Heavenly Father, I come to You through the Name of Jesus as one of Your beloved children. What a blessing it is to be called a child of Yours. Galatians 3:26For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus.” Despite any label I may receive here on Earth, nothing is more important and humbling than to be part of Your family. You treat me as a son or daughter of the King and extend every familial right and privilege to me. Galatians 4:7Therefore you are no longer a slave but a son, and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.

Thank you for being quick to forgive and loving enough to pursue me through my sins and failures. You want what is best for me and do not shy away from loving correction in order to train me in what is good, right, and holy. Hebrews 12:11Now no chastening seems to be joyful for the present, but painful; nevertheless, afterward it yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.

When I am down, discouraged, or lonely, remind me of the privilege to be called a child of God and of the all-encompassing love that comes with being Your child. Psalm 119:114You are my hiding place and my shield; I hope in Your Word.

Thank you for the little song that expresses it all: “Jesus loves me this I know, for the Bible tells me so.” Amen.
