Isaiah 45:5-6 “I am the Lord; there is no other God. I have equipped you for battle, though you don’t even know me, so all the world from the east to the west will know there is no other God. I am the Lord, and there is no other.”
Psalm 100:3 “Know that the Lord is God. It is He who made us, and we are His; we are His people, the sheep of His pasture.”
Beloved, when I was creating the earth and setting out the design for everything that was to come, all that has been and that which has yet to pass, I looked ahead to this day, and I saw you. You are my idea for this time, for these people, for this place in all of eternity. I placed you perfectly where I wanted you, and I made sure you arrived. Before you were born I wove within you every essential part of who you are and every strength, talent and gift you need for each day you draw in breath.
I have seen the questions and heard the comments that have crushed your confidence and hidden from you the truths of your identity. I have felt the pain of judgement and criticisms you’ve endured, my treasured one. My heart has broken a thousand times, as you have been cut and bruised and battered by the words and images and actions of those around you, even those you have loved. It was My hand that formed each scar over every wound, to protect you.
Hear Me, dearly loved child, you are not who you think you are. You are Mine. Even though you may not know it, you belong to Me. You have always belonged to Me. You are My treasure! Who you are is Mine, My child, My creation, My idea, My plan set in motion with My breath and the beat of My heart within you. When you wonder about your identity, look for Me. I have the knowledge you seek and I will share with you the understanding of how you fit in this world at this time.
If you will seek Me out I will unlock for you the answers to all the many questions boiling within you. I will reveal the depths of your importance to Me, the value you carry, the reflection of Me hidden in the most secret places of you. When you know Me, you will discover the truest identity you carry.
Most importantly, who you are is Child Loved By Me.
