And a voice came from heaven: “You are my Son, whom I love; with you I am well pleased.”
Thoughts on Today’s Verse…
Shortly after Jesus’ baptism, he went to face Satan in a grueling 40 days of temptation. Remember what Satan’s opening words were? “If you are the Son of God…” Wasn’t it great that God had already reassured him of his relationship before it was questioned? What do those you love need to hear from you today? You don’t know when their time of trial will come; you just know it will, so go ahead and reassure them before it’s necessary!
Almighty and loving Father, please help me to say the right words of love and affection to those whom I love so that when temptation comes, or when others try to draw them away from me, they will not doubt my love for them. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
