I so love how the Lord faithfully works in our lives! He loves us so much and yet He also understands that we need Him to continue daily to ‘change us from glory to glory’ into His image.
This morning I was spending some time alone with the Lord. I love my quiet time each morning with Him.
I was praying and chatting out loud to Him as I often do. It is funny because I already have received some revelations and understandings in some areas and yet my heavenly dad brought a new one to light today!
The Lord revealed to me over the past year that He loves me, He believes in me and He celebrates my life. This was a wonderful revelation to me. It was very powerful as there is only a very small handful of people on this planet that I could say believe the same thing of me.
So I love it when our Abba reminds me of these truths. I love thanking Him for each one. And that was exactly what I began to do in my special time with Him today.
As I looked up I said out loud, “Thank you Abba that You love me. You are prou…”
I suddenly stopped! These words were not what I was about to pray…
Proud of me? Is God proud of me?
I lifted my eyes up and said out loud, “Abba are you really proud of me?”
At the same time that I asked this question my mind was thinking, “How can He be proud of me? I mess up all the time! I make mistakes. I hurt people. I say the wrong thing! How can the Holy, Most High God be proud of me?”
I clearly heard the Holy Spirit say to my spirit, “Yes I am proud of you!”
It hit me like a crystal clear revelation that I had not known before. Tears came to my eyes and I just quietly thought on those words.
The one who created everything that is good is proud of me! The one who sees everything and who is ever present is proud of me! Wow!
What else can I say?
- I already knew His love was real, unconditional and unfailing.
- I already knew that believed in me. Even on the days when I struggle to believe in myself I know that my heavenly Abba believes in me without any wavering.
- I already knew and understood that He celebrates my life! He smiles when He sees me try new things. He reaches out His hand and helps me up when I fall. He is always there.
- Always loving, believing, cheering me on.
But somehow I was not aware that the Almighty God could even possibly be proud of me. How can that be?
I truly do not have an answer as to how, but I now know it to be the truth.
You know one thing that I love so much about our God? He knows each of us. He knows you and He knows me.
He knows what each of you is going through. He knows and understands your challenges, your joys, your pains, your struggles and your victories.
Your Abba knows exactly what you need to hear and to receive from Him each day. He is waiting for you to come to Him and to open up your heart to receive what He desires to give you. ☺
I encourage you today to set aside some time where you can be alone with your God. A quiet place, it may be inside your home or outside in His beautiful creation, but a place where you can just focus on Him, chat with Him and listen to what He wants to say to you.
Know this day that your heavenly Dad (your Abba) is proud of YOU! He loves you, He believes in you, He celebrates you and He is proud of you!
I pray with all my heart that you will also receive a revelation of your Father’s heart for you, even today and then each day after that.
