. We get the joy of entering an adventurous, glorious relationship with our Creator. Simply because He loves us. This is why He came. This is why God sent His Son to die on the cross for our sins. Out of His love for us. He came to be with us, and wants to give us the greatest gifts we could ever dream of. He has poured out His love for us – like none other.
‘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. (1 John 3:1)’
If you are waiting for that special man to enter your life…
It is easy to observe others’ “happy-on-the-outside” relationships. We need not look any further in the world – to find the One who will love us and transform our lives. It’s comforting to know we are God’s first choice. He knows our flaws, and chooses us anyways! And, He continues to pursue us on a daily basis. That’s a glimpse of our heavenly Father’s love for us. He gives the right to be called children to those who believe in His Son Jesus Christ, and the gift of salvation we are given through Him alone!
How about you? Do you realize His pursuit of you? He hasn’t stopped pursuing you or caring about you, my friend. He is crying out for you to ‘come’, to recognize He is desiring a relationship with you through His Son!
