You, dear one are the beloved of the Lord and He whispers to your heart all the day long.
Can you hear Him, Beloved? You are so loved. Oh, how He wants you to be confident in His love for you.
Beloved of the Lord…you don’t have to wait to be loved.
You are to Him, His Beloved, His Precious Possession, one He has redeemed by His blood. He calls to you and hopes you will come and dwell in safety by Him. He wants you to be His dwelling place and thinks of you as His place of holy habitation.
He is calling you to a place of rest and He longs to shelter you all the day long beneath the hiding place of His wings. In that place of sheltered rest He will speak of His love for you and teach you how to live in a way that reveals the image of His nature.
He is for you Beloved. He adores you and loves you fully and freely.
You don’t need to be afraid or cower behind in shame. His love covers you, He builds you up with His lovewords and He will hold you there in that special dwelling place between His shoulders. He will help you to see from a higher perspective and His love will enable you to see others as He sees them. Trust Him beloved.
Trusting Him as Abba Father ~ trust His love, His ability to provide and take you to the places He would have you go. In the times of difficulty you will still be in that special spot as He carries you on His shoulders. Can you hear Him as He calls you to rest in comfort and peace in His Presence?
There is no one like our God. There is no one else who has promised to ride the heavens to help you. No one else who promises that we would see His excellency and majesty on the clouds.
He carries you and in the carrying He is and ever shall be your refuge.
Beloved underneath you are His everlasting arms and He will never let go. You don’t need to ‘hang in there’, you only need to rest in the promises He has made you and know that He will fulfill His word. It is not by your might and power that anything is accomplished, the forming of the eternal fruit of your life is accomplished as a result of the working of the Spirit of God in you. Learn to yield to the workings of the Holy Spirit so His work is not hindered.
He has said if you would prepare your heart and stretch out your hands toward Him, He will receive you. When you put iniquity behind you, walk away from it and pursue Him with your whole heart, then, truly, with the utmost confidence you can lift up your face to Him being without spot, blemish or wrinkle.
He has promised you steadfastness of heart. A heart free from fear, full of His love. His promise is sure, your times of misery will be forgotten in the light of His glorious grace. The past has been washed away by the blood of Jesus, it has been washed away as the the fresh tidal waters cleanse the sands of a beach. Beloved, in spite of what you may have done, His blood has made you pure, whole and clean.
Your life holds the sure promise of God, held carefully and cherished within your heart.
The promises of God are sure, they are yes and amen in Christ Jesus the Lord. Your Lord. He has birthed His hope within your heart and since all of your hope and expectation is in Him, you can expect that He will cause your life to shine brighter than the noonday sun. You can expect that the light and glory of God will fill, surround and shine through you because it is His promise.
You shall rest and be secure, beloved because you have hope borne of faith. Your hope and faith work together and His promise is sure that His mercies and love will never fail.
He is gracious and compassionate. Toward you. Towards all.
Give thanks beloved of the Lord. Give thanks with a grateful heart, sing praise to Him and remember, there is hope; there is always hope for the Beloved of the Lord.

Wonderful post, Jeannie. Rich and full of the Word. Don’t you just love this One we live for? Many blessings to you as you continue to follow and press in even deeper.
Yes, I love this One who calls me His Beloved. My hope is that I press in so deeply to Him that I am lost ~ but found in Him!
Beautiful! Without Him, there would be no hope. I just can’t imagine how people live without Him in their lives… just so sad.
