Little Children, 7/7/14

Dear Little Ones,

God loves you and I love you and I want to bless you today, I want you to know how special you are. God says the you are the apple of his eye:

Zechariah 2:8
For thus says the Lord of hosts: “He sent Me after glory, to the nations which plunder you; for he who touches you touches the apple of His eye.

God is your loving Father and He cares for you so much that he will be very stern with anyone who hurts you:

Luke 17:2
It would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were thrown into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones.

That is great love! He loves everyone and wants to do good to everyone but you, as his precious little ones, are so important to him that he will deal very seriously with anyone who treats you badly. That is how great his love is for you.

He has a great plan for your life:

Jeremiah 29:11 [Full Chapter]
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Each one of you is unique and God created you to do great and specially things in the world to build his Kingdom:

Ephesians 2:10
For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.

Each one of you is made in the image of God and you reveal the nature of God in a unique and special way. Each of you is meant to grow up to be a full-grown, mature son of God, he is your Father. His plan for you is that you grow to be a brother to our Lord and King, Jesus Christ:

Romans 8:29
For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.

Hebrews 2:10
For it was fitting for Him, for whom are all things and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons to glory...

You are to be those sons of God, brothers of Jesus, who are brought to glory:

Romans 8:30
Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified.

You are precious to God and to those of us in the world who love you. You have a beautiful life ahead of you as you follow Jesus so give all of your heart to him and make him your best friend. God the Father is the perfect Father and his love for you is perfect and he will always show you what you need to do. Even we adults who love God and love you make mistakes and even when we want to show you the right way, we fail. But God will never fail you and when we adults make mistakes, God can show you a better way so always listen to him the most and do what he says, no matter what he tells you to do, because he loves you and knows what is best for you.

I pray you know the fullness of The Father's love for you and how beautiful you are to him. He cares for you veery need and knows every little detail about you and your life an you are of great great value and worth to him:

Luke 12:7
Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.

So God loves you and so do I so I pray that you know how loved and special you are. May our Father bless you and shower his amazing love over you and prosper you in every way.
