"About [insert your name] He said:Let the BELOVED of the LORD rest secure in Him, for He shields him all day long, and the one the LORD loves rests between His shoulders."
This will always be a favorite verse of mine. I received it at the She Speaks conference last summer after praying at the cross. It marks a milestone in my life: no more living in who I was from my past, but living in who I was in Christ, present tense-Secure in Him.
How is it that we can know that we can live securely in Him? Because we are His BELOVED.
"BELOVED" is defined as "greatly loved; dear to the heart."* YOU are greatly loved and dear to our Saviors heart. Rest in that today. Take time to praise Him for this perfect gift-His love. No matter where we are in life, no matter what we have done (good or bad), no matter the attitude of our heart, He loves us (present tense). Notice I didn't say He loved us (past tense). We are His BELOVED.
