The Baptism of the Lord
It’s pretty rare that the heavens open and God’s voice thunders from above, but the Father is speaking words of love over us at every moment, and constantly showering us with tokens of his affection. It’s just that when we get too focused on ourselves—whether it’s admiring our accomplishments, bemoaning our weaknesses, or beating ourselves up over our failings—we fail to hear his voice and or recognize his kindnesses. You are beloved to God beyond your wildest imagining! The Father of Jesus takes great delight in you! That is your true identity. Rest in it, and live from it, always.
