I am your Father, and I love you even as I love my son, Jesus. John 17:23
Declaration Of The Lord’s Love And Provision
I am loved by the Lord with a lavish love simply because I am a child of the Father. No matter what I experienced at the hands of man or any earthly father, I am loved by God. He gives me more than any man can or ever will.
My heart is fully open to receive all He is and all He has for me. I receive the gracious gift of His heart today for He is a perfect father in every way. All good gifts come from His hand and His hand is stretched out to me, full and running over. He has provided for me and is providing for me in every area of my life. Everything I need is found in Him and the abundance of His giving heart. The plans laid out for my life before the foundations of the world are in His hands and He is implementing them in every area of my life. Not one moment of my life escapes His attention and in the process He infuses me with hope for He loves me with an everlasting love.
The thoughts of the Lord toward me cannot be counted and are as numerous as the sands of the seashore. Right now He is rejoicing over me with singing and is doing good toward me all the days of my life for I am His treasured possession. I am established by the Father for it is the complete desire of His heart to do so. Nothing is impossible with God, therefore; the establishing of my purpose and destiny is His priority this very moment and every moment after as He shows me great and mighty things. I will not miss the voice of the Shepherd as He reveals His plans for me for I hear the Shepherd’s voice and do not follow another…not even the voice of my own negative thinking or self-talk.
I am one who seeks the Lord with a whole heart. My heart belongs to the Lord and the Lord alone. He is Lord of my life in every way. I am a seeker and a finder of the Lord. The delight of my heart is in and for the Lord alone. I am delighting in Him and am receiving the desires of His heart as my own. I in turn am walking in the desires of my heart which came from Him in the first place. Nothing is impossible and He is doing more than I could ever imagine with my life through the power of love and constant encouragement. The Lord is my encourager today and I depend on Him and do not sway to any negative words of men.
I am comforted by the Father in all my troubles, therefore; I am not dismayed. I am a fortified city…a light on the hill and nothing can by any means harm me as I abide in the secret place of His love. Offenses have no power for I give all broken heartedness to Him and leave no room for unforgiveness. The Lord is close to me in my brokenness and loves me with a tender heart, calling me His own.
I am one who surrenders every broken or offended place to the Lord as He carries me like a shepherd carries his sheep. The Lord is my Good Shepherd and when I abide with Him eternally all tears will cease…all the pains of this life will be gone forever as I dwell in the fullness of His presence forevermore. All suffering in this life does not compare to the beauty of love He gives me right now and every day after. I receive love to overcome and be faithful. I receive love.
The Lord God is my Father…a father like no other and I am His son. I am loved by the Father as much as Jesus is loved by Him. As I abide in Jesus and Jesus abides in me the love of the Father is revealed in my life through His shed blood on the Cross. When I see Jesus I see the Father and when I know Jesus I know the Father for He is an exact representation of the Father. The demonstration of the Father’s love is manifest in Jesus and because Jesus is in me I also am a representations of the Father as I walk not according to the flesh. I walk according to the leading and guiding of the Spirit.
Today I am washed white as snow and my sins are not counted against me. The blood of Jesus is the most sure representation of the love of God for me. I receive all His blood has done for me and will not despise His love or belittle it in any way. I am one who loves God and is loved by God. He loves me and I love Him. I am walking in a daily manifestation of love toward God, toward others and toward myself. I am loved and I love. Amen
