THOUGHT OF THE DAY
“As soon as you began to pray, an answer was given, which I have come to
tell you, for you are highly esteemed.
Therefore, consider the message and understand the vision. “
“for you are highly esteemed”
For a long time I always thought this statement was reserved for Daniel only. In my mind
It was expected that YAH would think about Daniel in that way. He loved the Lord in
such a unique way! He is one of my heroes.
That statement could not possibly refer to me as well. How could I compare myself with Daniel. There is no way
YAH would think the same of me the way He thought about Daniel. It just wasn’t
possible. And that’s what I thought….
“He said, “Daniel, you who are highly esteemed, consider carefully the words I am about to
speak to you, and stand up, for I have now been sent to you. “
Daniel 10:11, 12
“Daniel, you who are highly esteemed”
But thinking about that a bit more recently I realized I was looking at this all wrong.
In His eyes I AM highly esteemed and that has nothing to do with anything I have
Daniel wasn’t highly esteemed by the Father because of the exploits he did.
The love YAH had for Daniel was because of His abundant mercy and grace!
Daniel loved YAH and lived a life that was set apart for Him but to say that was why
he was highly esteemed by YAH is wrong.
So what does all this mean for us??
It means we are highly esteemed and more! YAH’s love for us cannot be explained or put
Like Daniel, His love for us is intense.
His love for us is consistent. It will never fluctuate.
The conclusion is this, you are highly esteemed by Him and don’t
let anyone tell you otherwise!
Bless you friends…..
