When I was inside my mother’s womb, the Lord God spoke softly to me, saying “My precious little one, I can see that your individual character traits are starting to be developed to prepare you to take your incredible journey into this world.” He also told me that, “Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee…” (Jeremiah 1:5). I couldn’t actually understand the words He was saying to me, but somehow, I knew what He meant. In His heavenly, binding, eternal love, the Lord was dealing with me through His own image that’s been implanted in the physical seed of life of all humanity.
When I became able to turn my little feet and kick and move in my mother’s womb, she would place her tender hand on that part of her abdomen. In the softness of her love, I could sense her saying to me, “My precious little one, I love you so very much.” I’m sure my mother could feel the sensation of that bonding moment in the process of the unveiling of the great mystery of human life. Inside her womb, I could be described as a living and a spiritual soul, because my soul came from God. This was a result of the supernatural inbreathing of His Spirit that first brought the nature of the human soul into existence.
After nine months in my mother’s womb, the heavenly Father, through His precious love, responded to my great struggle concerning my existence, telling me, “My precious little one, how you have developed!”
The limit for my life was set by God and He set the boundaries of my existence. Long before my mother ever conceived me, He knew when I would be born. And He also knows when and under what circumstances I will one day leave my body.
While I struggled as my mother gave birth to me, the presence of the Lord came spiritually, and He spoke softly to me before I left the womb. Once I was born and had been washed, I was able to proceed in my brand-new life, confident that I would have God’s love and grace.
As I began to respond to life outside the womb, the Lord carefully embraced me with His tender love and secured me with His powerful hands. He told me, “I understand the true meaning of the weaknesses of human nature from your forefathers’ first parents. I assigned the first man, Adam, to be the federal head of all life, and his wife, Eve, was appointed to be the first mother. She brought forth the true essence of the seed of all life to come, following man’s beginnings in the Garden of Eden.”
Then the Lord whispered to me, “You are My precious, little, living purpose of life.” He showed me that, throughout our human period of maturing, there will be some times of temptation that will encourage us to yield to our peculiar desires coming from the lust of the flesh and the pride of life as we mature. But, whenever the hearts of humanity are full of pride, ambition and love of the world, there’s no room for Me or My Word to live in them. Hearts are broken by man’s own sin and also by the sins of others. Only My love can change that and fill the heart. It’s My great desire for you to love others as I love you, and I also want to love others through you. I am still revealing Myself to hearts with love, through My Son, Jesus Christ, Who was also born of a woman.
As you mature, in this world you’ll find that “…the works of the flesh…are these: “Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, envyings, murders, drunkenness, revelings…[but] they which do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God“ (Galatians 5:19-21). The human nature of mankind has chosen to cut itself off prematurely from the spiritual nature that man originally received from My heavenly presence. The result has produced a spiritual distancing in man from My eternal love and grace. And this has forced people to be incomplete in their lives. There will always be a great struggle with the element of life’s presence in man’s fallen condition in this weakened and disorganized world. The world has not chosen to experience My love. In fact, it has no clue what godly love is.
But I have already provided power to live a godly life through the inward operation of My Holy Spirit. He’s the One Who can straighten out the crookedness of human nature and set the life forces moving in the proper direction. The results (or fruit) will then be “…love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance…” (Galatians 5:22, 23) in people’s lives.
But there is also somebody else who loves you, cares about you, and died for you. When all mankind was condemned to eternal death, He took your place so you could go free. Who is He? His name is Jesus, the One Who is love in person. And Jesus loves you too! He always has, and He always will. There’s nothing—not “…height, nor depth, nor any other creature, [that] shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 8:39).
I am your Creator, Who wants to share My heavenly compassionate love with all My precious little ones in My own eternal and spiritual existence. This means that I love you and have compassion for you. But love is not just an emotion I possess—it’s My very nature. No human being can ever fully comprehend My love. My love and grace were fully shown in the Cross of Christ, which is the greatest display of love—the proof of My love toward man, which includes you. This is how you can know that I love you.
