INTO HIS IMAGE – PERFECTION
From the Father’s Heart: You are my perfect reflection. When I see you, I see my Son. When I look into His face, I see your face. He is in you and you are in Him. Therefore, you are in Us. (John 17) Yes, my child, you are now and always will be seated in heavenly places in Us. Now that you’re in Our family, Our one desire is that you will choose to be like us; see what We see; do what We do; talk like Us and walk like Us. We even want you to choose to think like Us for We have given you the fullness of who We are.
So, beginning today, when you look in the mirror, see Our reflection which is perfect, flawless, without blemish, and whole. For We have provided a place where you can be hidden in Us. Your reflection was nailed to the cross with Jesus Christ. It no longer exists. It was destined for death long ago in a garden. And in another garden, through the death and resurrection of your Redeemer, Jesus Christ, you received new life, new DNA, a new reflection. You have been re-born into your original design, into Our image.
I’m simply a proud Daddy who loves to see My likeness in you. We don’t give Ourselves in portions. The moment you received new life in Us, We gave you everything. You were birth into relationship as a firstborn son or daughter with all the rights and entitlements of a firstborn. Ours is an unusual family as there are only firstborns. There are no stepchildren, adopted children, wards, mistakes, illegitimate or unwanted children. You are to Us and always will be a firstborn and We’re so excited to see you awaken to the reality of who and whose you are.
We’re delighted to share that you were born into a royal family and crowned an heir with your first breath. The entire kingdom rejoiced and celebrated your arrival. Oh! We were and always will be excited that you are part of Us. Nothing shall separate Us and We shall never, ever, leave, forsake, abandon or deny you. Even if you choose to leave us, We will come after you or wait for your return. You’re in the family. You bear Our name and Our image and We have all eternity to proudly watch you grow into the fullness of that image, as a firstborn son and daughter of the Most High God.
