And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with Him I am well pleased.” Matthew 3:17

The child Jesus grew to be a man. As He followed God’s call on His life, which He knew was His purpose for being on earth, this moment occurred after His baptism. Today you are invited to consider where God may say these words to you. What are you doing that pleases Him? How are you following His call on your own life? Where do you feel you are struggling – and where are you succeeding? Listen to God today – really listen. Don’t dismiss the idea of Him saying these words to you in your struggles or fear of failure, but listen with your ears, your mind, your heart – and even your eyes – and hear His voice as He whispers His love to you. Just believe in Him and rest assured that when you do so he is “well pleased”.

May God bless you with His pleasure in you today.

My love in life is to encourage others to deepen their relationship with God. I write devotional material, stories and small group studies with that in mind. I live in South Africa and also love spending time in the bush, bird watching and walking. I have moved to the coast and am enjoying the green spaces and beautiful vistas that surround me, reminding me of God's grace every day.
