As you engage with my heart you will no doubt hear and feel my good pleasure for you. You will encounter my joy, and experience how proud of you I am. For I am not ashamed of you in any way, but I call you my own, a lamb without or blemish. And as you walk with me again and again, over the course of years, you will come to experience my extravagant love for you, for I desire to reveal my heart of pleasure and joy over you (1).
I will sing to you in the morning and whisper to you in the evening. I will make myself known to you, and you will come to know me personally, and intimately. You will be my child, and I will be your father. I will be your God, and you will be my people. Know my heart desires you more than you realize. Know I love you more than you realize. Know I have pursued you, and sought you out, more than you realize (2).
All the things I continue to say and do, even to this very day. For my love for you is great, and my great love for you is unending, never wavering, never diminishing (3).
So rest and trust in this assurance, for there is nothing that will ever separate you from my great love. There is nothing you could ever do to cause me to love you any less. There is nothing you could ever do, to lose my attention, or lose my favor (4).
So be confident in this, for you have been joined with me in a permanent manner, and nothing will take you away from me. You have been given to me, and no one will snatch you from my hand. So rest in this truth, for you will be at ease as you come to realize just how powerful I truly am, and just how much I truly love you (5).
