I’ve been following the Made to Crave devotional by Lysa Terkeurst. Day 18 was an amazing day. It encompassed the verse Matthew 3:17.
…and behold, a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.”
I changed the wording to speak about me. “This is my daughter, whom I love; with her I am well pleased.” WOW, did that speak to me. My daughter! Whom I love! Well pleased! I was brought to tears when I reworded it to include me, personally. My God loves me, not because I’ve done something to deserve it, not that I ever could. The Lord is well pleased with me. My obedience pleases Him.
I needed those words this week. Thankful for the blessings and love I don’t deserve.
