YOUR BIGGEST AFICIONADO!
When God SPOKE the world (The Heavens, Earth, Land, Water, Sky, Sun, Moon, Stars, and Vegetation) into existence and populated it with all its inhabitants, the bible says five times that “HE SAW THAT IT WAS GOOD”, as a pleased artist stepping back to admire his creative Masterpiece: a reflection of His power and might. Then, a conversation/decision took place among The Tri-une God (God, Jesus, Holy Spirit) to MAKE man into their likeness, a reflection of Himself.(Genesis 2:7:“The Lord God formed the man from the dust of the ground and BREATHED into his nostrils, the breath of life, and the man BECAME a living being). The Psalmist says of this intimate involvement in piecing us together: “YOU HEM ME IN BEHIND AND BEFORE ;YOU HAVE LAID YOUR HAND UPON ME. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain” and “ For you created my inmost being You KNITTED ME TOGETHER IN MY MOTHER’S WOMB. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made, Your works are wonderful. I know that full well.”, bearing His fingerprints (Psalm 139:5-6; 13-14).
Sometimes we forget, the preciousness of the intricacy of how we came to be: the affection, love, admiration with which we have been sewn together with. We are THOUGHT, FINGERPRINT, IMAGE, AND BREATH BEARERS of the Almighty created to reflect His glory. In the midst of society, expectations, and demands of life, we forget that we have a Heavenly Father who has already clothed us with worth, glory, and honored us with His very breath. If you have ever wondered if God is pleased with you, may Zephaniah 3:17 become the anthem and declaration of your heart: “The Lord God is with you, He is mighty to save. He will take GREAT DELIGHT IN YOU, HE WILL QUIET YOU WITH HIS LOVE, AND WILL REJOICE OVER YOU WITH SINGING.” Yes, you have a mighty God who saves you through Jesus Christ, who delights, loves, and sings over you. May this truth quiet your heart knowing that God is your biggest “AFICIONADO”. I also pray that you would pause and ponder on the length He has gone to redeem you back to Himself. He is constantly speaking your worth back to you. May His voice be the loudest and the clearest in your ears while drowning all others. He is a Father who thinks the world of you and in His wisdom reflected this very joy that He has for you through your earthly parents, guardians, siblings, and friends. I can barely stand it!!!! “WOOHOO” IS YOUR BIGGEST FAN???
