“For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” Isaiah 9:6
I am loved. Unconditionally, totally and completely. I am loved by my Heavenly Father who gave me the best gift I will ever receive – the gift of His only begotten Son.
John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” God gave His Son to the world because He loved. He loved us when we didn’t love Him, obey Him or even know Him. He knew that the only way that we would come back into relationship with Him would be through Jesus and so He gave us the way back to Him. He loves us that much!
Through Jesus I am able to do all things. Through Jesus I can experience abundant life. Through Jesus I am accepted into God’s family. Through Jesus I can actualize my potential and become all that God has called me to be.
Each day, God’s gift to me keeps on giving. Today, I reap the benefits of His gift. I have life, identity and purpose. I am safe, secure and protected. I am loved.
