“While he was still speaking, a bright cloud covered them, and a voice from the cloud said, ‘This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased. Listen to him!’ ”

– Matthew 17:5

It’s a necessity for us to embrace God’s vantage point. We do this by starting with the words that God speaks over you right now. As God looks at you with all your baggage, all the things you have done wrong, all your sins, all the things others have said about you, and all your secrets, He says, “This is my beloved daughter, and this is my beloved son, and I am well pleased with you.” 

At the core of the Gospel is hearing these words of encouragement, believing these words, and making your whole life a response to this! However, the more you say and believe that you are a beloved child of God, the more the world will tell you that you are not. And the unfortunate thing about life is that if you’re making a difference, you’re becoming an enemy to somebody. Now, we don’t like to think about this, but there are people who don’t like those who stand out from the crowd, especially when it comes to personal character.

Friend, the Lord is pleased with you, yet every individual has two choices in life. Either you can choose to be less than who you were made to be, or you can choose to be all that you were made to be. As you choose to be all that you are made to be, there’s always someone who won’t like it, and that’s ok. Let’s choose to live in the love of God, and embrace the truth that you are His beloved son and daughter!


Father, thank you for being pleased with me. I choose to be all that you have made me to be.


Do you acknowledge that the Lord is pleased to have you as a son or a daughter? What can you do to respond to His approval?
