I am my beloved’s, And my beloved is mine. He feeds his flock among the lilies.
- Song of Songs 6:3 (NKJV)
Beloved is your truest identity.
In this broken world, it can be easy to forget how loved you are.
Throughout the world, there are so many people hungry for belonging. They seek validation and identity in labels and temporary worldly things that will never bring true soul satisfaction or soul-rest like the love of God.
But because you belong to the Lord, He sees you wrapped in the radiance and light of His righteousness.
He is well aware of your imperfections and sin nature, but you are still holy in His sight because you are covered with His robe of righteousness.
Since God views you as His beloved, He longs for you to view yourself the same.
It grieves the heart of the Lord when we have resentment towards ourselves and believe the lies of the enemy.
When you look into the mirror or feel the urge to think or speak negatively about yourself, instead say, “I am my Beloved’s.”
Remember you are dearly loved by the King of Kings.
He sees you as beautiful and radiant.
He sees you holy and confident in Him.
He says you have peace in Him.
He says you have His sound mind.
He says you are cherished.
He says you have His spirit of power and love.
He says you are as bold as a lion.
He says you are perfectly loved.
He says you are His beloved and that you belong to Him.
“Lord, help me to never forget my truest identity in you. Forgive me when I’ve let other things of this world take your place. To you, I belong. I am your beloved, as you are mine.”
