When my friend writes to me, she addresses her notes this way.
BELOVED Brenda! Blessed Beyond Measure. Highly Favored Child of God Most High.
I love it. It makes me feel special. But God thinks of me (and you) that way all the time. Why is it that we don’t take it in to the depths of our being? Listen to some of His comments.
Just as He says in Hosea, Those who were not My people I will call My people, and her who was not beloved [I will call] My beloved. (Romans 9:25, AMP)
Clothe yourselves therefore, as God’s own chosen ones (His own picked representatives), [who are] purified and holy and well-beloved [by God Himself, (Colossians 3:12a, AMP)
[O] brethren beloved by God, we recognize and know that He has selected (chosen) you; (1 Thessalonians 1:4a, AMP)
Beloved, we are [even here and] now God’s children (John 3:2a, AMP)
Prayer: Lord, thank you for loving us so very much. Help us love You in return. Amen.
