Everything heaven contains has already been lavished
upon us as a love gift from our wonderful heavenly Father, the Father of our Lord Jesus – all because he sees us wrapped into Christ.
This is why we celebrate him with all our hearts!
– Ephesians 1:3 (Passion Translation)
Do you know what this means?
You are blessed beyond your wildest imagination. Everything that is Mine is yours. I’m holding nothing back. If you can believe it, it’s possible. If you can receive it, it’s already yours. But, do you want to know the problem that you and so many of My children struggle with?
My goodness is so good, it’s unbelievable.
You see, you are so used to needing to be cautious and self-protective so that you’re not taken advantage of, that it’s hard to trust in goodness. In a fallen world, it’s easier to expect the worst than the best. Everything has a price, nothing that’s genuinely worth something is given away for free.
But that’s not the way Heaven works. That’s not the way the Kingdom works. And, that’s not the way My Fatherhood works.
My goodness is mind blowing. There’s no strings attached. There’s nothing you have to do to earn it. There’s nothing you can do to lose it. It just is. Because, it’s who I am. My goodness isn’t good because of you. My goodness is good because of Me. The only thing you need to do is believe it, experience it, and benefit from it.
Let Me be good to you. Stop trying to earn My blessings.
Stop thinking that you have to do something to position yourself to “be blessed.” Stop thinking your “goodness” will qualify you and your “badness” will disqualify you from being My favorite. You’re My favorite because You’re Mine. It’s My choice and I chose you.
Believe Heaven is your portion now. Let Me astound you with My goodness.
Believe that you are My favorite. Believe that you are blessed. Believe that you are prospering and that I am working all things together for your good. Believe that what looks like a setback, is actually a set-up. Believe that I really am your Good Shepherd and that you will not lack. Believe that I am faithful. Believe that I am capable of bringing My promises to pass.
But most of all, believe that I am for you, like nobody’s business and that you are loved beyond your wildest imagination.
