It has been my habit in my prayer time to praise God for who he is; telling him that I love him and that I long to be with him. This morning, his response was crystal clear. For he began to tell me who I am. I am his child, chosen and elect, beloved, more precious than silver or gold. I am his costly treasure, the apple of his eye, and the pearl of great price. I am precious to him, his little lamb, his delight. I am the joy set before him, the reason for all he does, his prize.
Wow! What a beautiful way to start the day. Worship truly is the doorway to his presence.
