So often you get that sense that you might be disqualified, that I don’t really know you, or that you have been overlooked. Don’t focus on how ‘good’ you think others are, or how ‘bad’ you perceive yourself to be. I know you, love you and have opened the gate. Run through and enjoy my blessing – take your place at my table. You are so welcome! Start from this point in every situation and refuse to listen to the echoes of your past. You are part of my plan and purpose for this nation. You are mine, you are my child, you are needed, you are called.
1 John 3:1-2
Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God! Therefore the world does not know us, because it did not know Him. Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.
