Beloved of God - Free Resource

 

Thanks to Precept Ministries International, learning inductive Bible study skills changed my life!  I did not learn how to discover truth for myself until I was in my 40's but once I learned how to mine God's Word, I found treasures...and I'm still digging and discovering. Hallelujah!

 

When I first started studying inductively, I thought I knew a lot about God but boy was I wrong!  I didn't have a right understanding of God and I didn't have a right understanding of who I am in Christ.  Getting my mind around the character of God and that I am Beloved of God were  major markers in my spiritual growth.  So, about 10 years ago, I wrote them down in a little book and enjoyed sharing these truths and the little book with as many women as the Lord sent to me.

Why I am sharing the PDF to this little book now?

 

·  This week I received an email from a woman who told me learning these truths had been a marker in her life and wanted to know if she could get the book to share with someone else.  I told her I would send her the PDF.

·  It was just last week I had to remember that I am Beloved of God, take up these truths and do some mental battle!

·  I've learned so much since putting these truths in a booklet and for several years I've wanted to give it an update.  But, the Lord has had me busy doing other things and I don't see an update any time soon!

 


So, here it is: Beloved of God Book

When the little book was printed, I had wristbands made.  For over 10 years, when I needed to be reminded that I am Beloved of God, I would wear this wristband as a visual reminder. I've pulled mine back out!  I have about 10 of them left - do you want one?

Does the ruffle make me look fat?


We are at the beach for a long weekend.  I absolutely love the beach and I absolutely hate the idea of being in a swimsuit on the beach.. But, to fully experience the sand, the sea and the fun of it all - you have to put on a swimsuit. Yikes!  I do have a black and white swim moo moo and with pink flip flops and a pink float - I'm ready.  But the only way I can face the world in this get up is to remind myself of truths from God's Word.  Specifically, I am accepted in Jesus, the Beloved. Such a precious truth!

I am accepted by God and if He accepts me and loves me just the way I am, then I should be secure in that. A truth that can hold me when I walk out the door. And, taking up the truth that I am accepted in Jesus, can keep me from missing opportunities. Do you know what I mean?  Insecure moments...times when I don't think I measure up to godly or worldly expectations. Those moments can keep me from walking out the door (so to speak). There is no room for insecurity in my life.  Why?  Because I am accepted in the Beloved.

  • Because of my faith in Jesus, God has adopted me as His daughter. Eph. 1:4, 19
  • I have redemption through the blood of Jesus and forgiveness for my sins (past, present, future), Eph. 1:7
  • God lavishes His grace upon me. Eph. 1:7-8
  • I have been sealed with the Holy Spirit who is the pledge of my inheritance!  Eph. 1:13-14
  • Through Jesus I have access to God. Eph. 2:18
  • I am God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works. Eph. 2:10
  • God is able to do  far more abundantly beyond all I ask or think, according to His power that works within me. Eph. 3:20
  • My hearts desire is to walk in a manner worthy of these truths. Eph. 4:1
  • I am confident of this every thing, that He who began a good work in me will complete it.  Phil. 1:6

Ready or not...here I come!
