Thursday: 14th February, 2019
While many choose today, the 14th of February to let their loved ones know that they are loved and cherished, I just want to throw it out there that we do not have to wait for specific days to let them know how precious they are to us, everyday should be a valentine’s day. On this day and always therefore, God just wants to remind us that we are SPECIAL. That we are:
S- superior: “The LORD your God will make you the head and not the tail—placing you above and not beneath—if you obey the commands of the LORD your God that I’m giving you today to keep and observe. (Deut 28:13 ISV)
P- powerful: And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth. (Gen 1:28 KJV)
E- extraordinary: I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well (Ps 139:14 KJV)
C – chosen: You have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: (John 15:16a KJV)
I- Important: Long before God laid down earth’s foundations, he had us in mind, had settled on us as the focus of his love . (Ephesians 1:4 MSG)
A- Apple of His eyes: ‘For thus saith the LORD of hosts; After the glory hath he sent me unto the nations which spoiled you: for he that toucheth you toucheth the apple of his eye’ (Zechariah 2:8 KJV)
L – Loved: The LORD hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee.
I have loved you with an Everlasting Love (Jer 31:3 KJV)
So sweetheart, let this be your anthem today: walk chest out, eyes up and shoulders high because you are SPECIAL.
