God is our light and our salvation; therefore, we have nothing to fear. It is a beautiful thing to have forgiveness and cleansing from God. Each of us has a great potential for victory in areas we thought impossible to overcome.
Yet, most of us don't realize how great a love God has for us. If you are backslidden today, you are just a confession away from going on with God.
The joy of being forgiven as a Christian can be ours. All we have to do is listen for the tender voice of God saying, "My darling." When we see "beloved" in the Scriptures, remember it is God saying "My darling" to us. We are so special to Him. Oh, how He longs for us to know how much He esteems us.
Go through the Scriptures and look at every verse with "beloved" in it. By the time you are through, you will feel like a spiritual billionaire. God doesn't wait until we are perfect-any child of His is always "darling" to Him. He loved us so much that He went to the Cross and died on our behalf.
We are very, very special to God.
