B E L O V E D


Now, these innocent letters can be read two ways, and both ways act as bountiful truths to soothe our weary souls. ~BELOVED~

Meaning that we are precious in the sight of our Savior. We are holy and blameless in His sight (Ephesians 1:4) and more precious than rubies (Proverbs 3:15). God created us and He instantly loved us. God, seeing us as His little children, seeing our future sins and scars, said "wow, you are good" (Genesis 1:31). He loves us not because we are perfect, but because He wants to. God's love is His gift, not our mission


So we are beloved in the sight of our Creator. Now what? ~BE LOVED~

We can say these truths and quote scripture, but we need to believe and receive what God promises us. We need to BE. I know for me, I honestly don't believe that God could love me. Because I'm not perfect, not enough. We seem to always be lacking. But Jesus says otherwise, and He knows us better than we know ourselves! Our thoughts, our guilty desires, our selfish ambitions, our cruelty, everything we want to hide, He knows it all (Psalm 139). But here's the game changer:


HE SAYS WE ARE ENOUGH!! Jesus came down to earth to make us enough, and now we must believe that we are. We can believe in Him.

In the early chapters of Genesis, while God is creating, the phrase "and it was so" kept popping up. God created the heavens and the earth, and it was so. The birds and the fish, and it was so. Night and day, and it was so. Man and women, and it was so.


This language leaves no room for negotiation. The Creator says its so, and so we can rest in the assurance that it is.


If our all-knowing Maker says we are good and precious and loved, then we better believe it. If He says that our salvation and relationship with Him is His gift and not our earning (Ephesians 2:8), then we gotta let go. Let go of the belief that we are unlovable and not enough, and instead retrain our brains to the truth of the One who knows us better than we know ourselves.

We are loved by God.

We are beloved by our Abba.

Now, let go and

BE LOVED
