Matthew 3:17 – “This is my dearly loved Son, who brings me great joy.”
You are my beloved son in whom I am well pleased. I love you. I am so proud of you. Take my hand. Let us walk through this storm together. I will protect you. I am building a testimony in you through this test. Do not fear to hear my voice. The end is at hand. Have I the Lord not commanded you to stand still and see my salvation? That I will fight this battle on your behalf? Do no fear. Expect more. Raise your hopes. Lift them higher. I am coming – expect it. Do not expect an eventual miracle – expect one today. That I am not just working for you somewhere in the future, but that I am with you here today. That today I am for you. That today I am continuing to move the universe in your favor to bring you and your family to the outcome I have already determined beforehand.
Keep your eyes up. I am your help. Men say, “what can be done?’ But I say that I have come that you might have abundance of life. Nothing is impossible for me. Increase your faith. See yourself as I see you. you are highly favored. You are my beloved son. I am pleased with you. I have ordered your steps, and I am leading you into victory so that you may lead the captives to victory as well. You are here for a purpose and a reason. That you might see the great need of men for the good news. Do not disqualify yourself. Do not fear. For I am preparing you for something greater through this trial. I need to destroy fear in you in order for you to accomplish my plans and purposes. Do not compare yourself to others and think less of the miracle I am about to do in your sight. I have given you favor. Do not think you have squandered it.
Remember my words to you. “You cannot lose.” What if what I am doing in you is what I did in Gideon? Making the victory even more spectacular by hedging the odds against you in the natural? Do not disqualify yourself from victory because of anything you have or have not done. My promise is not dependent upon your performance. It is dependent upon my nature. My goodness. My faithfulness. I am good. I the Lord have made a favorable declaration concerning you. No one can stand in my presence and defy my words. My words will come to pass. Will you stand in faith and agree with me? Will you believe?
