“And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” Matthew 3:17 KJV
When it was time for Jesus to begin His ministerial assignment, the first thing God the Father did was to affirm Him: You are my beloved Son in whom I am well pleased. You are my Son! The Beloved One! Whatever happens, don’t worry, you are my son. I can’t leave my son to go under. I can’t leave my Son to die in the storms of life. And so Jesus was never stranded in life.
In the book of Genesis chapter 37, I saw the same template. In verse 3, the Bible says that Jacob loved Joseph. The next thing Joseph did was that he was dreaming. You see, the dream you have cannot come forth until you understand how much God loves you. Joseph dreamt, his other brethren didn’t dream. It was only Joseph who dreamt. And when they tried to fight him, the Bible says he dreamt again. That is what happens to those who understand God’s love. They keep on achieving. You want to stop them but they keep on achieving more. You want to stop them, but they will do another one. While you are busy fighting them, they are busy taking giant strides. That will be your portion.
Wherever the enemy had stopped you, there shall be a turn-around. You are breaking loose. Your story will not end in shame. Your story will not end in disgrace, because God loves you with an irrevocable love. You will still dedicate your baby.
You will build your house. You will buy that car. You will wear what you want to wear. You will eat what you prefer. Your children will not be vagabonds. God loves you. I don’t care about the competition that is in the world, because of God’s love, you will be the next testimony. What God puts inside you will distinguish you among your peers.
